Westchester County bracing for Hurricane Isabel
Isabel is still far off but it's not too early to get ready. Monday on the banks of the Hudson River in Ossining, some boat owners decided to beat the rush and get their boats out of harms way just in case.Mike Suhay said he left his boat in the water a few years back as a hurricane swept through, and he later regretted it. So Suhay took the boat home and when Isabel passes, he'll put it back in the Hudson.For more on Hurricane Isabel, log on to the News 12 Westchester Hurricane Isabel Center.Westchester's Deputy Emergency Services Commissioner Anthony Sutton is already pouring over maps to see where Westchester may be most vulnerable; much will depend on where Isabel makes landfall.
