How many alarms are necessary?

To the Editor:

Must the Southampton Sheriff’s Department call at 4:00 pm, 10:20 pm, 3:45 am and 9:45 am to tell about a severe weather advisory when everyone has known about [it] for approximately four days?

The 4:00 pm and the 9:45 am aren’t so bad. But c’mon, 3:45 am (Friday morning) when people are sleeping? I thought there was an emergency in the family. I haven’t been back to sleep since that 3:45 phone call.

Enough is enough; we all know the weather is going to be bad.
