"We do have extra police crews out there policing the parkways to help any stranded motorists. We brined the roads last night, and we're plowing and salting today," Latimer told CBS2 early Saturday morning. "We're monitoring the power outages. We think, that between Con Edison and NYSEG, that's our greatest concern over the next few hours as the winds get higher."
