NorthShoreAlert: Thursday Evening Update

Meals ready to go; driving alert.

NorthShoreAlert, the mass communication system, issued the following message Thursday evening. 

  • As explained in last communique, a POD for the distribution of Meals Ready to Eat (MREs) and bottled water will open at the PW train station in morning. There is no charge. It is a drive-through. The entrance is from Main St. It will be open from 7am to 6pm.
  • Some small areas of power have returned to Main St and downtown Manhasset--not to Plandome Hts as earlier stated. As for the remaining areas, LIPA must still contend with the many broken power poles and tree-entangled lines. Some areas may get power sooner. Some may take much longer.
  • The SATs and SAT2s scheduled for this Saturday at both high schools will be rescheduled.
  • Driving Alert: Please STOP before crossing major intersections without traffic lights--the dangers are increasing! Please treat these intersections as 4-way stops!
  • The PW Schreiber Recovery Community Center is open this evening till 11pm with charging stations, warmth, and hot meals from local restaurant.

Thank you Peter Forman. What a difference a solid communication system makes!!! I am sad and nervous and confused, but the constant texts, emails and phone calls coming from North Shore OEM is a blessing and the best use of my tax dollars.
