With storm on the way, Bloomberg tells struggling New Yorkers to get off the road

As a Nor'easter hones in on the Northeastern coast, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has a message for residents already struggling with the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy: Get off the road.

The storm is expected to begin pounding the New York area around midday and will bring frigid temperatures, high winds, storm surges and an inch or so of rain to many towns that are still without power, still flooded, or are finally just getting back to normal after Sandy roared through.

"The city is taking significant precautions in advance of the storm, including halting all construction, closing all city parks, encouraging drivers to stay off the road after 5:00 PM, or to use extreme caution if they have to drive and employing door-to-door operations to urge people without heat to take shelter to stay warm," Bloomberg's office said in a statement.
