New York State Electric and Gas made storm preparations throughout the region Thursday, including sending out reminders for safety should people lose power.
▶ Keep flashlights, a battery-powered radio or TV and fresh batteries handy.
▶ Have at least one telephone that is not dependent on electricity, as cordless phones won’t work during a power interruption.
▶ Keep a supply of nonperishable food and bottled water on hand.
▶ Make sure cellphone batteries are fully charged.
