The National Weather Service has also issued a Storm Surge Watch for coastal areas of New York City until further notice. The combination of strong winds, dangerous storm surge and high tide may cause normally dry areas to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline within the next 48 hours. During a Tropical Storm Watch and a Storm Surge Watch, prepare your home and review your plan for evacuation in case a Hurricane or Tropical Storm Warning is issued. If you lose power and have a disability or access needs, or use Life Sustaining Equipment (LSE) and need immediate assistance, please dial 9-1-1.

El Servicio Meteorológico Nacional ha emitido una alerta de marea de tormenta para toda o parte del área costera de la Ciudad de Nueva York. La combinación de fuertes vientos, una peligrosa marea de tormenta y la marea en sí pueden provocar que áreas habitualmente secas se inunden debido al aumento del nivel de las aguas que se dirigen tierra adentro desde la costa en las próximas 48 horas. Las personas que residen en el área de la alerta deben tomar todas las precauciones necesarias para proteger sus vidas y bienes del aumento del nivel de las aguas y de otras situaciones peligrosas potenciales.
