Theodore Young Community Center Open 24-7

We need Con Edison and the National Guard. For now: a 24-hour community center.

The Theodore Young Community Center on Manhattan Avenue will stay open 24 hours a day until power is restored.

It's warm...a place to relax, there are showers. Phone at the center is: 989-3600.

MY SUGGESTION - CALL IN NATIONAL GUARD to help communities like Greenburgh. There are still 8,700 Greenburgh households without power. That's almost half the town. And, according to Con Ed, many of the 8,700 will still be out of power next week.  Yesterday there were over 9,000 outages  - so power has been restored to around 300 customers. I think that the National Guard should be called in to help local governments like Greenburgh. We need dry ice (CON ED is not giving out dry ice this year). The National Guard could help distribute ice.

If Con Ed won't give out dry ice it would be great if FEMA would reimburse local governments for the dry ice. The National Guard could help oversee a dry ice distribution effort. We could use extra help checking up on seniors, especially the frail elderly who have no power. There may be trees on cars, the National Guard could help remove trees blocking roads. We have CERT volunteers (volunteers who assist in emergencies) who are also locked in their homes. (I'm getting calls from residents who can't get out of their home because trees are blocking access to roads. The National Guard could assist in directing traffic, where traffic lights are not working. Etc.

New Jersey and New York City are in dire straights; people cannot get to work the subways are shut down I do believe the people in charge are prioritizing the restoration of power. Whats hard to understand is why one town would receive help from Con Ed and other towns have not even been assessed - from what I heard no help is even on the way until the weekend for most of Westchester. Hard to understand especially when this can result in more disaster.
