Yorktown Police Issues Storm Preparedness Tips

YORKTOWN, N.Y.-- Yorktown Police is asking residents to prepare themselves in the event the area experiences severe weather in the coming days.

The department issued the following warnings for residents:

- Make plans to secure your property. Permanent storm shutters offer the best protection for windows.  -A second option is to board up windows with 5/8" marine plywood, cut to fit and ready to install. Tape does not prevent windows from breaking.

  • - Install straps or additional clips to securely fasten your roof to the frame structure. This will reduce roof damage.
  • - Be sure trees and shrubs around your home are well trimmed.
  • - Clear loose and clogged rain gutters and downspouts.
  • - Determine how and where to secure your boat.
  • - Consider building a safe room.

Police said they will be monitoring the storm and will disseminate additional information to residents as it becomes necessary.
