SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------

Heavy rain leading to flooding will be possible, especially 
along and southeast of the Interstate 95 corridor due to Tropical 
Storm Fay. Tropical Storm Fay is currently off the Outer Banks. It 
is expected to progress north over our region through Friday. Heavy 
rain is possible beginning very late tonight and continuing through 
Friday evening. The threat for tropical storm winds over land is 
very low except right along the New Jersey coast.

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

* FLOODING RAIN:
Protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts along and southeast Interstate 95 corridor. Potential 
impacts include:
    - Localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents. 
      Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and ditches may become 
      swollen and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually 
      vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water 
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage 
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become 
      near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief road and bridge 
      closures. 

* TORNADOES:
Protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts across
New Jersey... and southeastern Pennsylvania. 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.

* WIND:
Protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
coastal New Jersey. Potential impacts in this area 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.

Elsewhere across the region, little to no impact is anticipated.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS

area, consider moving to higher ground. Never drive through a flooded
roadway. Remember, turn around don't drown!
