Northeast Hit by Winter Storm One Week after Sandy

3 Minute Read

While residents of the Northeast try to recover from Hurricane Sandy, another storm is set to hit the already battered area. A nor’easter will strike the area with strong winds, rain, and heavy snow on Wednesday and Thursday.

Due to the damage left by Hurricane Sandy, extra precautions for this new but weaker storm have already been taken. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg halted all construction, closed all parks and beaches, and advised that drivers stay off the road after 5:00 PM. Airlines operating out of airports in New York City and Philadelphia have suspended service to and from the area. New York and New Jersey have also issued evacuations of the areas already hurt by Hurricane Sandy last week.

Residents in the northeast saw snow and rain early on Wednesday and forecasters are predicting winds of up to 60 mph and heavy rain and snowfall. Power outages and flooding, especially in areas that are still in recovery from last week’s super storm, can be expected. Make sure you stay updated on this winter storm and how it will affect your area and organization.

Additionally, we would like to offer our assistance, in the form of a trial account of our communication platform, to any organization that will be affected by Sandy this weekend.
