We have been redeploying assets now from New York City and Long Island, and we're going to move them to the areas where we need the most help. Binghamton needs help in Broome County. We have Utica and Rome, and Poughkeepsie and Beacon are going to be our priority areas. For Poughkeepsie and Beacon, we're going to redeploy an additional 100 National Guard and an additional 100 pieces of equipment to help in Poughkeepsie and Beacon.Meanwhile, here in Hudson, after a snowstorm for the record books, the Department of Public Works is going it alone to clear the streets, and social media—and not-so-social media—is teeming with complaints, outrage, and indignation from people inconvenienced by snow still in the streets less than thirty-six hours after the snow stopped.
