Subject: Hurricane Sandy Emergency Response and Relief Information

 

    Hurricane Sandy has obviously taken a devastating toll on the Empire State, impacting literally millions of New Yorkers.   


    But New Yorkers have a long and proud history of pulling together during times of crisis, and a tremendous emergency response and relief effort is now underway in all impacted communities.    


     As emergency responders, public works, and utility personnel continue to move forward with their important work, we encourage all New Yorkers to stay safe and keep informed. 

    Directly below are links to our official government websites providing up-to-the-minute news and information that may be helpful to you and your family in the coming hours and days.  This information includes power and utility updates, transportation updates and key contacts and locations to help you access whatever relief services you may need.     
     


    In addition, for those concerned New Yorkers who wish to support the relief effort in some way, I’ve provided a link below to the American Red Cross.
