STAY INSIDE--50 TREES DOWN, ROADS CLOSED, TREE FELL ON HOUSE--DANGEROUS
Release Date: February 26, 2010

Just spoke with Commissioner of Public Works Victor Carosi; Deputy Commissioner of Public Works Butch Nanna and Police Chief Joe DeCarlo. The roads are dangerous. We estimate that about 50 trees around town are down. A number of roads are closed. Wires are down. A tree fell on the roof of a house within the past hour (fortunately there were no injuries). We anticipate lots of wind during the evening -- power outages, more trees that are going to come down and more road closings. STAY INSIDE. Cars parked on the streets will be towed tonight. Conditions are bad all over Westchester County.
If you have any questions you can e mail me at pfeiner@greenburghny.com. My home phone is 478-1219 and my office phone is 993-1545. I promise to return all calls and will stay in touch with the Commissioner during this snow storm. The following is an e mail sent to the Town Board from the Commissioner earlier tonight.

Subject: Snow Storm
Supervisor Feiner and Town Board Members,
Please  be advised all Highway Department employees as well as some Sanitation Department  and water shop employees are working to keep the Town roads passable.  In total we have about 48 workers out plowing, salting and clearing roads.   The snow is heavy and wet.  It is expected to continue through the night and into Friday.  Already we have had numerous branches fall and some isolated areas of power outages.  The roads are slippery due to the heavy we and slushy snow, but the workers are doing the best we can to address the conditions.
Trees and limbs are falling and at this time a fire is reported from burning wires.  Conditions are expected to worsen as the winds pick up and begin to blow down the trees already burdened with the heavy snow.
We will continue to work throughout the storm to maintain street safety as best as possible with the constantly changes and trying conditions.
 
Victor G. Carosi, P.E.
Commissioner of Public Works
