Hurricane Warning in effect for Northern Westchester

A Hurricane Warning has been issued for Northern Westchester, which includes the Town of Bedford. By now, all residents should have a family emergency plan. Once a disaster has struck is the wrong time to learn that you, your family, or friends are not prepared. Preparing personal and family disaster kits in advance helps make sure that you have what you need, and don’t get caught off guard. One component of a family emergency plan is to have adequate supplies on hand in the event that you are stranded in your home or are forced to evacuate. This should be accomplished prior to 8pm today since conditions are forecast to begin deteriorating by that time.

— non-perishable packaged or canned food / juices
— foods for infants or the elderly
