The next winter storm is expected to hit our region beginning between 4 am and 6 am on Wednesday, March 7th and leave 10 - 18 inches of snow. Wind gusts are expected to reach 35MPH. If you must travel, please give yourself enough time to clear your vehicle of snow and ice, travel at a safe speed and braking distance. Be very careful when using the road shoulders, as many of the downed trees have been cut back to the road edge.
The Town Highway Department will be working round the clock to ensure safe passage of town roads. The Highway Department cannot remove downed trees if there are any electric lines in, on or near the trees. Central Hudson or its partners is responsible for removing these hazards.
Central Hudson has reported that there are still 395 Town of Washington customers without service. They anticipate that almost all of those customers will be restored by 10:00 PM this evening.
There are still a number of broken tree limbs in the trees. Assess your property for hazards to you and the traveling public. Consider contacting a snow removal company if you have a dangerous situation.
Please continue to well visit checks on family and friends. Hypothermia is a very real concern if someone has fallen outside of their home.
