There were few power outages in Putnam County by mid-afternoon. NYSEG is staffed for the storm with 79 contractor crews, 29 wire guards, 34 tree crews, 20 damage assessment crews and 15 internal crews. Metro-North temporarily suspended service yesterday afternoon due to snow and winds.
Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell declared a state of emergency. Incident Command Structure identified critical facilities, including the site where Putnam County keeps COVID-19 vaccines to be able to keep them refrigerated. Odell noted though that the local health department has gotten so few vaccines from the state as it is, they're not going to let a single dose go to waste.
Hazard crews have been out on the roads since Sunday night. They will continue to be out after the storm, working with the local highway crews throughout the county.
