POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

* FLOODING RAIN:
Protect against dangerous rainfall flooding having possible 
significant impacts across Southeast New York, Northeast New Jersey, 
and Southern Connecticut. Potential impacts include:
    - Moderate rainfall flooding may prompt several evacuations and 
      rescues.
    - Rivers and streams may quickly become swollen with swifter 
      currents and may overspill their banks in a few places, 
      especially in usually vulnerable spots. Small streams, creeks, 
      canals, and ditches may overflow.
    - Flood waters can enter some structures or weaken foundations. 
      Several places may experience expanded areas of rapid 
      inundation at underpasses, low lying spots, and poor drainage 
      areas. Some streets and parking lots take on moving water as 
      storm drains and retention ponds overflow. Driving conditions 
      become hazardous. Some road and bridge closures.

* WIND:
Protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across 
Southeast New York, Northeast New Jersey, and Southern Connecticut. 
Potential impacts include:
    - Damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored 
      mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or 
      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are 
      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban 
      or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on 
      bridges and other elevated roadways.
    - Scattered power and communications outages.

* TORNADOES:
Protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts 
across Southeast New York, Northeast New Jersey, and Southern 
Connecticut. Potential impacts include:
    - The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution 
      of emergency plans during tropical events.
    - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power 
      and communications disruptions.
    - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys 
      toppled, mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned, 
      large tree tops and branches snapped off, shallow rooted trees 
      knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats 
      pulled from moorings.

* OTHER COASTAL HAZARDS:
Beach flooding and localized dune erosion along the Atlantic Ocean
beachfront are possible during the times of high tide Friday through 
Saturday. Low probability of minor coastal flooding in vulnerable
coastal areas during the high tide on Friday night.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
----------------------------------

Now is the time to complete all preparations to protect life and 
property in accordance with your emergency plan. Make sure you are in 
a safe location before the onset of strong winds or possible flooding.

Keep cell phones well charged. Cell phone chargers for automobiles 
can be helpful, but be aware of your risk for deadly carbon monoxide 
poisoning if your car is left idling in a garage or other poorly 
ventilated area.

Rapidly rising flood waters are deadly. If you are in a flood prone 
area, consider moving to higher ground. Never drive through a flooded 
roadway. Remember, Turn Around Don't Drown!

If a Tornado Warning is issued for your area, be ready to shelter 
quickly, preferably away from windows and in an interior room not 
prone to flooding. If driving, scan the roadside for quick shelter 
options.

If in a place that is vulnerable to high winds, such as near large 
trees, a mobile home, upper floors of a high rise building, or on a 
boat, consider moving to a safer shelter before the onset of strong 
winds or flooding.

Closely monitor http://weather.gov, NOAA Weather radio or local news 
outlets for official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible 
changes to the forecast. Ensure you have multiple ways to receive 
weather warnings.
