Under normal circumstances, according to NYC.gov, the storm would probably result in minor coastal flooding in low-lying areas, and the usual downed trees.
But because Hurricane Sandy weakened trees and caused extensive damage and debris, the predicted wind speeds present an increased risk of more downed trees and tree limbs, as well as windblown debris. All New Yorkers are urged to stay indoors.
Some of the lowest-lying areas in the city – particularly the areas flooded by last week’s Hurricane Sandy – are vulnerable to storm surge today.
If you experienced significant flooding during Hurricane Sandy -- in particular, residents of Breezy Point, Hamilton Beach, and Gerristen Beach -- you should consider taking shelter elsewhere, the Mayor says.
