The following Storm Recovery Update was sent citywide today through the City’s emergency communications network.
This is a recovery update from the City of New Rochelle. Road clearance work continues, but about 2/3 of the community is still without power and Con Edison does not yet have a restoration timetable. We advise residents to plan for the worst. A shelter remains open at Albert Leonard Middle School, 25 Gerada Lane. Con Ed will distribute dry ice today at Yonkers Raceway from 12-6PM.
Regarding Halloween, use common sense and put safety first. Families who insist on trick or treating should exercise extreme caution, as wires and debris still create hazardous conditions. At a minimum, all children should be accompanied by adults and stick to daylight hours only. The toddler Halloween event at the Hugh Doyle Senior Center is cancelled.
