WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – Stay inside Wednesday night, when the nor’easter moving into the area is expected to hit with sustained winds of 25-35 miles per hour and gusts of up to 60 miles per hour, the City of White Plains said.
If you must be outside, the city asks that you use caution. The most damaging winds are expected between 7 p.m. and midnight. However, at noon Wednesday, snow had already begun to fall in White Plains.
“White Plains is fully mobilized already as a result of Hurricane Sandy,” Karen Pasquale, of the Mayor’s office, said in regard to the coastal storm expected to hit Wednesday.
The city’s emergency operation center and emergency shelter remains open, and its public works department continues debris removal. The emergency shelter is at 65 Mitchell Place and has cots, blankets and warm food. As temperatures drop to around 30 degrees Wednesday night, the city encourages residents to take advantage of this resource, and tell anyone who is elderly or frail to do the same.
Seniors can also find hot lunches at the Community Center on 65 Mitchell Place, through its Nutrition Program. Call 914-422-1424 to make reservations.
