Rip Currents, Flooding Remain a Concern 

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone reports after receiving an updated weather forecast from the National Weather Service, Suffolk County has lifted the voluntary evacuation on Fire Island. While the National Hurricane Center still has a tropical storm warning in effect for the coast from Fire Island Inlet to Port Jefferson Harbor, the storm surge warning has been lifted. Emergency management personnel will continue to monitor the storm due to possible chance of minor flooding for immediate shoreline communities and low-lying areas during Monday’s high tide.

Nassau, County Executive Edward P. Mangano issued a Storm Surge Warning for residents living in flood prone areas and Tropical Storm Warning for all residents. National Weather Service models indicate that flooding – similar to Hurricane Irene – will likely occur on Monday at high tide, Mangano said, possibly resulting in 2 to 4 feet of flood waters.

PSEG Long Island Prepares for Tropical Storm Hermine

PSEG Long Island is closely monitoring Tropical Storm Hermine and the possibility it could impact our service territory this weekend and into early next week. The storm could bring the potential for heavy rain and strong winds as it sweeps up the east coast and possibly lingers into next week.

American Red Cross on Long Island Updates: A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for our area. Hermine is tracking North East, with its path not yet entirely clear. A little to the South or North could have a large impact on wind, rain and potential flooding. However, since Hermine seems to stall once it hits the Atlantic, any impact will be prolonged, possibly through Tuesday or Wednesday.

Start of storm: Winds will gradually pick up Saturday, with heaviest impact of storm from Sunday 2AM to Monday 2AM.

Winds: Possible winds during height of storm currently estimated 15-35 mph with gusts, highest along the Southern coast.

Coastal Impacts: Potential for Moderate to Major flooding during high tides on Sunday (Around 10 AM and 10 PM depending on location). Due to the rotation of winds, this will resemble a moderate to potentially strong North Easter. Greatest impact of flooding will therefore be in the back bays of Nassau County, South & North Shores, and Suffolk Peconic Bay. Nassau County low-lying areas (like Freeport) could see 2-4 feet above nominal high tide, Suffolk 1-3 feet. Some beach erosion along South Shore likely.

Rain: Will be determined by final track of storm, since the bands cut off sharply. If storm tracks closer, heavy rainfall could occur. If further away, possibly none.

Stay informed, and stay safe.
