Salvation Army Mobilizes Ahead of Winter Storm Nemo

The Salvation Army is mobilizing to serve communities impacted by Winter Storm Nemo, which is expected to bring 1-3 feet of snow, winds, power outages, coastal flooding, massive drifts and white-out conditions to parts of New England throughout tonight and tomorrow. The Salvation Army is ready to provide services such as food, shelter, emotional care, and material assistance.

“Units are on standby in anticipation of power outages and huge snow accumulation,” said Michael Orfitelli, Disaster Services Coordinator for The Salvation Army Eastern Territory. “We are concerned about families and individuals in the Hurricane Sandy impacted regions, and will assess throughout the day how much service we can provide.”

The heaviest snow totals by early Sunday morning are expected in New England from coastal Maine to Connecticut, as well as parts of Upstate New York. Specifically, residents in the Barrier Islands, one of the worst hit areas by Hurricane Sandy, have been encouraged to leave the area.
