At 2pm Shandaken Supervisor, Rob Stanley, broadcast a message on Town Community Station-Channel 23 including much of the information from previous posts and up to date concerns. This will play continuously while weatherthreats persist. Work will continue while weather permits, as most of highway personnel are also emergency responders and may be needed if situations develop. Below is the message read:

Sept. 4, 2011

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Following the devastating effects of Tropical Storm Irene the Town has had several failures of Infrastructure. We are still under a State of Emergency while recovery efforts continue. We have been able, at least temporarily, to restore most traffic infrastructure and power to most of the Town. Efforts are continuing, but may be suspended due to incoming weather. Our Emergency responders have been working tirelessly to assist anyone in any way. Know that your Fire House is your local access point for information and supplies. Belleayre Mountain is, and will continue to be, available as an emergency shelter as well as a supply center. If you feel that you or your home may be in jeopardy, we advise that you utilize their facility. It is better to err on the side of caution.

Know that emergency inspections of structures are continuing. If your home has a certificate on it with either “Restricted Use” or “Unsafe” listed, please take notice of the reasons and call our zoning officer, 688-5008, for assistance in how to address your situation. We are not evicting anyone from their homes, just advising them of threats to their structure that should be addressed. If you are planning a repair, please call the zoning office to get the needed permit. Also note that FEMA officials are located at Belleayre Mountain’s lower lodge from 8am-8pm seven days a week to assist you in the processes and funding assistance. We ask that you work with those officials before proceeding with any repair plans to ensure your availability to possible funding.

Know that we are at this time coordinating simultaneous efforts to restore roads and streams. We have large equipment located in the Stony Clove Creek in Phoenicia and ask that locals not travel Rte. 214 from Main St. to Tremper Ave. please detour to through Church and Romer Streets so we can expedite necessary work. Work will continue as weather permits. We do have concerns about incoming weather as several dikes have been breached on Rte. 42, at the Town Hall, Plank Road and Rte. 212. The Winnisook Dam HAS NOT been breached. There is erosion damage and we have been able, with the assistance of the Winnisook Association, to lower the level of the lake as a precautionary measure. There is no imminent threat of collapse, but at this juncture, we all feel it is best to, again, err on the side of caution. We have only been able to TEMPORARILY repair some roads and the stream channel has changed in several locations. These roads and stream channel changes may create flooding situations where none existed before. Again, we are doing our best to address these situations, but we are also still trying to get to people that are still unable to use vehicular access to their properties where we are providing supplies on foot.

Lastly, I, the Rest of the Town Board and all the emergency crews that have responded are there to assist you in any capacity we can. This was not a localized event for our community this event has devastated the entirety of the Town of Shandaken. The destruction entails a sixteen mile swath from Oliverea through Mt. Tremper, only the hamlet of Highmount of our twelve hamlets was fairly unscathed.  If you, or someone you know, in the Town of Shandaken needs assistance, we have a civilian response team that has been coordinated by the Phoenicia Rotary, to help clean out your home and property. We have everything you may need and if we don’t, we will get it to you as soon as we possibly can. The Phone Number for Information is (845) 688- 7315. That is also our Emergency Command Center if someone has an emergency that needs addressed. Know that as much as we have been physically torn apart, we are not spiritually broken. We’ve had tough times before and this community has responded as it has in the past. Before any other political entities were involved we had people on the ground here assisting each other throughout the Town. There will be a time and place to illustrate the efforts that have been put forth and we do appreciate the assistance that has arrived, no matter the timing. Please know that there are still people without power or access to this broadcast, please get the word to them. This is the time where there are no strangers, check on your neighbor, see if they need supplies. I know we have many proud citizens out there and many that will need these supplies, please take advantage of these while we have this help. I cannot stress enough that you get to Belleayre if you feel threatened by approaching weather or to take advantage of FEMA officials while they are housed in our municipality. Donations may be arranged through Belleayre Mountain, the Phoenicia Rotary or the Phoenicia United Methodist church. The Zen Monastery in Mt. Tremper is also available for Shelter and meals. We are not through this yet and don’t anticipate it ending in the immediate future while these threats continue. Please be safe, please look after each other and continue the good efforts that we’ve given thus far.

Robert A. Stanley, Supervisor-Town of Shandaken

We have concerns that on coming storm activity has the possibility of reversing all forward progress of utility and transportation networks. Concerns are that the stream has adjusted course and our preliminary focus has been restoration of transportion to allow access to the entire town. Stream restoration has begun in areas, but there are areas we may not reach before the storms. Again, be advised to go to Belleayre if you have the slightest concern about flooding. Shuttle service is available.

Civilian teams are working tirelessly to help residence with cleaning and other duties. If you or someone you know needs assistance, please stop by the CERT HQ on Main St. Phoenicia or the Emergency Command Post in the Phoenicia Firehouse.

 3:00pm – Thurs., Sept. 1 – The Town of SHandaken continues to be under a State of Emergency! Town, County and State officials are working diligently to restore power and services to the entire Town. NYSEG crews have restored power from Pine Hill to the Hamlet of Shandaken on Rte. 42 & 28. They are working to swing lines over the washout near the “portal” (Schoharie Tunnel). We are cautious of power restoration as lines are energized and power may be ON in several houses that have suffered damage and we have to beware of possible structural fires developing in these homes.

Highway crews are coordinating efforts in the Oliverea Valley where several bridges are out and we are still only able to access some homes on foot. Fire and Police patrols have done door to door checks. No fatalities reported. Medical, Food and water supplies are being provided through local Fire Departments.

State inspectors are doing a physical door to door assessment of homes throughout the town. They hope to be complete by this evening. If you have suffered damage or if your home has been deemed “Unsafe” or “Restricted Access” please call your insurance company and notify them of your situation. They will have to assess damage and respond in order for FEMA officials to assist you! FEMA is in Town and has set up a disaster response center at Belleayre’s Discovery Lodge (Lower). We are trying to coordinate informational meetings at each of the Fire Houses.

If you know of  a neighbor that may not have access to this information as they are without power, cable or internet, please send word to them. The Town, with coordination of the Phoenicia Rotary, is establishing a Civilian Emergency Response Team (CERT). W e are looking for able bodied people to assist others in our community to salvage what they can. If you have them, bring Shovels, Work Gloves, brooms, dust masks and other general cleaning items. We will do our best to provide some of these materials. CERT meeting will take place at 12 noon on Friday, Sept. 2 in front of Mama’s Boy Cafe on Main St., Phoenicia.

Stream Restoration and Highway Restoration will continue until the Town feels we have addressed these satisfactorily. These include previously identified threat areas that proved to be troublesome during this event.
