THE BRONX - Mayor Michael Bloomberg says he fears weakened trees and branches from Superstorm Sandy may come down during the approaching nor'easter expected to make landfall Wednesday.
He is asking residents of low-lying waterfront areas to seek higher ground tomorrow and assuring residents that extra NYPD officers will be stationed at those areas.
All city parks, playgrounds and beaches will be closed from 12 p.m. tomorrow until 12 p.m. Thursday. People without power are urged to go spend the night at the shelter at Lehman College located at 250 Bedford Park Blvd.
Residents are also urged to clear Sandy debris from homes and take photos and video for insurance purposes. Gov. Andrew Cuomo is asking insurers to waive on-site inspections.
