Amman MayorMayor de Blasio today issued a hazardous travel advisory for Saturday, January 23, 2016 through Sunday, January 24, 2016. The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Blizzard Watch for New York City from Saturday morning through Sunday afternoon. This system is forecast to bring heavy snow along with strong and potentially damaging winds, and will create slick and hazardous travel conditions.

 

“From keeping our streets clear to keeping our residents safe and secure, this city is taking every step necessary to prepare for winter weather. In the case of severe snow this week, we will quickly mobilize a major operation to ensure every New Yorker in every neighborhood is prepared and protected,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “From our sanitation workers to our crossing guards to our homeless outreach staff, the hardworking men and women who keep this city safe are getting ready for whatever weather we may face.”

 

“NYC Emergency Management continues to be in constant contact with the National Weather Service to get the latest information about the storm’s track and intensity,” said NYC Emergency Management Commissioner Joseph Esposito. “We are working closely with our partner agencies to prepare for whatever impact this storm may bring to the City.”

 

“The men and women of the Department of Sanitation are ready to keep New York City’s 6,000 miles of roads open during the coming storm,” said Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia. “New York’s Strongest are loading our our salt spreaders, attaching plows to our heavy duty trucks and will be pre-deployed around the city to assure a quick response to whatever this storm brings.”

 

“DOT’s many divisions are ready to mobilize at any time in preparation for pending snow,” saidDOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg. “From pre-treating our overpasses, step streets and East River Bridges to making sure our ferry terminals are passable we are ready to keep New York moving.”
