Sullivan roads, warming stations, dry ice


Emergency Operations Center, Bethel, NY - Sullivan County Manager David Fanslau issued the following statement: "A limited State of Emergency remains in effect through 12:01 AM Saturday to permit County officials to continue to coordinate efforts with the Public Works crews and utilities crews to open County and Town Roads. We had a conference call with County and Town Highway officials at 7:30 AM this morning, and a call is scheduled for this afternoon for County and Town officials.

NYSEG and Orange & Rockland Utilities have staff at our Emergency Operations Center. Utilities trucks are being paired with Public Works crews to attend to opening the remaining County and Town Roads that have trees and wires down. The main issues remain that 27,307 locations remain without power throughout the County, County and Town Roads have hazardous conditions and those without power are in need of dry ice and bottled water.

The utilities companies should complete their assessment stage, which will be followed by restoring power to their substations, followed by restoring power to the distribution system that provides power to residents and businesses. The Sullivan county Legislature and Town officials remain engage and concerned with the conditions that need to be addressed as a result of Hurricane Sandy.
