NorthShoreAlert: Update on Decreasing Temperatures, Elderly Neighbors, Power

A Monday evening update.

NorthShoreAlert, the mass communication system for the Port Washington-Manhasset peninsula, issued the following message on Monday at 5:15 p.m. Sign up for alerts at NorthShoreAlert.org.

  • Voting. Even though we have been unable to reach the Board of Elections today, based on the info we have collected it seems that voting will occur at originally planned locations tomorrow. [Editor's note: Supervisor Jon Kaiman says he anticipates that all polling places will be open.]
  • The temperature tonight is expected to drop to 34 degrees and tomorrow to 37 degrees. If you do not have heat in your home, please seriously consider going to a shelter or staying with friends. The shelter at Manhasset High School is now closed. The closest shelter is Nassau Community College in Garden City. 
  • Please check on elderly or handicapped neighbors who may not be receiving these messages. You may be their only lifeline.
  • The winds are now expected to be from 25 to 35 mph on Wed and Wed evening as a smaller storm blows in.
  • Power continues to spread throughout the peninsula with sporadic, yet increasing reports from the Manhasset Villages and many areas in Port Washington. We are still hopeful that much more power will be on tomorrow and next day, as promised by LIPA. Their crews have been seen throughout the peninsula today.
  • Lastly, we are continuing these calls by phone and text for the benefit of the many residents who still don’t have full communications restored.
