As Snow Storm Blows In on Tuesday: NYC Public Schools to Go Remote and ASP Suspended
By Yehudit Garmaise
As a result of tomorrow’s incoming snow, New York City public school students will learn at home and Alternate Side Parking will be suspended on Tuesday, Feb. 13.
After tonight’s showers turn to snowflakes by early Tuesday morning, five to eight inches of snow could blanket the streets of New York City, said the New York City Emergency Management (NYCEM.)
In addition to the significant accumulation of snowfall, winds that travel at 40 mph are expected, said the NYCEM, which set a Winter Storm Watch.
To prepare for a few safe and cozy winter days and nights inside, Gov. Kathy Hochul advised New Yorkers to stock up on food, medications, baby supplies, and other essentials before the snow starts to come down at 4am Tuesday.
Residents should also be careful when using alternative heat sources, such as space heaters, the governor added.
“Make sure to check in on their neighbors, who might be elderly or alone,” she said.
Only New York City drivers who consider their trips “absolutely necessary,” should head out to the roads.
“Avoid unnecessary travel, and take it very slowly if you must drive,” the governor stressed.
