Winter Storm Update 1/4/18

A winter storm is expected to continue through today. The expected high winds could cause downed trees and power outages. It is important to make sure you have enough medication, food, water and supplies on hand.

The Town of North Hempstead would like to remind residents to keep their cars in their driveway in preparation for the upcoming snow storm. This will enable our plows to properly clear the roads. We also encourage people to stay home during the storm if possible. This will help prevent cars from getting stuck in the snow - impeding the ability of our highway crew to properly clear the roads. 

In addition, when shoveling out your car, please put the snow back on your own property and do not throw the snow back onto the street. Residents are also reminded to please check on any elderly neighbors during the storm. Also, please clear any hydrants by your home to allow firefighters to see and access them in case of an emergency.  

To report roads that need plowing or for any other questions or concerns please call 311 or 516-869-6311.  Call 911 for any life threatening emergency.  If you have lost power or need to report downed power lines, please call PSEG-LI at 1-800-490-0075
