Harrison Supervisor Ron Belmont said town offices would close at 2 p.m. today. He said he had spoken with county emergency officials as well as Consolidated Edison and was assured a liaison from the power company would be available throughout the storm and on-hand for Saturday’s clean-up efforts.

The town is preparing to establish an emergency operations center at police headquarters and has been readying its plows, chainsaws and other equipment, Belmont said.

Asked what advice he had for residents, Belmont said, “Stay home, take your cars off the roads so we can clear them and, if you’re old like me, be careful shoveling.”
