Snow will move into the area mid to late morning on Thursday. It will continue to snow throughout the day on Thursday and taper off by mid to late morning on Friday. Total snow accumulation is expected to be 4 – 8 inches. There is the possibility that the snow changes over and mixes to sleet or freezing rain late Thursday night into early Friday morning.

Temperatures will remain in the upper 20’s throughout the storm. Temperatures will rise into the mid 30’s on Friday.

Winds will be 5 - 10 MPH with gusts up to 15 MPH.

The snow will start off light and fluffy and then change to wet snow as the storm progresses. The heavier snow may cause downed trees and power lines.

Please see the following information from Orange & Rockland in regards to the upcoming snowfall expected between Thursday morning and Friday afternoon.

O&R CREWS READY TO MAKE STORM REPAIRS, RESTORE SERVICE AS NEEDED



PEARL RIVER, NY, Feb.17, 2021 1:30 p.m. --- Orange & Rockland’s (O&R) emergency response team is prepared to repair damage and restore electric service outages that could result from a winter storm that is expected to drop as much as 10 inches of snow on the area beginning Thursday morning and continuing through Friday afternoon.



To supplement its efforts to protect its customers’ electric service, O&R has obtained 100 additional overhead line technicians, nearly doubling the number of line technicians that will be mobilized by O&R to fight the storm.



In addition to the approximately 100 contracted line workers, O&R company and its contractor overhead line crews and tree removal experts will be mobilized as will damage assessment, customer service operations and the wide array of O&R teams that support those functions.



Snow showers are due to begin around 7 a.m. Thursday. Prevailing winds are expected to be 10-20 m.p.h. with gusts up to 30 m.p.h. By early Friday, snow showers may mix with sleet across the O&R service area before changing back to snow. Snow showers are expected to become intermittent Friday morning and linger into mid-afternoon as the storm departs.



The following video describes the typical storm repair and power restoration process: youtu.be/JeGU8ID4_m0



How customer can report an outage

If you experience a power outage, don’t assume that O&R automatically knows about it. You can report it and check to see when your lights will be back on through:



At www.oru.com/ReportOutage from any computer or web-based mobile device.
O&R mobile app from your iPhone, iPad or Android device --- download via Apple Store or Google Play.
Text messaging by texting “OUT” to 69678 (myORU) or
Call 1-877-434-4100.


Be Safe

O&R urges its customers to stay clear of downed electric wires. Don’t go near any downed wire. Assume it is energized and dangerous. Call O&R immediately toll-free at 1-877-434-4100. If the situation requires urgent action, call your local police to divert traffic until an O&R crew arrives.

Important Safety Tips

· Maintain a distance of at least 50 feet from downed wires and anything they are in contact with including puddles of water and fences. Supervise your children so that they are not in the vicinity and keep pets on a leash or otherwise secure.

· If a fallen wire is draped over a car, do not approach the car and make rescue attempts. Remain a safe distance away and try to keep the occupant of the vehicle calm. If possible, emergency personnel should handle the situation.

· Pole-top transformers – those small grey-colored metal drums attached to the wires at the tops of most utility poles – also should be avoided when they have been knocked to the ground.

In addition, O&R personnel have been instructed to follow all safety protocols when responding to emergency calls to keep everyone safe from the coronavirus. O&R asks members of the public to maintain appropriate social distance when they encounter O&R employees working in the field, to provide for mutual safety.

To further help its customers prepare to weather a storm, O&R offers these tips:

· Portable generators pose a serious hazard if used improperly. They should be used and installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions. A wrong connection could feed electricity back through the lines and endanger our repair crews. Never plug a generator into a wall unit, use it indoors or set it up outdoors near open home windows or air-handling vents.

· Have emergency equipment within reach --- portable radio, flashlights, spare batteries, first aid kit, cell phone and important medications. Keep O&R’s toll-free number 1-877-434-4100 near the phone to report power outages.

· Remember: if the base station of your cordless phone plugs into the wall, your phone will be unusable during a power outage.

Orange and Rockland Utilities, Inc. (O&R), a wholly owned subsidiary of Consolidated Edison, Inc., one of the nation’s largest investor-owned energy companies, is a regulated utility. O&R provides electric service to approximately 300,000 customers in southeastern New York State (where its franchise name is Orange & Rockland) and northern New Jersey (where it’s Rockland Electric Company) and natural gas service to approximately 130,000 customers in New York.

***SPORTS HEADLINE: TEAM UPPER SADDLE RIVER BEATS DRUNK DRIVING***

Upper Saddle River Residents we are one day away from Super Bowl LV. The game is won or lost by the TEAM. Just like a football game, making sure everyone gets home safe depends on all of us.
Team Upper Saddle River we need to do our part to make sure everyone gets home safe after the game. Please follow the below tips and let us win the battle against DRUNK DRIVING!!!!!

If your night involves alcohol outside your home, plan for a sober ride home. If you’re hosting a small gathering, take care of your guests.

Designated Drivers

• Take your role as a designated driver seriously — people are relying on you. If you’re attending a small gathering, enjoy the food and non-alcoholic drinks. Refrain from any alcoholic beverages or other drugs.
• Boast about your MVP status on social media using the hashtag #DesignatedDriver. Your positive influence could help keep other sober drivers on the right track.
• Always buckle your seat belt and require any passengers to do the same. Don’t start the car until all passengers’ seat belts are buckled.
• If someone you know has been drinking and tries to drive, take their keys and help them get home safely. Even if they make a fuss in the moment, they’ll thank you later.
