Preparing for Hurricane Sandy

On Friday, October 26, 2012, an afternoon press conference was held in front of the Schoharie County office buildings.  Assemblyman Pete Lopez, Mayor Matt Avitabile of Middleburgh, Mayor John Borst of Schoharie, and many other officials were there to address their concerns about the impending arrival of Hurricane Sandy.  Among other topics, details were given about steps being planned to open the Shandaken Tunnel between the Ashokan and Schoharie Reservoirs to lower the water level at the Gilboa Dam.
At the Municpal Building in Middleburgh, Mayor Matt Avitabile discusses with volunteers the weekend house-to-house distribution in the village of a flyer with emergency contact phone numbers and a notification that, in the event it becomes necessary, the village hall will serve as an emergency center on Tuesday, October 30 after the arrival of Hurricane Sandy.
