Mangano Issues Nor’Easter Storm Alert

Nassau County Non-Emergency Hotline Now Open
With high wind gusts, heavy rain and coastal flooding expected from a Nor’easter approaching Long Island, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and Acting Police Commissioner Thomas C. Krumpter are advising residents to exercise caution, with the storm affecting Nassau County today, this evening and into Tuesday morning. The National Weather Service informs us that winds will reach 30-40mph tonight. Peak gusts up to 60mph will be possible.
All residents throughout Nassau County are reminded to tie down and secure all items outside their homes, as flying debris can be deadly. Residents should have flashlights and batteries in case the power goes out, and make sure generators are operational and have fuel.
Residents are advised to use caution if driving as puddling and flooding may make travel difficult. Use diligence and only use roads if necessary.
Non-life threatening emergencies – such as downed trees – can be reported to Nassau County’s Non-Emergency Hotline at 1-800-315-5153. Residents in an emergency situation should dial 911.
To report a power outage or electrical emergency, residents may contact PSEG Long Island at 1-800-490-0075.
The Nassau County Office of Emergency Management is monitoring the storm. Nassau County’s Emergency Operations Center has been activated. The Nassau County Department of Public Works has cleaned and cleared storm drains so that maximum capacity can be reached.
