Another storm heading towards New York, New Jersey
Washington: Another storm could bring in rain and coastal flooding causing more havoc in areas already hit hardest by Hurricane Sandy in New York and New Jersey.
The National Weather Service predicted on Sunday that a Nor’easter that could include gusts of up to 55 mph is likely to reach the area by Wednesday and could compound the havoc brought by last week’s violent weather.
“Prepare for more outages,” weather service meteorologist Joe Pollina advised, adding: “Stay indoors. Stock up again.”
According to Fox News, he said that the new storm would not be nearly as strong as Sandy, but could pack winds ‘stronger than usual, even strong for a Nor``easter’.
He said the strongest winds from the new storm would likely be seen on eastern Long Island and the highest gusts in New York City would probably be 40 mph.
Meanwhile, cold temperatures streamed in, and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said that means ‘tens of thousands’ of people whose homes were damaged by Sandy will need other places to live.
“It’s going to become increasingly clear that homes without heat are uninhabitable”, Cuomo said.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said that 20,000 people in the city could need housing help.
