After superstorm Sandy, the Hudson Valley region is now getting hit with another storm. This one promises cold temperatures and snow. Our Alexandra Weishaupt has more on what people are doing to prepare when many are still dealing with outages.
ORANGE COUNTY, N.Y. -- On the heels of superstorm Sandy, the Hudson Valley region braces for another storm. This one is promising cold temperatures and snow.
Crews and trucks are ready at the Department of Public Works in Goshen. The area is expected to get hit with a few inches of heavy, wet snow.
There are still about 4,000 residents without power from Sandy, but now with this storm, folks could be looking at even more outages throughout the area.
"A little more complication in order to fully restore the power and it certainly is inconvenient with the timing but it's a moderate snow storm, it just happens to be the first snow storm, so we'll have to work together in order to overcome this obstacle," said Seamus Leary of the Department of Emergency Services.
Officials are asking people to stay off of the roads during the storm and if you do have to head out, use caution while driving on slick roads.
