NorthShoreAlert: Update on Power, Schools, Coat Drive

Hurricane Recovery in Port Washington.

NorthShoreAlert, the mass notification system, issued this message Sunday at 10:26 a.m. Sign up for messages at NorthShoreAlert.org.

This is a Sunday morning Sandy Recovery Update
-LIPA has restored portions, I repeat portions, of almost all of the villages and unincorporated areas. LIPA has restored 600,000 customers with 450,000 remaining. They expect to restore another 100,000 today and expect 90% restoration by this Wednesday. Restoration is, in part, dependent on damage between you and the substation, so it isn’t possible to give further clarity. 
-Please remember that clocks were to be set back 1 hr last night.
-All elementary schools and PW Schreiber now have power. Manhasset is functioning on generator. The Superintendents will advise later if they will open tomorrow. There are many factors involved.
-The PWMOEM Recovery Center at the Landmark on Main St, will be open all day for warmth, meals, recharging, the Giants game, and socializing. It is across from the PW Library; about 1.4 mile past Louie’s restaurant.
     Activities today, among others:
     12pm-3pm—Acupuncture/Stress Relief
     1pm—Bingo for Seniors
     3pm—Science Fun—make a volcano (ages 3-8)
     3pm—Family-friendly Belly dancing class
     5pm—Children’s movie
     7pm—Family/Teen Movie
-If you can drop off coats for a coat drive, that would be appreciated as well.
