Dry Ice Distribution to Continue Wednesday

Nearly all of Yorktown is still without power. Dry ice will be available at 3:15 p.m. in the CVS parking lot of the Triangle Shopping Center.

The town of Yorktown and New York State Electric and Gas (NYSEG) will be distributing dry ice on Oct. 31 at 3:15 p.m. in the CVS parking lot of the Triangle Shopping Center. 

The supply is limited and it is requested that only people who really are in need should seek the ice, Yorktown officials said. 

"It is still extremely dangerous on the roadways due to fallen trees, electrical wires and traffic lights that are out," Yorktown police said in a statement Wednesday morning. "Residents are urged to please remain in their homes unless it is very necessary that they go out."

Do we need to bring anything to carry the dry ice in? And is this available for Con Ed customers as well? I see the articles says it is NYSEG and the town doing it.

Bill, they aren't asking for proof and it probably can't hurt to bring a container. Let us know how it goes!

I didn't bother going as i figured it would be futile unless I wanted to spend a few hours there. I saw a tweet (from Greg Ball, not sure why he is involved) at around 2:30 saying they had already run out.
