OYSTER BAY — Nassau officials are bracing for the second significant winter storm to hit Long Island within the last five days. The preparations come as crews scramble to restore power to about a hundred customers still without it after last Friday's storm.

“Yes, we're still cleaning up from the last storm, but we're ready to pounce on this one and get ahead of it," Nassau County Executive Laura Curran said.

Hempstead Supervisor Laura Gillen says they have 30,000 tons of salt on hand and highway department workers will be out salting and plowing roads.

"The town will work closely without utilities to restore power as quickly as possible," Gillen said.

Supervisor Gillen stresses the lingering effects from the nor'easter that just hit Friday, leaving trees and tree branches weakened.

"Our crews have been working diligently to remove trees and debris from our roadways," Gillen said.

Officials ask drivers to stay off the roads tomorrow as they are expecting slippery conditions.
