Winds of winter buffet Rockville Centre
Homeowners' properties were already buried in more than 5 inches of snow throughout the village by late Tuesday afternoon. Some snow drifts were up to 12 inches.

The streets of Rockville Centre were covered with more than five inches powdery snow by early evening on Jan. 21 — and the storm still showed no signs of stopping.

Very few residents were out on the streets, and village workers had yet to plow most of the major village roads by the end of the workday on Tuesday, though emergency vehicles were making rounds through the village.

According to the National Weather Service, Nassau County is expected to see a total of 8-12 inches by Wednesday morning. A winter storm warning remains in effect until 6:00 a.m. Governor Andrew Cuomo has declared a state of emergency

The Rockville Centre School District announced that it will be closing school on Wednesday, Jan. 22 due to the snow, and the Board of Education meeting that was scheduled for Wednesday evening is also canceled. Additionally, the village Planning Board meeting scheduled for tonight at Village Hall has been canceled.
