Woodbury officials at the EOC [Emergency Operations Center] are monitoring the developments of Storm Sandy.

  • Participating in statewide conference calls and gathering data.
  • Departments have completed their pre-storm checklists.
  • We have held several Emergency Planning Committee Meetings in the past two days.

We are seeing increased winds. Minor trees and limbs are down. 
Some wires down. Mostly cable and telephone lines downed at this time.
No power outages reported at this time. [Editor's Note: That has since changed since the press release was written.]

Emergency Operations Center will be opened and the firehouse. Available for information and other needs. 

If it is necessary to open a shelter, we will notify the state and it will be listed on 211, the town webpage, updated with our CodeRed messages and we will provide a future press release with shelter details as it is needed.

Weather, at this time, is warm. We are encouraging residents, that if they lose power to try to stay home.

We are asking residents to stay off the roads as much as possible and watch for dangerous situations such as flooding, trees and downed wires.

We will be holding another Emergency Management Meeting, Tuesday morning at the ESB to meet and discuss further events.

The Trick or Trunk Event is still scheduled for Wednesday at the Hollow. Additional press releases will follow regarding this event.
