Hurricane Irene Advisory # 10

Good evening
All rivers and streams have crested. The Upper Esopus crested 12' above flood stage, the Lower Esopus at 7' above at Chandler Drive and 5 ' above at Mt Marion, the Rondout at 9' above and the Wallkill at 6' above flood stage.
Full focus has turned to recovery.
All Highway Superintendents and Town Supervisor have been asked to assist with damage assessments. PDAs will commence with evidence supported by damage assessments.
At 9 PM, Central Hudson customers and 3,563 NSEG customers are without power
Dry ice and water are available from Central Hudson at Lake Katrine and the Rosendale Recreation Center. NYSEG is distributing dry ice at the Margaretville firehouse for their Shandaken customers .
Shelters are available at the Belleayre Ski Center, the Senior Residence at Benedictine Hospital and the Napanoch firehouse.
Today 20 mutual aid fire units from as far away as Erie County assisted Ulster County Fire Departments with pump outs and opening roads
The ban on driving was lifted at 6 PM this date.
Extreme caution must still be used - do not drive in flooded roadways. Far too many rescuers have been put at unnecessary risk because people continue to drive in flood waters.
Do not go near downed power lines.
Upon returning to a flooded home, ensure structural integrity, the absence of gas buildup (propane and/or natural), and potentially still energized utilities.
Throw away all contaminated food and medications.
Well water should be tested prior to drinking.
