Dear Flower Hill Residents,

This is the August 9th Village of Flower Hill storm recovery update. I am excited to report that we are seeing more power restorations throughout the Village and more power crews entering our area. Some crews are doing assessments to prepare for the actual restoration work so please do not get frustrated if crews come in and leave the area.

Also, We Care Tree Service is working its way through the Village to take limbs and branches left at the curb.

The fact is that too many outages remain and some restorations times are being pushed back until Tuesday. I continue to be in constant communication with PSEG over this continued failure and to provide you with updates. Given this track record of delays I continue to ask residents to prepare for a few more days without power.

-Please assist any crews that come into the neighborhood in any way possible many of them are from out of state and may be unfamiliar with the area. If you need to engage them please wear a mask and maintain a social distance of 6 feet.

-If you get an update from PSEG that your power has been restored and it has not been please report it to them at 800-490-0075 immediately.

-Do not approach any downed wires, all downed wires should be treated as live.

-If you are running a generator please also check that your Carbon Monoxide detectors are operating, as portable and natural gas generators have the potential to cause carbon monoxide issues.

-PSEG will once again have 250 Willis Ave. in Roslyn Heights open for ice and water

-We will have Village Hall available for powering up this afternoon from 1-4pm thanks to several Trustees and volunteers from the Flower Hill Volunteer Corp.

Please continue to check in on one another and neighbors that might need additional assistance.

Thank you and please stay safe!
