Crews cut trees, repair lines, plow roads as nor’easter wallops Rockland

Posted: Updated:
NEW CITY -

News 12’s Lisa Reyes was at the Rockland County Highway Department’s salt yard in New City as crews were out battling the elements.

The specially treated salt there was used to treat hilly areas through the county and was spread on roads before the snow started falling.

The highway superintendent told News 12 that dozens of crews were working throughout the county to clear the roads.

There was concern that the heaviness of Wednesday’s wet snow could pile up on trees and power lines and lead to more outages.

Some crews were out cutting and removing fallen trees, while other crews were trying to fix downed wires and plowing the roads.

Lisa Reyes was in Mount Vernon reporting on the near whiteout conditions.
