New York Faces Ongoing Flash Floods, Yellow Alert, and Anticipated Impact from Hurricane Lee.
New York is preparing for a handful of severe storms, resulting in flash flood warnings due to the ongoing storm system. The expected rains and high humidity have led to a Yellow Alert warning, anticipated to linger until the weekend’s end. The Tri-State area could indeed face impacts from the brewing Hurricane Lee, currently a Category 3 storm with potential to surge back to a formidable Category 4.
Despite varying predictions, focus is now on Hurricane Lee, predicted to impact the US East Coast next week. Areas from Outer Banks to Long Island and possibly Boston could be affected. The hurricane may produce high surf and hazardous rip currents from Monday to Tuesday. However, the specific local impacts and the timeframe for landfall, predicted for next Friday or Saturday, remain uncertain.
Residents are advised to stay alert due to potential high surf conditions and hazardous rip currents under the continuing Yellow Alert. The impending threats from Hurricane Lee and surrounding storms make this particularly important. Given the uncertainty around the hurricane’s path and impact, locals are encouraged to prepare for all scenarios.
