Hermine Prep

Resdients: Brief reminder. This message in not meant to be alarmist; merely precautionary. Firstly, in terms of the Storm Hermine, unfortunately, it still is not clear how much direct impact it will have on our communities. The biggest risk, historically, is of power outages. Based on current information, unless the storm intensifies or changes path, we expect sporadic losses of power. What that actually means at this point is not clear! Localized flooding is the other risk. And while the impact is unclear, it is recommended to take the following 6 steps now. If there is ongoing construction, secure your job site. It is the law in most areas. Keep PSEG-LI tel number handy, in case of outage: 800-490-0075 Homes and business is very low lying areas should prepare for possible flooding. Update your contact info at, for you and your family. Be a friend, forward this email/info to many others in the community in case they are not already signed up. Stay tuned for more information, from either the PWM OEM or from your village/town, as warranted. Peter Forman Commissioner Port Washington-Manhasset Office of Emergency Management
