As the region braces for colder temperatures and heavy snow Monday, the eight Disaster Assistance Service Centers in the Mohawk Valley and North Country are closing at 1 p.m. Monday. The centers will open again on Tuesday, Nov. 12, at 12 p.m.

Slick roads are expected Monday night into Tuesday, and the centers are closing so people avoid traveling in potentially dangerous driving conditions.

"This impending snowstorm could be problematic and cause dangerous conditions across the state, so I urge New Yorkers to be prepared and use caution when driving,” said Gov. Andrew Cuomo. "State agencies are watching the weather system and stand ready to assist our local partners if needed."

The state Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is currently activated to level four status to assist with coordination of state assets in response to the Halloween 2019 storms. The EOC will continue to monitor weather conditions and stay in contact with local areas throughout the duration of the storm. State stockpiles are prepared to deploy assets if needed, including pumps, chainsaws, sandbags and bottled water.

The State Department of Transportation is ready to respond with 3,450 supervisors and operators available. Regional crews are currently preparing for snow and ice, deploying large dump trucks, plow operators and mechanics across the state.

The Mohawk Valley will receive:

  • Six large dump trucks from Central NY
  • Four large dump trucks from Mid-Hudson Valley
  • Six large dump trucks from Southern Tier
