Westchester County Airport preps for winter storm Nemo

The Westchester County Airport plans to be able to keep its runways clear and remain open throughout the big snowstorm that is predicted to arrive in the Hudson Valley on Friday and continue into Saturday, dumping up to 16 inches. Airport employees were making final preparations to heavy equipment used to clear snow and ice from the runway, and contractors were ready to clear all other ancillary roads and sidewalks. "It's like a ballet, when we go full force out there when it's really blowing." airport operations manager John Starace said, referring to the coordinating of heavy machinery on the runway.
