Fallsburg Should Be Spared Nemo’s Wrath

 

Supervisor Steven Vegliante

By Steven Vegliante

 

Sullivan County officials have indicated that the predictions that they are receiving from the National Weather Services is that Blizzard Nemo will be “for the most part” a snow event with some wind that will see major accumulations of snow to begin Friday afternoon and continue until Saturday morning.

 

Light snow or flurries should develop Friday morning, with steadier and heavier snow anticipated Friday afternoon and much of Friday night, likely starting between noon and 3:00 p.m. Snowfall rates of an inch or more per hour are possible Friday evening.  Storm totals of 8 to 12 inches, with locally greater than a foot possible in Eastern Delaware, Eastern Sullivan, and Eastern Pike Counties.

 

Fallsburg Central School’s have already announced that JSHS will be closing at 11:00 AM today and the BCES will be closing at noon.

 

Our Town of Fallsburg Highway Department is ready for this storm event and will be working throughout Friday night to plow our roads.  Our Town of Fallsburg Police Department and various Fire Departments are on standby to answer any emergencies that may arise from this blizzard.  NYSEG is also ready to respond to any downed powerlines and to respond to any interruption to electrical service as a result of the expected heavy snowfall..

 

We are asking our residents avoid unnecessary travel in the Town of Fallsburg. Make sure you have emergency supplies on hand in case of a power outage.

If someone you know needs assistance during the storm, we are asking you to alert the police department at 434-4422 rather than try and travel dangerous roads yourself.  

 

Please check for NYAlert messages from the National Weather Service as the storm progresses.

 

Stay Safe.

 

Steve
