Supervisor Declares State of Emergency in Islip

March 21st, 2018 – Town of Islip Supervisor Angie Carpenter declared a State of Emergency in the Town of Islip at 3 pm. today, Wednesday, March, 21, in response to Spring Nor’Easter Toby, a severe storm that barreled up the Eastern seaboard and across Long Island on this, the first full day of Spring. New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo declared a State of Emergency at 12 pm. today.

The Town of Islip is expected to see anywhere between 6-12 inches of accumulation between the evening rush hour Wednesday, through the night, and tapering off Thursday morning. Snow is expected to fall at a rate of 2-3 inches per hour, according to weather officials.

“These conditions have the potential to imperil the health, safety and welfare of the residents of the Town of Islip. I’m urging everyone to stay safe and stay indoors. Shoveling heavy snow can be life threatening. If you’re not accustomed to it, don’t do it. Wait for someone else to offer assistance.

Governor Cuomo Declares State of Emergency for Downstate New York Ahead of Coastal Storm

March 21st, 2018 – Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today declared a state of emergency for Putnam, Rockland, Westchester, Nassau and Suffolk counties, and all of New York City ahead of the coastal storm, which is expected to bring heavy, wet snow downstate through Wednesday evening. The Governor also announced 300 New York National Guard service members have been activated and will be deployed to areas impacted by the storm. Following recent weather events, the Governor directed rapid response teams comprised of Long Island Rail Road, Metro-North and utility company personnel to be prepared to address downed wires or power failures. The utility companies are partnering with the LIRR and Metro-North to deploy to weather incidents as they arise, and restore power as quickly as possible to New Yorkers.

The Governor also activated the State Emergency Operations Center. A combination of wet, heavy snow, winds of 20 - 30 mph, and gusts up to 45 mph is expected. Snow accumulations will range from 10 to 15 inches in the lower Mid-Hudson Valley and in New York City, with up to 18 inches in the Metro New York City area, and 4 to 10 inches of accumulation forecasted on Long Island with higher amounts in Suffolk County. Snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour are possible Wednesday afternoon, which will make driving conditions very dangerous as wet, heavy snow is expected.
