The Village of Greenwood Lake is expecting anywhere between 12-18 inches of snow over the next couple days. It appears as though the storm will start overnight tonight (Tuesday) and go right through Wednesday night. Thankfully power has been restored in our area just in time for another potential power outage scenario. Below are some things for everyone to consider.
-Please, do not go to work unless you absolutely have to.
-Prepare your home with flashlights, water, food and any other items you might deem essential during a potential power outage
-DO NOT park vehicles on the street. Absolutely NO parking on Windermere Avenue during the storm.
-If you have an emergency, please call Village Police at 845-477-9211.
-If you have a non-emergency related issue, you may call me on my cell: 845-283-7993 or email me at
-Village Hall main conference room will remain OPEN during the entirety of the storm. If we lose power, it will remain open until everyone is back with power. Village hall runs on a generator when we lose power so it can be used to charge your phone, use our phones there, or even sleep there if necessary (We can provide cots, you will need your own blankets).
-If we sustain large scale power outages, or have many residents seeking refuge, the Greenwood Lake Elks Lodge located on Chestnut Street will become available as an emergency shelter.
There are several ways customers can report outages and check service restoration status:
Go to the O&R website ( from any computer or web-enabled mobile device;
Text “OUT” to 69678 (myORU); or
Call Customer Assistance at 1-877-434-4100
Stay tuned for any further necessary updates.
