Info on Winter Storm Gail - Eric Adams, Brooklyn Borough President

Winter Storm Gail has the potential to bring dangerous conditions to Brooklyn and our entire region through early Thursday morning. A hazardous travel advisory is in effect from Wednesday afternoon through Thursday night. The storm is forecast to bring heavy snow along with strong and potentially damaging wind gusts that will create dangerous blizzard-like conditions. Snow accumulations between eight and 12 inches are anticipated.

My office is coordinating directly with the Mayor's Office, New York City Office of Emergency Management (OEM), and other key citywide agencies to ensure that Brooklynites are aware and prepared, as well as to address any problems that may arise because of Winter Storm Gail. Here is some of the important information you should know and pass on to your family, friends, and neighbors in the coming hours:

  • 911 should only be used in case of emergencies. All other snow-related inquiries and reports should be made to 311; Brooklynites can follow up on those calls by tweeting their issues to @BKBoroHall.
  • New Yorkers are encouraged to sign up for Notify NYC (nyc.gov/notifynyc), the City's free emergency notification system.
  • Through the service, you can receive phone calls, text messages, and/or emails alerts about severe weather events and other emergencies.
  • Use mass transit whenever possible. If you must drive a vehicle, monitor weather and traffic reports for the latest road conditions.
  • The New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) will be activating PlowNYC by dispatching snow plows and salt spreaders across the five boroughs. Plowing progress can be followed at nyc.gov/plownyc.
  • Alternate Side Parking rules are suspended on Wednesday and Thursday for snow operations. Parking meters will remain in effect.
  • Due to inclement weather conditions, expect the possibility of delays on MTA service. For additional information, go to alert.mta.info.
  • New York City Department of Education (DOE) schools are open tomorrow. A decision on possible Thursday closures will be made by tomorrow at 6:00 PM.
  • Outdoor dining establishments must close tomorrow at 2:00 PM, and heaters must be removed from streets. It is expected that they can reopen Thursday evening.
  • COVID-19 testing sites through NYC Health + Hospitals will close tomorrow at 2:00 PM and re-open Thursday at 12:00 PM. Vaccine delivery will continue on schedule.
  • City food delivery will continue, and extra food will be available at DOE pickup points.
  • Any tenant lacking heat and/or hot water should immediately call 311. The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) has crews responding.
  • New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) residents should contact the Customer Contact Center at (718) 707-7771 to report any heat and/or hot water issues, as well as other maintenance concerns.
  • Code Blue protocols are in effect. No one seeking shelter in New York City will be denied. Anyone who sees a homeless individual or family out in the cold should call 311 immediately and an outreach team will be dispatched to assist them.
  • For power-related issues, contact your utility provider:
  • Con Edison 24-hour hotline: 1 (800)75-CONED (1-800-752-6633)
  • National Grid 24-hour hotline: 1 (718) 643-4050
  • Exposure to cold can cause life-threatening health conditions. Avoid serious conditions such as frostbite and hypothermia by keeping warm.
  • Improper use of portable heating equipment can lead to fire or dangerous levels of carbon monoxide. Take precautions to ensure you are heating your home safely. If you lose heat, take measures to trap existing warm air, and safely stay warm until heat returns.

Stay safe and stay warm!
