HURRICANE THREATENS NORTHEAST: NEW YORK CITY IN CONE!

Hurricane Henri *still a tropical storm at press time* threatens anywhere from the New Jersey coast line all the way to Maine..

This could also be the first storm to hit in this fashion in three decades..

At this moment, a storm surge warning has been issued for the south shore of Long Island from Mastic Beach eastward to Montauk, on the north shore of Long Island from Oyster Bay eastward to Montauk, as well as from Greenwich, Connecticut east to Chatham, Massachusetts, including Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard and Block Island.

A storm surge warning is issued when there is a threat of life-threatening storm surge within the next 36 hours.

Some models are even including New York City dangerous close to a direct path of the storm..

A hurricane warning has been issued for Long Island from Fire Island Inlet and from Port Jefferson Harbor eastward, as well as from New Haven, Connecticut, to Watch Hill, Rhode Island. A hurricane warning is issued 36 hours before the first onset of tropical-storm-force winds

A hurricane watch continues for Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard and Block Island, and from Watch Hill, Rhode Island eastward to Sagamore Beach, Massachusetts. A hurricane watch is typically issued 48 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force winds. Hurricane conditions are possible in the watch areas Sunday, with tropical storm conditions by early Sunday.

A tropical storm watch has been issued west of Manasquan Inlet, New Jersey to East Rockaway Inlet, New York, including New York City. A tropical storm watch means tropical storm conditions are possible within 48 hours.

Long Island is currently expected to face the biggest brunt from Henri..
