Tornado Watch Cancels After School, Evening Activities
A tornado watch issued by the National Weather Service for the lower Hudson Valley including Putnam County has resulted in area schools cancelling all after-school and evening activities.
Districts affected include the Brewster, Carmel, Mahopac and Putnam Valley schools. In Haldane after-school activities are not affected except for an away volleyball game which has been cancelled.
Putnam Commissioner of Emergency Services Adam Stiebeling reminded the public that the tornado advisory was only a watch—not a warning: “Should a tornado be cited then a warning declaration will be made.”
The advisory remains in effect until 5 p.m.
