Anyone planning to utilize shelters, please remember to:

Residents who live in mandatory evacuation areas are reminded that if you do not evacuate, police, fire and emergency rescue personnel will not be able to help you once there is flooding and sustained winds of 50 mph.
Residents who wish to move their cars to safer areas may park in Village municipal parking lots and the LIRR parking lot.
As we mentioned previously, LIPA has advised us that since this is a slow moving, multi-day storm, it is likely that power outages will be long because it may not be possible to send crews in to fix the outages if the winds create life-threatening situations for LIPA crew.
