Scarsdale Mayor Declares State of Emergency

Mayor Levitt Flisser issued a declaration at noon today. Residents are told not to drive on or park on village streets.

The Village of Scarsdale is now under an official state of emergency due to Hurricane Sandy.

Mayor Miriam Levitt Flisser signed a State of Emergency Declaration today, which is effective from noon time Monday, until the mayor rescinds the declaration.

"The State of Emergency has been declared due to emergency conditions
resulting from Hurricane Sandy, in order to protect the health, safety and
welfare of the residents of the Village of Scarsdale," the mayor's declaration states.

For all those weather junkies and last-minute preparers, take note. The mayor is also putting a stop to driving and parking on village streets beginning today.

"I further declare that all vehicular travel and parking on any street within
the Village of Scarsdale is hereby prohibited until this State of Emergency has ended," Mayor Flisser stated.

First time I've heard of a driving ban. Sounds like they are expecting a lot of flooding/safety issues...
