[ARCHIVED] Blizzard Predicted for Monday Night through Tuesday

UPDATE: January 26, 2015
The National Weather Service has issued the following alerts for New Rochelle:
-Blizzard Warning from January 26 at 1PM until January 28 at 12:00 AM
-Coastal Flood Watch January 27 from 3-7 AM

A potentially historic storm is predicted, with high winds, high tides and snow accumulations in the range of up to 2 feet beginning Monday afternoon and continuing through Tuesday night.

Residents are urged to prepare accordingly. The following call was sent Citywide today at 12;30 PM:
A snow emergency will be in effect beginning 4pm today. A major storm is forecast to bring about two feet of snow to our region, with the heaviest fall beginning this evening and continuing through tomorrow. Here’s what you need to know:
Garbage pickup on Tuesday and recycling pickup on Wednesday are cancelled. Please remove cans or materials from the curb to clear the way for plows.
Move parked cars off the street and from open lots. On snow emergency routes, cars will be towed. If you don’t have other options, parking will be free in the New Roc City garage on levels 1 through 4 until noon Wednesday.
With high winds, there is a risk of power outages. If you lose power or to report a downed power line, contact Con Edison at 1-800-75-CONED or Never touch a downed power line.
If you use a generator, make sure it is properly vented to avoid carbon monoxide buildup - never place it inside your home or garage. And do not use the stove to heat your home.
For emergencies involving life, health, or safety, call 9-1-1. Do not call emergency services for any other purpose.
City crews will be working round the clock, but many roads, especially secondary and tertiary roads, may be impassable for a long time. Please plan accordingly, stay home, and avoid unnecessary travel. And also check in on elderly or infirm neighbors.
Non-essential City offices will be closed tomorrow.
Finally, to prepare for a possible loss of phone service, sign up now to receive emergency messages by email or text. Visit the City website at and click “Sign Up for Emergency and Information Alerts” in the lower right of the homepage.
