DPW crews across Westchester are finalizing their preparations as the remnants of Ida move our direction.
Remnants of Henri overwhelmed parts of the Hudson Valley last week, and people in Mamaroneck are preparing for round two.
Howard Avenue along the Mamaroneck River saw some flooding from last week's storm.
Village officials tell News 12 they are used to it and are prepared for anything.
Officials have lowered the Larchmont Reservoir levels, cleaned out catch basins, pre-positioned barricades and readied pumps and generators.
"We've done all the preparations that we usually do. Now, we leave it up to nature, and hopefully, we don't get hit too hard," says Mamaroneck Mayor Tom Murphy.
During Henri, Mamaroneck officials pumped six people's basements and inspected 50 homes to make sure they were safe to return to -- they are hoping to avoid that on Wednesday.
