Sandy’s coming …
TO EAST RIVER & HILLMAN HOUSING
FROM: SHULIE WOLLMAN
RE: UPCOMING WEATHER / HURRICANE WARNING
There is a strong likelihood that Hurricane Sandy will approach and affect New York City sometime Monday afternoon/evening or Tuesday. At this point we continue to monitor all Emergency response systems, but they do not know on Friday afternoon how strongly it will hit our area. Watch areas include as far north as Maine and as far west as Ohio. This is potentially a dangerous storm.
Please be advised that we are now preparing for this storm and ask residents to keep their windows closed and locked, and remove all objects from their balconies, including furniture and plants. Please make sure balcony drains are clear of debris. Strong winds are predicted and those winds will cause objects, which are not tied down to become projectiles. Please take this warning seriously and prepare accordingly with ample food and water for 3 days, and other essential items including any necessary medical prescriptions, flashlights, etc. You should also have a working radio with batteries.
Depending on the severity of the storm our main office might have to be closed, but our Maintenance office will remain open for emergency only.
Stay safe and stay indoors.
