update: FLOOD/street closoing/evacuation
Release Date: April 16, 2007

UPDATE: I received the following update from the Village of Elmsford. Last night the town kept the multipurpose center open for residents who were flooded. However, all the residents of 180 East Hartsdale Ave and 170 Easts Hartsdale Ave who were evacuated found other accomodations (including the Marriott) so we closed the multipurpose center down around 2 AM. There is flooding at the basement of 160 East Hartsdale Ave but the building was not evacuated. There is extensive flooding in the basements of the stores on E Hartsdale Ave--many stores will not be open today.
Additional streets that are  partially or totally closed or that have restricted acccess: Beaver Hill, Warehouse Lane, Saw Mill River Road, S Central Ave (parts), part of Old Tarrytown Road-between Hillside and Manhattan, part of Sprain/South Sprain, Lawrence, Fairview Park.
A special thank you to the fire departments for pumping people's basements and the Greenburgh Police and Public Works dept for working so hard to help those families who have experienced problems. PAUL FEINER

A State of Emergency has been declared in the Village of Elmsford, Westchester County, New York for a period of time beginning at 12:00 am on April 16, 2007 and continuing in effect for a period not to exceed five (5) days.

The State of Emergency has been declared due to emergency conditions produced by large amounts of rain fall over the past 24 hours causing serious flooding of the Saw Mill River throughout the Village of Elmsford and serious flooding of various low lying areas of the Village of Elmsford and the threat of additional rain fall over the next 24 to 72 hours.

Due to the flooding conditions the following street closings will be in effect to all traffic until such time as the areas are deemed safe for passage:

287 Exit 2 Westbound Elmsford
Rte 9A North Bound at 287
Rte 119 (Main Street) West Bound at 9A
Rte 119 (Main Street) East Bound at 287
Frontage Street past 287 East Bound Ramp
White Plains Avenue at 9A
White Plains Avenue at North Lawn
Vreeland Avenue from Rte 119
Havens Street from Rte. 9A
Valley Avenue from Rte. 119 to Parkway Plaza

As water recedes and areas become safe for vehicular traffic they will be retuned to full service.
