Yorktown FD urges residents to get ready for storm
The Yorktown Fire Department is making preparations for the arrival of Hurricane Irene, which could potentially cause flooding in low-lying areas. Deputy Chief Martin McGannon, of the Yorktown Fire Department, says homeowners in flood-prone areas like Greenwood Street should do whatever they can to prepare for the worst."Raise things off the ground," he says. "If possible, get sandbags to prevent water from coming into low windows. Anything that they can do to mitigate the problem would be helpful to us."Yorktown's water pollution plant located on Greenwood Street wasted no time preparing for the storm. Sandbags have already been put in place to protect vital electrical boxes. Town Supervisor Susan Siegal says Yorktown is as prepared as it can be for Hurricane Irene.
