Send Word Now Prepares for Historic Northeast Blizzard

NEW YORK, NY, Feb 08, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Send Word Now, the leading worldwide provider of emergency notification and incident management services, announced today that the company is prepared to assist clients and prospects with critical alerts as the Northeast prepares for a winter blizzard. The storm, which started Friday morning, is expected to continue into Saturday.


Blizzard warnings are already in effect from coastal Maine to metro New York City and Long Island. The National Weather Service issued warnings for heavy snow and strong winds with gusts up to 45 mph. One to two feet of snow can be expected in New York, with some areas of New England potentially getting up to three feet.
