Town of Ramapo Hurricane Sandy Update 2

Hurricane Sandy is expected to have an unprecedented impact on the Town of Ramapo starting Sunday, October 28, and continuing for possibly 3 to 4 days thereafter.

The brunt of the storm is expected to be from 6am Monday to 6pm Tuesday. Our area could experience sustained winds of 40-60mph for 24-36 hours; with wind gusts of up to 80mph.

Police, Fire, and Emergency Medical Services will only respond to emergencies during this event. Please refrain from calling for non-emergencies during this time.

Orange & Rockland will not be able to perform repairs until the wind falls below 40mph - which may not be until Wednesday, October 31. Residents could be without power for 4-7 days.

We advise our residents to stay home and hunker down.
