Headline:  Putnam County Emergency Operations Center Remains Open-Comfort Stations to Reopen 3/4/2018 @ 9:00 am

Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell continues to be at the Putnam County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to monitor and help prioritize the needs of our residents during this difficult time.

Residents encountering downed wires should assume they are live and stay at least 20 feet away. While most main roads are passable the secondary roads still have a number of trees and debris in place that are blocking safe passage. Some trees and limbs have partially fallen and are being supported by wires or other trees. These are particularly dangerous and residents should stay away from the area.

County Executive Odell has announced that we will continue to offer comfort facilities at the Putnam Valley Senior Center on 117 Town Park Lane in Putnam Valley NY for Sunday, March 4th, 2018 starting at 9:00 am. The county continues to work with our community partners and additional community comfort stations will be at; Temple Beth Shalom, 760 Rt 6, Mahopac, Knights of Columbus, 10 Fair St, Carmel and the Town of Kent Town Hall, 25 Sybil’s Crossing, Kent Lakes NY.

These comfort stations will be open from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm for residents to charge their electronic equipment and spend time in a warm environment.

“This storm has left many without power and we are working with our utility companies to effectively restore electricity as soon as possible, please check on family, friends and neighbors to make sure they are okay during this difficult time” said County Executive Odell.

Putnam County 9-1-1 remains fully manned and should be used for any emergency requests for Police, Fire or EMS.

Please continue to monitor NY-Alert for updates
