A Message from Governor Cuomo
Dear Fellow New Yorker:
Last night, Hurricane Sandy left our state with unprecedented damage, particularly in downstate areas of New York. Long Island, New York City and the Hudson Valley were hit hard by the storm surge, which caused massive flooding and power outages in many neighborhoods.
It is important that New Yorkers stay updated on what state officials are doing after the storm. You can stay updated on our efforts by visiting the Governor’s website at Governor.ny.gov.
On the website, you can view the latest transportation alerts for mass transit service, as well as bridge and tunnel re-openings. You can also view the latest power outage maps and reports from different power companies, as well as their contact information.
You can also follow @NYGovCuomo on Twitter for the latest updates and tips for after the storm.
If you need disaster assistance immediately, contact FEMA at 1-800-621-3362 or the NYS Hurricane Sandy Helpline at 1-888-769-7243.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by the storm, and we thank our first responders for working through the night to help ensure the safety of New Yorkers and put us on a path for recovery.
The Office of the Governor
