The Clean Up Has Begun!
Hurricane Sandy has left Newburgh NY. The rains and wind have died down and the sun even came out for a brief moment or two today. A storm of an unprecedented magnitude has now passed our area and moved on. I can’t say that I know anyone that is not happy to see this uninvited guest leave our region.
In her wake, Hurricane Sandy downed trees and cut off electricity to many areas. Many people are looking for answers as to when power will be restored to Newburgh, Cornwall and New Windsor. The cleanup crews were out in full force today cutting down trees and removing debris from all over the area. Crews are out working nonstop to restore electricity to everyone as quickly as possible. Schools were closed today and we are all hoping that they will open again tomorrow.
Compared to Hurricane Irene we had much less damage and flooding in general. For me? I felt that we were spared during this storm. Our trees are still standing and we never lost power. Enough rain and wind for anyone with an affection for such, but I am sure that it is just a prelude to an active winter this year.
NYC had a much more difficult time during the storm, as did the coast of New Jersey. I am hoping that FEMA gives them the assistance they need and things turn back to normal as soon as possible.
Info on status of power restoration can be found by visit this site for updates on power restoration. Check for school and other closings too. The news here will also let you know what is happening in the area. Stay safe and warm and be patient while the power lines are being repaired.
Newburgh was spared the worst of the storm and now it is time for us to get back to normal. The clean up has officially begun!
