New York State Senator Kenneth P. LaValle issued the following statement today about the response to the aftermath of tropical storm Irene.

“I hope that everyone is now safe, dry and recovering from tropical storm Irene.

While there is a great deal of work ahead of us, I want to thank all of the hard working men and women – police, fire, highway workers, shelter workers and volunteers – all those who helped fellow Long Islanders throughout the storm and the ongoing recovery.

I also want to thank the front line LIPA linemen and women, repair crews and all those doing power restoration work for their round-the-clock, tireless efforts to get power restored.”
