Winter Weather Advisory – March 13th

As you probably know we are expecting a long duration weather event beginning tonight through Wednesday. We are expecting over 2 feet of heavy wet snow coupled with high winds in the Town of Hunter, Mountaintop area.

I just attended a conference call with representatives from Central Hudson and a follow up call with Greene County emergency operations in prepartion for this event. Central Hudson says they are staging 100’s of additional personnel to their service area and that they do anticipate this event having the potential to impact 10’s of thousands of people. Greene County also has preparations underway to implement emergency operations protocols and we will be staying in close contact with them.

We at the Town of Hunter will have our Highway personnel out plowing, and our ambulance, police and fire companies prepared for this event.

In general, we ask that people prepare today, to stay off the roads tomorrow.
We need all of our resources focused on the non avoidable weather event, and not having to deal with avoidable issues.

• Pay attention to weather advisories, storm outage updates and/or shelter information.
• Charge your electronic devices.
• Keep handy flashlights and fresh batteries;
• Obtain packaged or canned foods that require no refrigeration or cooking;
• PAvoid opening a refrigerator unnecessarily during outages, so that food lasts longer, an unopened refrigerator can keep food fresh for 24 hours;
Have a non-electric can opener;
• Keep an emergency supply of bottled water on hand for drinking and washing; and
• Fill bathtubs with water as added reserves.
• If you have a generator, make sure you have enough fuel on hand and that if you need to use it, that it is operated outdoors in a well ventilated area.

Stay tuned to the Town website and this page for any further advisories.
