Latest (and maybe last) Sandy Report from Ulster County Emergency Services


Good afternoon,
This may be the last Sandy report:

The County's State of Emergency was lifted at noon today.

The Emergency Operations Center is demobilized and will be closed at this time.

The only shelter that will be open tonight is at Belleayre.

A reminder that damage assessments are needed by noon tomorrow (PA and IA).

Currently there are 26,200 Central Hudson customers without power, and NYSE&G reports 4,494. All available crews are in the field. Please remember that all downed lines should be considered energized.

Central Hudson is distributing dry ice at Accord # 1 firehouse, Woodstock Community Center, and CHG&E Elting Corners facility all until 6 PM and at the Olivebridge firehouse from 5 PM to 8 PM. NYSEG's closest distribution point will be at the Pine Bush FD until 4 PM. The utilities will provide updates on future dry ice / water distribution points.

Thank you to everyone for all of your cooperation and dedication throughout this event. A fine job by all.

Art Snyder
