Somers Monday Update: Dry Ice, Power Restoration

Somers Supervisor Mary Beth Murphy sends a Monday morning update on the storm's aftermath.

Editor's Note: The following information was provided by the Somers Supervisor Mary Beth Murphy. 

Dry ice will be available at the Somers Police Station in Van Tassel Park at 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. today.

We continue to pressure NYSEG to get the power on ASAP. Utility poles are owned and replaced by the utility. NYSEG assures us that there is no truth to the rumor that poles are not available. 

The shelter at the Heritage Hills Activity Center remains open for all residents. St. Luke’s Church is serving soup and community dinner 5 to 7 p.m. and is available to store refrigerated medications and is an optimum wifi hot spot. The Somers library has power.

Work crews in town are from all over the country working with little food and sleep. Please offer them a warm drink, a bite to eat and a kind word if you can.

Election Day is tomorrow, Tuesday, Nov. 6. Power has been restored to all polling places. Everyone should report to their usual local polling place.

Someone in my office told me that if you take pictures of your fridge/freezer with thawed out/bad food, FEMA will reimburse. Has anyone heard of this?

I'd put a bullet in my head before I called the govt to help me. What happened to this country? Cn't anyone do anything for themselves. This is why my grandpa and dad and uncles taught us all how to hunt, trap, fish, woodcraft etc. Get some guns, ammo and a solar generator. Stock up on non persihables. Stop watching Idol and Jersey shore and the View and learn to take care of yourselves or die. It's your call.
