March is supposed to come in like a lion and leave like a lamb. This March came in like a lion and kept on roaring. The majority of the month of March was spent preparing for and responding to four nor’easters that impacted our region. On Friday, March 2nd we were hit by the first and worst of the storms. The winds gusted to 78 mph and caused catastrophic damage in the Town and much of Westchester County. About half of the residents of the Town were without power by the evening of March 2nd. The Town mobilized its Emergency Operations Center (EOC), connected with our Con Ed liaison, opened a warming center at the Senior Center/VFW and mobilized the highway department to begin the cleanup. Within three days, the highway department cleaned up all trees and debris that were not involved with downed wires. They continued to pick up storm debris for two weeks. Unfortunately, Con Ed didn’t have enough employees to provide cut and clear crews needed throughout the County. They called for mutual aid assistance, however, those crews didn’t start arriving until Monday. Town Administrator Steve Altieri and I were on daily conference calls with Con Ed and Westchester County advocating for assistance for our residents. I issued daily calls and e-mails with updates on recovery and municipal services. Notices were posted on the Town’s website and Facebook page as well.
