The Town of Bedford has made and continues to make preparations for the blizzard forecast. Heavy snow is anticipated starting this evening and continuing through tomorrow. Road conditions are likely to deteriorate quickly and become very hazardous. We would urge you to avoid travel if possible and to exercise extreme caution if you need to use the roads.
The forecasts we have received indicate a moderate risk of downed wires (and therefore power outages) due to possible heavy winds. Be safe – do not approach any downed wires. To report power outages, downed lines, utility poles or damaged equipment, for NYSEG call 800-572-1131 or online at nyseg.com/outage and for Con Edison 914-921-6359 (electric) and 914-921-3720 (gas).
You also can get further information on the Town’s website at www.bedfordny.gov, which we will be updating as we continue to closely monitor the situation. Chris Burdick, Supervisor
