JERSEY CITY, NJ– Dozens of Filipino-Americans began stocking up on food, water, and other essential in preparation for the onslaught of winter storm Nemo.

“It’s hard when you run out of food, especially when the power goes out,” said New Jersey resident Ed Castillo. “Stock up now because when the snow piles up, it’s hard to get around.”

Mercy Bermudez, also of New Jersey, said non-perishables food helps her get through storms.
“ I stock up on canned good and cooked food. I live on the ninth floor of my building and I don’t want to be trapped when the elevators go out and I can’t use the stairs to get down.”
In neighboring New York, Mayor Michael Bloomberg told residents to use common sense and stay out of the streets.

Meantime, power providers in the area say, while they are more prepared this time after lessons learned from Superstorm Sandy, high winds and heavy snow buildup could still knockdown power poles that could disrupt power.
