The Week In Review-The Weekend Ahead

Heavy Snow Wallops Local Area


A severe snowstorm hit Orange County on Feb. 9. More than a foot of snow was reported in various locations. The storm paralyzed the area. Schools were closed, flights were canceled, and local business and government were at a standstill. New Windsor, Newburgh, and Cornwall town halls were closed due to the bad weather. Newburgh City Hall remained open as of early Thursday afternoon. However, a city council work session scheduled for that evening was canceled. A chance of snow is likely again heading into the weekend, according to the National Weather Service. Seen here is Robinson Avenue near Newburgh Free Academy’s North Campus on Feb. 9.
