Astorino: Westchester 'dodged a bullet' with winter storm
Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino said during a news conference Tuesday that "we dodged a bullet" when it came to the winter storm that bore down on the East Coast.
The county executive said it could have been a lot worse.
"It really didn't affect power. At one point, we had at most 200 outages," he said.
Astorino stressed the importance of keeping off the streets so salters and plows could clear them for Wednesday morning.
"Black ice is a worry because it is going to be freezing, and we do have that mixture still of snow and ice at times so stay off the roads if you can," he said.
Astorino said Bee-Line bus service would be in operation on Wednesday starting at 4 a.m. While no flights departed from the Westchester County Airport during the storm, he said airlines could make a decision on Tuesday evening on whether they want to land there depending on the conditions.
