MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. - A State of Emergency is still active in Mount Vernon Wednesday as the cleanup and power restoration efforts continue.

With Mayor Ernie Davis out of the area, Council President Roberta Apuzzo has assumed the position under Section 24 of New York State law.

"The State of Emergency has been declared due to Hurricane Sandy," Apuzzo said in a news release. "The situation threatens the public safety and will remain in effect until rescinded by a subsequent order."

Apuzzo has directed all city departments and agencies within the city to take the necessary steps to protect life, property and public information.
