SOMERS, N.Y. - At noon on Thursday, November 3, Supervisor Mary Beth Murphy reported that 1,000 Somers residents were still without power. NYSEG reports that it is working on every circuit which supplies power to the town, she said in a press release. Customers in more isolated or more heavily damaged areas may be out until Friday.
The town is still in constant contact with NYSEG and strongly pushing for restoration. If you do not have power yet, Murphy advises that you contact NYSEG immediately.
The emergency shelter at the Middle School has been closed. Anyone who still needs sheltering assistance should call 914-804-6544.
Self-serve dry ice is still available at the pavilion in Reis Park. People are advised to wear gloves when handling the dry ice, as it can cause frostbite. Potable water is still available, self-serve, at the Granite Springs and Amawalk Fire Houses. Bring your own containers.
Showers continue to be available at the NY Sports Center in the old Baldwin Place Mall. If you want to reach Supervisor Murphys office, call 914-277-3637 or 914-804-6544 (cell). For emergencies call 911.
Halloween celebration has been rescheduled for Saturday, November 5. Murphy is encouraging all interested residents to switch on their outdoor lights, set out their jack-o-lanterns and prepare their Halloween treat bags. Trick-or-treaters are cautioned to be careful of fallen branches and debris and advised to use flashlights and glow sticks and to eat wrapped candy only. Parents are asked to accompany children whenever possible.
