The Florida Division of Emergency Management urges Florida’s residents and visitors to use caution this week along Florida’s Atlantic Coast lingering effects from Hurricane Sandy generate a high risk of rip currents from Nassau south to Miami-Dade County. High winds will also generate a high risk of rip currents from Pinellas to Monroe County and a moderate risk from Franklin County west to Escambia on the Gulf Coast.

“Lingering effects from Hurricane Sandy bring elevated risks of rip currents along many of Florida’s beaches this week,” said Amy Godsey, State Meteorologist for the Florida Division of Emergency Management. “It is important for all beachgoers to be aware of the rip current outlook for their area and always check the beach warning flags before entering the water.”

Hurricane Sandy: A state-by-state look at the East Coast superstorm

Posted by cat5shuttersllc on October 29, 2012

Hurricane Sandy: A state-by-state look at the East Coast superstormHurricane Sandy is churning off the East Coast and is expected to join up with two other weather systems to create a huge and problematic storm affecting 50 million people. Here’s a snapshot of what is happening or expected, state by state.

CAROLINAS

The U.S. Coast Guard rescued 14 members of a crew forced to abandon a tall ship about 90 miles off the North Carolina coast and continued to search for two other crew members. The storm lashed barrier islands and rendered several homes and businesses nearly inaccessible.

CONNECTICUT

Water from Long Island Sound began spilling into roadways and towns along the Connecticut shoreline in the first signs of flooding from Sandy. Officials say the flooding at high tide overnight could cause more damage than a 1938 New England hurricane, known as the Long Island Express.

DELAWARE

Dover Air Force Base has relocated some aircraft in anticipation of the storm, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency has requested that the base be used as a staging area for support and supplies. Some residents of low-lying areas of the base have been ordered to evacuate.

KENTUCKY

Sandy is expected to bring snow to far southeastern Kentucky. A winter storm warning is in effect in Harlan, Letcher and Pike counties through Wednesday morning. Forecasters say snow could accumulate from 4 to 10 inches in high elevations and 1 to 3 inches in lower elevations.

MAINE

Virtually all Maine public schools opened Monday but some were closing early before the heaviest rain and wind from Hurricane Sandy. State officials say the biggest concern is wind, which is expected to cause widespread power outages. The state’s utilities say they have crews poised to deal with expected power outages, including some from Canada.

MARYLAND

Hurricane Sandy inflicted considerable damage overnight to a large, iconic ocean pier in the Maryland beach resort of Ocean City. In mountainous western Maryland, a blizzard warning was issued for sections of Garrett County for Monday night into Tuesday morning.

MASSACHUSETTS

Town officials in Scituate issued a voluntary evacuation order Monday for about 200 to 300 homes in flood-prone areas, but few people were leaving. Among there are Tom and Lesley Chamberlain, who have lived on the ocean since 1999 and endured eight major storms. They’re planning to say put this time as well, even though the water at high tide was practically at their back door.

NEW HAMPSHIRE

Gov. John Lynch has urged all drivers to be off the roads by 3 p.m. as Hurricane Sandy approaches. Lynch declared a state of emergency and directed that non-essential state workers be released from work Monday afternoon. He urged employers to consider releasing workers early. The governor has put 100 New Hampshire Guard soldiers on active duty.

NEW JERSEY

Officials have closed a larger section of the Garden State Parkway because of flooding. The parkway is closed from Exit 63 in Stafford Township to the southern terminus. Most of Atlantic City is under water, and there’s flooding in other cities up and down the New Jersey shore as the storm approaches for a predicted direct hit to New Jersey.

NEW YORK

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the city’s public schools will remain closed on Tuesday after being shut down Monday. Earlier, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel and Holland Tunnel will close at 2 p.m. Monday. Airports in the metropolitan New York City area are open, but air carriers are not operating.

OHIO

Residents of low-lying areas and along Lake Erie were told to watch for flooding; utilities are anticipating high winds that could blow down trees and poles. Snow is forecast in some areas.

PENNSYLVANIA

Officials from the state transit agency and the Pennsylvania Turnpike have instituted speed restrictions over concerns about high winds and ordered certain vehicles, including empty trucks and motorcycles, off some highways. The National Weather Service says southeastern Pennsylvania could get winds reaching 75 mph and rainfall up to 10 inches.

RHODE ISLAND

Officials are concerned about wind driving water north up Narragansett Bay, which could create flooding in low-lying areas of the upper bay, including Providence, Warwick and Cranston. About 2,600 National Grid customers were without power, mostly in Barrington and other parts of Bristol County.

TENNESSEE

Snow is expected in higher elevations, where a freeze warning has been issued. High winds are expected in many areas.

VERMONT

Gov. Peter Shumlin declared a state of emergency to provide access to National Guard troops in a state still recovering from the devastating effects of the remnants of Hurricane Irene. Culverts and storm drainage basins in some spots have been cleared of debris.

VIRGINIA

A curfew is in place on Virginia’s swamped Chincoteague Island. Officials say the entire 37-square-mile island is underwater, and there is no way off the island because a causeway to the mainland has been closed. The 3,500 islanders who decided to tough out Hurricane Sandy have been told to keep off the streets.

WASHINGTON, D.C.

Taxis that originate in Washington are authorized to add an emergency flat rate of $15 per trip because of Hurricane Sandy, starting Monday. The price is supposed to expire at noon Tuesday, but can be extended if considered necessary. The capital area’s transit system shut down rail service for the first time since 2003.

WEST VIRGINI
A

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin declared a state of emergency Monday for West Virginia, where Sandy is expected to bring high winds and heavy rains and leave behind flooded towns and as much as 3 feet of snow on the state’s highest ridge tops. Eastern parts of the state can expect to get up to 6 inches of rain. Fourteen counties are under blizzard warnings.

Hurricane Sandy is now a Category 2! Tropical Storm Warning for Coastal Palm Beach County!

Posted by cat5shuttersllc on October 25, 2012

Hurricane Sandy is now a Category 2!  Tropical Storm Warning for Coastal Palm Beach County!

Probability of Tropical Storm Conditions!

 

Although there is little chancde for Hurricane conditions at this time in Palm Beach County, the chance for Tropical Storm conditions at this time is present.  This represents a general downward trend since the last forecast.

 

WINDS will increase through the morning hours with gusts to 35 to 45 mph, especially in showers and a few thunderstorms.  As hurricane sandy makes its closest approach to southeast Florida late tonight and Friday, sustained winds will increase to 30 to 35 mph with gusts to 50 to 60 mph.  Stronger winds are possible if Sandy moves closer than currently forecassted.  Continue to closely monitor the forecast for any significant changes and be ready to act given the uncertainty with the forecast.

PREPARATIo”NS should be made for the threat of minor wind damage.  There is a potential for damage to unanchored mobile homes!

 

PORCHES, CARPORTS and AWNINGS along with some damage to shingles and siding. LARGE BRANCHES broken off trees with several shallow-rooted and diseased trees blown down and unsecured light  weight objects easily blown about becoming dangerous projectiles driving conditions will be DANGEROUS on bridges and other elevated roadways, especially for high profile vehicles.  A few roads may be impassable due to large debries.  There is potential for scattered power outages, especially in areas with above ground lines!

DON’T BE UNPREPARED!!!
