BEDFORD, N.Y.-- A State of Emergency is still in effect in Bedford Tuesday and will remain so until rescinded, Bedford Police said.
Police advise residents that most roads in town are impassable after the storm due to downed wires and trees.
All roads on Tuesday were closed to non-essential travel, according to police. Town work crews will be working to clear roadways, police said, but the effort will take time as resources are spread thin.
"Once again, we understand the frustration that the people of the Town of Bedford may be feeling. Everyone is working hard to restore power and open the roadways as soon as possible," said a Bedford Police alert sent out at 6 a.m. Tuesday.
Bedford police encourage residents to call 911 if in need of emergency assistance but to refrain from contacting the police department with inquires about restoration of power or specific road closures.
For general information, residents can call United Way's helpline at 211, police said. Police also said that the Bedford Townhouse will remain closed on Tuesday.
