Special Weather Statement from the National Weather Service
The National Weather Service continues to closely monitor the progress of Hurricane Sandy. The latest official forecast tracks the center of Sandy toward the central or southern New Jersey coastline, late Monday. High wind warnings remain in effect for the entire region through Tuesday morning, and a flood watch remains in effect for most of eastern New York and all of adjacent western New England until late Tuesday. It is important not to focus on the exact center and track of Sandy, as this storm will be quite large and powerful.

Flooding impacts: Rainfall could be excessive across portions of eastern New York and western New England, especially across higher terrain. If you live in a flood-prone area, be prepared in the event of a flash flood or mandatory evacuation. Listen to your local emergency officials and be especially attentive to road closures.

Damaging wind impacts: Wind gusts up to 65 mph are expected in the valleys and up to 75 mph over the higher terrain. These wind speeds will result in damage to trees and power lines. Items left outdoors may become extremely dangerous projectiles. Also widespread power outages are expected.
