“If you have someplace else to go, you should go there”. It is anticipated that the dunes along Asharoken Avenue will breach during the storm, causing a closure of Asharoken Avenue. Depending upon how serious the breaches are, Asharoken Avenue could be closed temporarily or longer, if the road is damaged.
Please consider helping your neighbors during this emergency.
For those residents that have no other place to go, the Red Cross has established Walt Whitman High School as a shelter. Persons unable to get there on their own, can get a Town Bus at the Town’s Asharoken Beach parking lot and the First Presbyterian Church in Northport from 12 noon to 6:00 PM, Saturday.
