URGENT WARNING FOR NYC AND NJ – "HURRICANE SANDY-LIKE" STORM SURGE COMING THIS WEEKEND FROM HURRICANE HERMINE!!! MASSIVE FLOODING (AGAIN)
New York City and New Jersey are being urgently warned that another storm-surge, on the scale of Hurricane Sandy, is heading for the region as Hurricane Hermine makes its way north from Florida. "Devastating" flooding is forecast – on the same scale as what took place during Hurricane Sandy — for the New York City, New Jersey areas.
Wind-Driven Rain and Wind-Driven Storm-Surge will combine just as they did in the past. Citizens in these areas are urged to URGENTLY PREPARE. If you got flooded during Hurricane Sandy, it is highly likely you will get that same degree of flooding again with this storm!
The Accu-Weather Forecast Video below lays-out how it will take place and emphasizes the DANGER for NYC and NJ . . . danger just like the flooding from Hurricane Sandy. A high pressure system over Ohio and Pennsylvania will work jointly with the low pressure system of Hurricane Hermine to literally PLOW WIND-DRIVEN FLOOD WATERS into NYC & NJ. Citizens are desperately urged to prepare!
