Greenburgh Getting Slammed By Irene

GREENBURGH, N.Y. - Greenburgh and Elmsford are getting inundated by high winds and surging rain as Hurricane Irene pelts Westchester County Sunday.

Supervisor Paul Feiner has been sending eblasts to residents about closures, flooding, and streets made impassable by Irene's wrath.

The town had opened up the Theodore Young Community Center as an emergency shelter and some residents are being housed on the second floor. But a nearby brook has jumped its banks and now the ground floor at the center is under water, putting the elevator out of service, according to Feiner

For that reason seniors who cannot climb stairs to the second floor will not have access to the center.

Elmsford has 1,500 residents without power and that number is expected to grow, Feiner believes.

Below is a list of roads closed in Greenburgh as of 9:15 am

Nepperhan Avenue Area

·     Tarrytown Road / Knollwood Road

·     Rt. 9A – Worthington to Whitehouse (Trees and wires)

·     Knollwood Road / Hevelyn Road (Tree on wires)

·     Dobbs Ferry Road / Park Avenue (Tree and wires)

·     South Central / Sentry Place (Tree across roadway)

·     Hillside Avenue / Lawrence Drive

·     Virginia Road / Lawrence Drive

·     Hillside Avenue / Lawrence Drive (Mudslide)

·     Stadium Road / Dobbs Ferry Road

·     West Hartsdale Avenue / North Washington

·     Old Tarrytown / Warren (near park at rear of Maple)

·     Old Kensico (In area of Randolph Road)

·     Manhattan Avenue / I-287 Bridge

·     South Central Avenue / West Hartsdale (Four Corners)

·     Hillside Avenue / Lawrence Drive

Feiner also said he had  been in phone contact with United States Congress member Nita Lowey and County Executive Rob Astorino. They offered to be of help.

Lowey indicated that a number of House of Representatives members want to cut reimbursements to local governments for emergency relief efforts. She believes that the funding is important and will lobby the Congress to continue the funding. A storm like this results in significant overtime expenses to all local governments, he said.

Check back for updates as they become available.
