Southold Town Supervisor Scott Russell said Friday that a discussion on the 2013 town budget scheduled for Monday night has been rescheduled for Thursday, Nov. 1 at 7 p.m. at the Peconic Lane Community Center due to the impending storm.

Mr. Russell said Southold will decide tomorrow, Oct. 27, whether to open town emergency shelters during the storm. If so, an announcement will be posted on the town’s website and will be covered on this site

He said Suffolk County plans to open three shelters, in Hampton Bays, Brentwood and Sachem, and a shelter for people with special needs at the John J. Foley Skilled Nursing Facility in Yaphank.

“Everybody’s been activated to stay ready,” he said.
