Ahead of the winter storm that will begin Monday night, Riverhead Town officials are urging all residents to park their vehicles off the street.

Supervisor Laura Jens-Smith said in a statement early Monday afternoon that residents must remove their vehicles from the street so that snowplows can get to work clearing the snow.

A winter storm warning is in effect from Monday at 8 p.m. to Tuesday at 6 p.m. The National Weather Service said the North Fork could get 8 to 10 inches of snow before its over.

If you see anyone without shelter or that needs help, call the Riverhead Town Police Department at 631-727-4500.
