And right now we're joined by -- deal who is in the house.
Good to see -- -- normally we see on Imus in the morning but let's let's focus on Manhattan and New York City and the preparations.
-- -- if people don't know all right they should you were a detective go hop from many as.
Is this and like anything you've ever -- well my compliments for.
Well we're security company right now -- mobile and I would mobilizing several hundred people together.
To try to open support Con Ed and all the power companies out there.
My compliments to the Powell companies what did doing is.
Dead man Powell would cause so as soon as these polls go down and electrical wires go down they wanna get someone alluded to protect that area.
So no one gets any -- electrocution or anything like that.
Again they've planned for this.
Again most compliments to them -- not -- and -- -- -- back regardless what happened utility companies are really pro lacking on this well.
But in part -- calls it just for example the northeast had to.
Terrible storms last year there was one ever Halloween.
Surprise snow storm and then Hurricane Irene last year.
And the power companies were heavily criticized with their response in many instances this -- Connecticut for example so have they learned their lesson sinks as well have.
We've been mobilizing we've been mobilizing all weekend long from Friday getting gathered together has -- -- weekend the problem -- a lot of the people there.
With the cards you've got to get because certain location we have bands getting people around -- city that you have the security jobs.
-- look our custom is you have to get security there.
There's no transportation authority of his -- -- -- so we got to mobilize them around so what's -- logistically.
Everything's happening smooth and there's no probable traffic that's one thing in here we're very lucky but it's common and the high winds of thing that I'm really frightened about.
While these winds coming down a lot of people don't realize these lines are electrical lines and all -- -- have -- current.
And especially we're going into Halloween on Wednesday.
And that's a big fear is kids out on the street trick or treating so this is gonna last for quite awhile and it is a good -- and election couldn't come back maybe for week.
In some areas.
But again I gotta compliment the utility -- because everyone always -- them out and now they're out there they've really proactive.
On this thing wealth.
-- its earlier point about Connecticut last year that was one of the things that they were worried about in fact many towns just said.
That I Halloween is effectively canceled -- -- want the kids out of the streets with the power lines down so hopefully but we may have a repeat of that this year people stay up what about the organization.
Both from -- as you said -- -- it & Associates is a private.
A security big -- so was at the local governments and whether it's New Jersey New York that were calling you and and and what do you think about the fact that.
People -- -- it's not overhyped but seems like they were on top of that early on here.
Well I was the first one -- say it was an overreaction shut the subways at 7 o'clock last night the buses I said you know what this is overreaction.
In retrospect we could save one life right and that's what I think the -- and the governors and Greek government call -- grow of -- Christie over that they don't want anybody to be hurt or killed in this in this storm so they're pro acting.
And you -- so my compliments to him if this thing blows by and nobody -- hurt and nobody dies.
That's a -- I -- I wanted to do add to that because.
When did mayor did -- -- before hand and wasn't planning any evacuations.
And they didn't announce definitively that the subways which shot at 7 PM.
You know the New Yorkers were not in the grocery stores they warrant stocking up.
And there -- a lot of people still in the city but it was that was -- even if there was preempted even if they did it too early.
When they announced that the subways were shut down at 7 PM people started really acting and that's when they flooded hadn't had no pun intended at all flooded the supermarkets right.
And you know in New York we of these high buildings a lot of people realize.
The wind velocity when he goes umpire at some points could double to you they have a 100 mile and -- winds.
My biggest fears that construction sites them as much as they secured them the construction sites debris blown off wind is being blown out.
That's something that you can't you you don't know what's gonna happen to -- win column and that win with those windows we don't know what kind of win they can hold.
And it's a lot of all the buildings the windows aren't as secure as our -- -- freelance and and every thought lights the most important thing I think people could do stay at home hoping -- television stays on.
And stay home -- relax for that this is going to be all all the way if they save the tristate area right he had not upstate New York.
Should be -- by tomorrow night's -- Buckle -- read some books of the lights go out and make sure you -- your flashlight.
Relax for a while that you know the problem is a lot of people get anxiety my own kids in the UK going to work you -- -- -- -- you know what to my -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Will make it through this is not the worst thing is -- but people have to relax don't get so.
Much anxiety that you get yourself sick that you'll be all right we'll be overstating house stay meet the safety -- home it was surprising and comforting words from the crowd you know also them.
