The Village of Rye Brook urges residents to take steps to prepare for heavy rain, storm surge, and strong winds. Make sure your emergency supply kits and Go Bags are stocked and ready to go with supplies like water, non-perishable food, a first aid kit, flashlights, a battery-operated radio, and extra batteries.

The Rye Brook Department of Public Works will be clearing catch basins and picking up leaves on Saturday, October 27, 2012 and Sunday, October 28.  Residents are asked to not put leaves into the street and to bring in any lawn ornaments, plants and unsecured items.

Residents who live along the Blind Brook are asked to not throw leaves, branches or debris into the brook as that will cause blockages and down stream flooding.
