Hochul: 1,700 plows ready to go in NY state
Gov. Kathy Hochul was in Westchester County Thursday morning to give an update on the state’s storm prep.
She said roads were being pretreated.
She said the Department of Transportation will be working nonstop to get the roads cleared once the snow begins.
More than 1,700 large and medium plows will be out.
The Commissioner of the New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services, Jackie Bray, is urging people to work remotely if they can.
"The real hazard here is [Friday] morning’s commute, and so as New Yorkers, we know how to keep each other safe. Part of that is being prepared and making a plan tonight to avoid driving if you can during [Friday] morning’s rush hour," said Bray.
If you do head out, drive slowly.
Gov. Hochul says they’re not expecting any major power outages.
