ARE THERE DRAINS THAT NEED TO BE CHECKED OUT BY PUBLIC WORKS DEPT BEFORE STORM?
Release Date: October 24, 2012

We have been advised that there is a potential for a severe storm early next week. I have asked the Public Works department to check drains and to take proactive measures to reduce the possibility of flooding. If there is a drain on your street that you think needs to be cleaned out before the storm hits us – please e mail me and I will contact the Public Works Department and ask that they send a crew out before the storm. My e mail is pfeiner@greenburghny.com
If you have any other suggestions as to proactive measures the town should take before the storm hits our area – please advise. PAUL FEINER
 
 
WEATHER STATEMENT
SIGNIFICANT STORM POTENTIAL EARLY NEXT WEEK… OVER THE PAST COUPLE
DAYS, WE HAVE BEEN CLOSELY MONITORING A POTENTIAL STORM FOR THE DAYS LEADING UP TO
HALLOWEEN. CURRENTLY, TROPICAL STORM SANDY IS LOCATED OVER THE CARIBBEAN AND WILL BE
TRACKING NORTH THE NEXT FEW DAYS, LIKELY IMPACTING JAMAICA AS A MINIMAL HURRICANE. SANDY
IS THEN EXPECTED TO HEAD NORTHWARD INTO THE BAHAMAS AND THEN BE POSISTIONED OFF THE
CAROLINA COAST THIS WEEKEND. MEANWHILE, A STRONG UPPER LEVEL TROUGH WILL BE DIGGING
THROUGH THE MID-SECTION OF THE COUNTRY. HOW THE UPPER LEVEL TROUGH AND SANDY INTERACT
WILL ULTIMATELY DETERMINE THE IMPACTS ACROSS THE NORTHEAST.
TWO SCENARIOS EXIST FOR THE STORM INTO MONDAY AND TUESDAY: ONE TRACKS SANDY TOO FAR EAST
AND OUT TO SEA, LEAVING THE NORTHEAST WITH ONLY RAIN SHOWERS AS A COLD FRONT PASSES
THROUGH. THE SECOND SCENARIO INVOLVES THE TROUGH WRAPPING SANDY WEST-NORTHWESTWARD,
THUS CREATING A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT SOMEWHERE BETWEEN THE DELMARVA AND CAPE COD. THE
SECOND SCENARIO WOULD BRING HEAVY, FLOODING RAINFALL, DAMAGING WINDS AND SUBSTANTIAL
COASTAL FLOODING/BEACH EROSION TO THE NORTHEAST.
WHILE THE POTENTIAL IMPACTS ARE HIGH, THERE CONTINUES TO BE MUCH UNCERTAINTY IN THE TRACK
AND STRENGTH OF THIS STORM. WE WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR SANDY CAREFULLY OVER THE COMING
DAYS AND ALSO PROVIDE DAILY UPDATES WITH REGARDS TO THE STORM.
• As of 2 pm yesterday, Tropical Storm Sandy contains winds of 50 mph and is moving NNE at 5 mph
• Sandy will continue to move northward and strengthen, likely striking Jamaica as a hurricane Wednesday
• Sandy is projected to continue northward thru the Bahamas Fri, moving east of the Carolinas this weekend
• Monday into Tuesday will be critical as the storm may be pulled westward into the Northeast or pass
eastward out to sea, uncertainty remains high during this time frame.
