Sullivan County DPW crews have joined the Town of Thompson and NYSEG crews in working in coordination with SC Emergency Services in diligently clearing fallen trees and debris from roads and power lines throughout the Town of Thompson.
As of 1 pm, NYSEG reported that a little more than 3900 homes were still without power in the Town of Thompson.
These crews are doing all they can to get power restored and our town back to normal after the significant damage caused by Hurricane Sandy Monday night and Tuesday.  On behalf of my constituents, I want to thank them for their hard work and dedication to keeping us safe and secure during these hard days.
For those still out of power, dry ice will be available at both the Rock Hill and Monticello Fire Departments from 3 pm to 7 pm.  Rock Hill is also allowing residents to replenish their water supply or recharge their cell phones or other devices until 6pm.
A Stormline Helpline and Resource can be reached by dialing 211.  Non-emergency trees down reporting can be made at 845-807-0877.  A NYS Helpline can be called at 1-888-769-7243.
A limited State of Emergency in Sullivan County remains in effect until Saturday to permit County Officials to continue to coordinate efforts with Public Works and utility crews to open county and town roads.
