The National Hurricane Center’s computer models show an increased possibility of Hurricane Joaquin hitting the East Coast of the U.S. on Sunday, then edging up to New York on Monday.
Still, other models predict different trajectories. A European model has the hurricane headed harmlessly out to sea, the Brooklyn Eagle reports.
John Melville, Commissioner of the state Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services said residents should take preparation seriously.
“Having emergency supplies on hand such as flashlights and batteries, and water and canned goods is essential. Residents should begin monitoring weather conditions through local media reports and broadcasts, and be sure to follow any protective orders issued by emergency officials,” he said in a statement.
Even more telling, Ms. Levi's seventh-grade science class informs us that Joaquim is now a Category 2 hurricane . . .
How many of my 7th graders are following the storm?! We are now at a cat. 2, folks!! Joaquin is strengthening! ☔️☔️☔️ #7thGradeScience— Mrs. Levi (@MrsCoach_Levi) October 1, 2015
