NORTH SALEM, N.Y.-Operating under a state of emergency, the town opened up a warming center at the North Salem Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Saturday, March 3, welcoming in from the cold those who lost electricity.
Supervisor Warren Lucas voiced his frustration over the power outages several times over the weekend, unable to provide residents with adequate information.
On Saturday, Lucas drove around North Salem to survey the damage from the violent winds.
“NYSEG crews are not out anyplace around us,” Lucas said. “The next meeting with NYSEG and the Public Service Commission should be interesting.”
He told residents to plan for a “multi-day event.”
Trees were downed in several locations, including in the parking lot of 121 Restaurant where, according to Lucas, “multiple cars were flattened.” There were no reported injuries.
The North Salem Central School District opened for students Monday, March 5, unlike several other surrounding districts.
However, according to the National Weather Service, a “plowable snow” was expected to fall Wednesday into Thursday, bringing more chaos to Westchester County. If that happens, check in with us on Facebook.com/NorthSalem for up to date information.
