Supplies of gasoline are on their way

Orange County Executive Edward A. Diana made the following statement today: 

As we all know, Hurricane Sandy brought unprecedented devastation to many of our fellow citizens in the New York metropolitan area.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families during this time.    

Orange County stands ready to help the municipalities hardest hit any way possible, and we have already sent emergency personnel and resources to Nassau County as part of our mutual aid agreements. 

Our County was also impacted by the storm, as we still have many friends and neighbors without electricity.  The utility companies that service our region are working diligently to get those areas of Orange County back on-line as soon as possible, and we thank those affected for their patience and cooperation.     

We are also aware of an interruption of gas delivery to our region due to the storm.  I have spoken to Governor Cuomo and to the New York State Office of Emergency Management, as well as our federal partners, Senator Gillibrand, Congresswoman Hayworth, Senator Schumer and U.S. Coast Guard, in order to ascertain their help on this important matter. 

Supplies of gasoline are on their way to our region, yet residents should know the process will take time.  As we work on finding temporary relief, I advise residents to be prudent with their supply and limit any unnecessary travel.  I also ask for your continued cooperation and patience during these difficult times by showing mutual respect for one another.
