प्रकाशित मिति : श्रावण १९, २०७७ सोमबार

New York City Emergency Management is issuing a travel advisory from Tuesday morning through Tuesday night. According to the National Weather Service, there is the potential for heavy rainfall and strong winds that may reduce visibility and create hazardous travel throughout Tuesday due to Tropical Storm Isaias.

The National Weather Service has issued a tropical storm warning, a flash flood watch and wind advisory for NYC, with sustained winds 40 to 50 mph, and gusts up to 60 mph. The heaviest rain is expected from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday. The City’s Flash Flood Plan is also in effect, and the City’s Downed Tree Task Force has been put on alert.

“New York City Emergency Management is in contact with the National Weather Service to prepare for the potential impacts from Tropical Storm Isaias,” NYC Emergency Management Commissioner Deanne Criswell said. “New Yorkers must stay vigilant in regards to possible flooding, high winds, and damaged property if they must move about the city during the storm.”

New Yorkers should plan for difficult travel conditions and are advised to exercise caution and consider taking public transportation if they must travel. Those who are able to stay home during the storm are advised to stay indoors. Heavy rains may lead to potential flooding in low-lying areas throughout the city, including lower Manhattan. If you are traveling, avoid flooded areas, turn on headlights, drive slowly, and exercise caution. Consider avoiding or delaying travel until flooding and heavy rain stop. Due to the hazardous travel conditions, people should allow extra travel time.
