With a winter storm warning in effect, Greenport Village officals are urging residents to bunker down and stay safe.
According to a hazardous weather outlook issued Wednesday by the village, a coastal flood warning is in effect from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, with a wind advisory in effect from 4 p.m. Wednesday through 6 p.m. Thursday, officials said.
The winter storm warning is in effect through 1 p.m. Friday, with snow accumulations expected to reach up to ten inches.
A coastal flood watch remains in effect during high tide periods through Thursday morning.
"Please make sure you have made emergency arrangements," said Greenport Village Mayor David Nyce. "Please move vehicles off the streets. Stay safe and look in on elderly or infirm neighbors."
Nyce urged residents to go to the village's website for emergency numbers.
Residents are also asked to follow snow removal guidelines to keep family, neighbors and crews safe.
Snow removal guidelines indicate that all-night parking is prohibited on any road or street when a snowfall in the amount of two inches or more is predicted.
In addition, snow is to be removed from all residential and commercial sidewalks within 24 hours after a snowfall.
