Long Island towns prep for 1st significant snowfall of the season
Oyster Bay has their salt and sand ready at the town's yard in Syosset as Long Island braces for the first snowfall of the season.
Long Islanders like Eileen Dowd also rushed to supermarkets to make sure they had the necessities they needed.
"I'm definitely not going out in the morning because it's going to be bad," Dowd says.
Products like ice melt, shovels and sleds were also being sold at Trio Hardware.
Co-owner Ritsa Kirschner says a lot of residents needed to stock up because supply problems made some items hard to find.
Children in the Syosset Central School District and several neighboring districts will not have to go to school Friday because of the snow.
Instead, remote classes will be held when the snow is coming down.
Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter is warning drivers to be careful as slippery roads are expected.
Oyster Bay Supervisor Joseph Saladino is also asking residents to ensure there is enough room for plow trucks.
He says plows will hit the road when there are about two inches of snow on the ground.
There are also going to be pre-treating on the roads with salt to prevent hiding ahead of the snow.
