[ARCHIVED] AN IMPORTANT SAFETY UPDATE FROM LEGISLATOR GAYLOR: HURRICANE SEASON IS HERE!



Hurricane Cover


Hurricane season for Nassau County began on June 1st and continues through November 30th.   The best way to protect your family and pets during a major storm or emergency is to be prepared ahead of time. 


Superstorm Sandy was the worst natural disaster to hit Long Island in 75 years. Not since the infamous “Long Island Express” Hurricane of 1938 has our region endured such widespread devastation from a weather event. Ninety percent of Long Islanders lost electricity. Many residents went weeks with no power. Many were left homeless and lives were uprooted. Life in Nassau County was forever changed for thousands residing in our coastal communities.


Nassau County Legislator C. William Gaylor III reminds you that although we cannot prevent hurricanes, we can certainly prepare for them by creating an emergency plan ahead of time for you and your family that will help you to stay organized and safe.
