The “Frankenstorm,” the statement advised, “could cause a heavy coating of leaves and fallen tree branches on streets, sidewalks and front yards, which means trick-or-treaters should be extra careful on Wednesday.”
Along with the standard warnings to wear reflective clothing, have an adult with children at all times, and not to eat opened candy, Mr. Santiago also recommended “in light of the storm, avoid crossing where lights are out.”
“If you see a down power line,” Mr. Santiago stated in an email, “do not go near it and report it to an adult or call 911.”
The 4th District station also sent out fliers Tuesday stating that because the “monster” storm had passed, it was time to celebrate at the Safe Haven Halloween event on Wednesday.
