The latest computer models from the National Weather Service are showing a DIRECT IMPACT of Hurricane Florence on the New Jersey, New York City, Long Island area next week with CATEGORY 4 or 5 Winds! ! ! ! ! !
Weather experts are already saying "The potential destruction could be catastrophic."
While the computer models could be wrong, and the hurricane may still turn away from the area, Folks in all of New Jersey, all 5 Boroughs of New York City and the entire length of Long Island should begin making serious preparations for this storm.
As of right now, Thursday September 6, 2018 at 2:00 PM Eastern US time, Hurricane Florence is still way out at sea as shown on the National Hurricane Center Map below:
But the super-computers used by the National Weather Service and their Global Forecast System (GFS) are showing the Hurricane coming right to the NJ/NYC area on September 13, 14, and 15, as seen below:
If the storm takes the anticipated track, STORM SURGE IN NEW JERSEY AND NYC COULD BE WORSE THAN HURRICANE SANDY
The onslaught would basically begin on September 13 as shown here:
Early in the day on the 13th, the effects of the storm will become very evident in New Jersey and get worse from then:
Bear in mind that forecasting the track of hurricanes IS NOT an exact science and the storm may change course and go out to sea, leaving NJ/NYC/LI unaffected.
But prudence dictates folks in this area pay extremely close attention to what takes place and prepare in advance.
People who wait until one day before the storm arrives find empty store shelves when they go shopping: No food, no water. They find empty gas stations - no fuel. Then they cry about how bad things are . . . . because they failed to prepare. Don't be like them. Prepare now.
These are common sense items but sadly, nowadays, an awful lot of people have very little common sense. Don't be like them.
This could be the worst Hurricane to hit the NJ / NYC / LI area in fifty years. PREPARE!
