WPCNR WEATHER SCOOP. From White Plains City Hall. October 28, 2012:
The City of White Plains has begun to take preventive actions designed to decrease the potential for and severity of flooding. This includes cleaning out storm drains and catch basins.
Residents are being asked to assist in this effort by not piling leaves in or near the street. Leaves will likely clog vital storm drains in adverse weather, which may lead to flooding.
