ROOSEVELT - With another snowstorm in the forecast for tonight into tomorrow, towns across Long Island are gearing up for what could be a messy morning commute.
Town of Hempstead officials say they have thousands of tons of salt prepared and more than 200 snow vehicles and workers on standby.
In Roosevelt, work crews spent the day laying down salt in anticipation of the storm that is expected to develop overnight and dump 2-5 inches of snow by tomorrow morning.
"We want to get a nice layer of salt on before the snow starts so it doesn't adhere to pavement," says Hempstead Town Highway Commissioner Tom Toscano.
Town officials are reminding drivers to park their cars off the streets to allow snowplows to pass.
