Update from Oakmont Borough


✨New Director✨ of the Oakmont Carnegie Library, Caitlyn Boland, took Oakmont Borough Council on a tour of library. 📚 🗺️ Although many of us frequent the library, tours help council familiarize themselves with the successes, challenges, and needs of facilities and programming. There is always something to learn! 🤩 If you haven’t been to the library in a long time, you’ll find an amazing selection of books, technology, programming, and spaces to meet a variety of individual and community needs. Check out this beloved gem today! Thank you Caitlyn and all of the library staff for a great tour! #Oakmont #OakmontPA #OakmontBorough #OakmontCarnegieLibrary #LoveYourLibrary #CarnegieLibraries #Carnegie #Libraries #Books #Reading #Bookworm #FamilyFriendly #Makerspace #BookStore

Update from Oakmont Borough

🚨 👀🌪️ There has been a Tornado WATCH alert for Oakmont.

Definition from The Weather Channel:
TORNADO WATCH: Be Prepared! Tornadoes are possible in and near the watch area. Review and discuss your emergency plans and check supplies and your safe room. Be ready to act quickly if a warning is issued or you suspect a tornado is approaching. Acting early helps to save lives! Watches are issued by the Storm Prediction Center for counties where tornadoes may occur. The watch area is typically large, covering numerous counties or even states.

📢📢📢 FYI: 🚨🚨🚨
When severe weather, flooding emergencies, or any life threatening event that would require an emergency notification in Oakmont, the community alert sirens at Tenth Street and Virginia Avenue will activate. The sirens will cycle as a steady wail for 7 minutes, pause and then perform another 7 minute wail. This will be your indication that all residents should move inside or seek shelter. Once inside, you should check local media sites such as the national weather service or local news channels to get more information.
