LETTER FROM SENATOR BALL: OCTOBER SNOW STORM

Hello Neighbors,

 

Last night, the entire Hudson Valley Region was hit with an unusual, late October snowstorm that dropped over a foot of snow in many areas across the region. The incredible weight from the heavy snow and ice caused many trees to fall, and in many cases, they fell on power lines, causing widespread power outages across the region.

 

A state of emergency has been put in place for in thirteen New York Counties including; Dutchess, Putnam and Westchester counties.

 

As of 12:15 AM, October 30th, NYSEG is reporting the following power outages by county:

 

Putnam County: 32,103

Dutchess County: 11,462

Westchester County: 30,011

 

Below, I have provided a list of important information that can be used to contact a wide range of resources including my office. As more information becomes available, I will provide updates via my Website at http://www.nysenate.gov/senator/greg-ball and my Facebook and Twitter pages.
