Curran: DPW crews working nonstop on Isaias cleanup
Nassau County Executive Laura Curran updated residents Thursday on the Isaias cleanup efforts.
"Our DPW crews have been working non-stop to remove tree limbs, to remove debris from our roads and also…assessing and resolving issues with stormwater basin, open drains making sure that any potential flooding is minimized."
Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency for parts of New York, including on Long Island. He says the emergency declaration will provide local governments with additional cleanup and operational support.
The National Guard is also being deployed in some areas to assist with local recovery efforts.
