Tie Everything Down: Wind Gusts Up to 45 mph in New York City

The NYC Department of Buildings is advising property owners, builders and contractors to get ready for high winds today and tomorrow.

The National Weather Service forecasts wind gusts up to 45 mph for the New York City area Tuesday February 8, through Wednesday, February 9.

DOB will be performing random spot-check inspections of construction sites around the city. If construction sites are not safely secured, the Department "will take immediate enforcement action with the issuance of violations and Stop Work Orders if necessary."

More information here.

If that's not bad enough, the temperature is going to plunge tonight to a low around 14 degrees. Add the wind and it will feel like 0 or colder.
