Christopher Rodriguez, of Yonkers, says he has been following the reports of severe weather and he's ready for the worst.
"This is the time that you should be out there trying, especially if there's gonna be a storm. You should be trying to get your stuff together," he says. "Nobody wants to go out, I don't want to go out."
