A message from the Village of Rye Brook: As the most severe impacts of Hurricane Sandy have passed, there are many roads that are blocked by down trees and wires causing hazardous road conditions. Residents are asked not to travel today unless absolutely necessary and to stay away from down wires, always assume they are live and stay away from fallen or hanging branches.
Currently 75% of the village is without power and restoration efforts are underway, but will take time to complete as the primary focus is to clear major roadways that are blocked. If you are without power, you should notify Con Edison at 1-800-75 CONED even if your neighbor has done so. An emergency shelter is open at the Port Chester Senior High School.
Regular Tuesday sanitation pick-up is cancelled for today.
In the event of an emergency, dial 911 to reach the Rye Brook Police Department.
