Mayor Paul F. Rickenbach Jr. declared a state of emergency in East Hampton Village ahead of the snow storm expected to hit the East End on Thursday evening.

The declaration took effect at 4 p.m., the same time as the Town of East Hampton's state of emergency went into place, which had previously been announced.

Vehicles parked on the road should be removed immediately — the town set a deadline of 5 p.m. Cars will likely be towed if they impede snow plows.

"We would just request that all village residents stay within the footprint of their home during the storm," the mayor said. "There's no reason to go out except if there's an emergency."

The Village and Town opened up a joint emergency operations center to field calls about downed trees and wires, outages, etc., starting at 7 p.m.

East Hampton Town has two non-emergency telephone numbers for use during this storm. Town residents should call 631-907-9743 and 631-907-9796.

Village residents can use one of these two lines: 631-329-7169 and 631-329-7170.

Village and town officials met together at the EOC at 4 p.m.
