Supervisor Ed Romaine has issued a State of Emergency in the Town of Brookhaven effective 12:00 noon today, March 21. Vehicles that are parked in the street should be moved to driveways or they could be subject to towing at the owner’s expense. Any abandoned vehicles obstructing access for snowplows and emergency vehicles may also be removed by the Town. Residents are urged to stay off the roads unless there is an emergency or if it is absolutely essential to travel. The County of Suffolk has also declared a State of Emergency.
Driving conditions are expected to be extremely hazardous due to the expected heavy snow accumulation. Town snow removal crews will be working throughout the day and night to clear the roads until all are safe and passable.
Residents should call 451-TOWN to report snow-related issues. Call 911 for police, fire and ambulance emergencies only. To report a power outage or downed wires, call PSEG at 800-490-0075 or go to www.psegliny.com to file a report online.
