Wind, Tropical Storm, Flash Flood and Tornado Advisories and Warnings for NYC

NY Governor Cuomo Updates New Yorkers on the Tropical Storm Isaias

Anyone wishing to be kept abreast of all the local and latest forecasts can head over to the NOAA National Weather Service Site where you’ll find local watches, warnings or advisories for New York. Looking at that page, as of this moment, one can see Coastal Flood Advisories, Tropical Storm Warnings, Flood Advisories, Wind Advisories and Tornado Warnings for the NYC area and beyond.

“Tropical Storm Isaias has started moving through New York, bringing with it strong winds, torrential rain and the potential for flash flooding that can cause major disruptions, and I’m urging New Yorkers, particularly those directly in Isaias’ path, to stay calm, be smart and avoid unnecessary travel,” said the Governor. “Our emergency response team has been pre-deployed to the areas projected to be the hardest hit, and we are prepared to assist our local partners in keeping New Yorkers safe.”

Forecasts are predicting wind speeds between 40 to 50mph with gusts up to 70mph in the lower mId-Hudson, New York City and Long Island Regions. Although, projections have shown the storm’s tracked path has shifted slightly west away from the eastern border.

As part of his announcement, his office’s alerts include:

  • State Emergency Response Assets Strategically Deployed to Support Localities
  • New Yorkers Should Plan for Possibility of Strong Winds, Heavy Rains and Flash Flooding
  • Tandem Trailers and Empty Tractor Trailers Banned from MTA Bridges from Noon to Midnight on Tuesday
