RIVERHEAD - Southold officials say they're prepared for the snowstorm after activating emergency operations yesterday.

Southold Town Supervisor Scott Russell says he's concerned about losing power. He says he's also worried about vulnerable communities that have not been rebuilt since Sandy hit in October.

Russell strongly recommends that residents stay off the roads until the storm has passed.

Riverhead Highway Superintendent George Woodson says that more than two dozen plows have been on duty tending to the roads since early in the morning. But even with that East End residents are worried about their power and food.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) advises Nassau and Suffolk residents to get home early and not to travel unless absolutely necessary.
