Operation EDITH is a fire-safety program that seeks to encourage the parents of young children to talk to their kids about the importance of fire safety. The cornerstone of the campaign is Exit Drill In The Home, thus the name “EDITH”. The purpose is to educate early elementary school children and their families about the life-saving value of having a fire escape plan from their home. Each year in October, IIANC member agents help spread this important message around their communities during Fire Prevention Week.
Tonight we will be participating in this drill at 7 pm thus do not be alarmed when you hear the sounds of various sirens and the sight of certain vehicles. It is all part of the annual drill.
Mayor Michael Lavorata is happy to announce that the Village of Lindenhurst has recently purchased a Vacuum Cleaning Truck. The Vacuum Truck is used by the Lindenhurst Department of Public Works for cleaning storm water drainage lines, drainage basins, and culverts to ensure effective positive water flow. Mayor Lavorata said, “Storm water vacuum cleaning is a cost effective method of removing the dirt, grit, and other debris that can build up and result in partial or complete interruption of leaching and storm water flow.” The Vacuum Truck uses high pressure water while simultaneously vacuuming back flushed debris and water from the catch basin or manhole into an enclosed and sealed collection body. Pictured here at the vacuum truck is (l-r) Department of Public Works employee Frank Gandiosi, Village Administrator Douglas Madlon, and Mayor Michael Lavorata.
Mayor Lavorata would like to remind all eligible persons that they must file their Veterans, Senior Citizens, Volunteer Fire Fighters, Clergy or Non-Profit tax exemption applications by Monday, October 2, 2017 in order to receive a Village real estate tax exemption for 2018. [Read more…]

9/19/17 – 12:00 AM
UPDATE – 3
No Significant change in Jose since the last update. The center of Jose took a slight north-northwest turn earlier tonight due to a convective burst, but it appears it is back moving toward the north.
A continued northward motion at about the same forward speed is expected during the next day or so while the hurricane remains on the west side of a mid-level ridge over the western Atlantic. All of the guidance keeps the center of Jose offshore of southern New England, but close enough to cause tropical-storm force winds for a portion of the area. Thereafter, a trough currently over central Canada is expected to cause Jose to turn eastward in the 2 to 3 day time frame. The trough is then expected to lift out, leaving Jose drifting to the south and southwest under a blocking ridge forming over the northeastern United States. Little change was made to the previous NHC track.
Hurricane Jose is forecasted to pass well to the east of our area between Tuesday and Wednesday evening. Tropical Storm watches are still in place for the NY, NJ and Connecticut coastlines.
The Lindenhurst Office of Emergency Management continues to monitor Hurricanes Jose and Maria, and will issued updates as deemed necessary.

No significant change in Jose since last updated other than the track has moved a little further to the east.
Hurricane Jose is forecasted to pass well to the east of our area between Tuesday and Wednesday evening. Tropical Storm Watches are still in place for the NY, NJ and Connecticut coastlines.
The Lindenhurst Office of Emergency Management continues to monitor Hurricanes Jose and Maria and Tropical Depression Lee, and will issue updates as deemed necessary.

UPDATE – 1
Hurricane Jose should pass well to the east of our area between Tuesday and Wednesday evening. Tropical Storm watches have been issued for the NY, NJ and Connecticut coastlines.
While the center of Jose is currently forecast to remain offshore, the system could cause some direct impacts from Delaware northward to New England, and any deviation to the left of the current National Hurricane Center forecasted track would increase the likelihood and magnitude of those impacts.
A tropical storm watch is no in effect from the Delaware coast to southeastern Massachusetts. Interests elsewhere along the U.S. East Coast from North Carolina to New England should monitor the progress of Jose through the next several days.
There is a possibility of some minor to moderate coastal flooding possible during the next couple of days. Please see products issued by local National Weather Service forecast offices.
Ocean swells generated by Jose are affecting Bermuda, the Bahamas, and much of the United States East Coast. These swells are likely to cause rough surf and rip current conditions.
Jose will likely produce heavy rain as it passes mid Atlantic coast on Tuesday and Wednesday. Total accumulations of three to five inches are possible over eastern Long Island, southern Rhode Island and southeast Massachusetts, including Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. Any deviation to the left of the current forecasted track, however, could bring heavier and more widespread rainfall to Long Island, New York City and New Jersey. If this deviation were to occur, the risk of urban flash flooding and some river flooding would increase.
The Lindenhurst Office of Emergency Management will continue to monitor Hurricane Jose and provide additional updates as necessary.
