Storm warning for LI commuters, shoreline residents
State officials are warning commuters to be home Friday before the normal rush hour and shoreline residents to seek alternate shelter to avoid the teeth of a major winter storm that could bring 1-2 feet of snow.
The storm could bring winds up to 60 mph, downing trees and knocking out power, said Jerry Hauer, director of the state Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services.
