NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Residents of areas devastated by Superstorm Sandy are heeding warnings as a massive winter storm intensifies.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg is urging those still without heat from Sandy to seek shelter.
“Call 311 and we’ll be sure to find you shelter,” he said. “Certainly, if you or someone you see has symptoms like uncontrolled shivering or disorientation, that may very well be hypothermia and hypothermia can be deadly. So anyone with these symptoms should get someplace warm immediately.”

Bloomberg also warned residents living in low-lying coastal areas that flooding may occur as the storm barrels through the Tri-State.
“Because of the likelihood of moderate coastal flooding, the FDNY has pre-positioned a number of its waterborne rescue units in the city’s low-lying coastal areas and the NYPD has emergency service units in those areas as well and they’ll be beefing up police patrols,” Bloomberg said.
