Nor’Easter Jonas Brings Blizzard And Coastal Flood Warnings; Con Ed Expects Area Outages


With nor’easter Jonas approaching New York City, warnings have been issued and Bronx residents should take precautions especially our residents in the East Bronx particularly Throggs Neck, Country Club, City Island, Edgewater Park, and Silver Beach.

According to the marine forecast, tides will be 1-3 feet higher than normal starting tonight and into Sunday in the coastal areas of The Bronx on the Long Island Sound.

The warning is in effect starting tonight at midnight and currently will remain into effect until 7 AM and the forecast now calls for possibly 10 to 18 inches of snow with 30-40mph winds and gusts reaching up to 55mph so please do be careful if you have to go out due to white out conditions expected.

If not, just stay warm, indoors and read a good book or watch Netflix (I highly recommend Rita).

Meanwhile, Con Edison is already sending out robo-calls stating that there may be power outages in the area due to high winds, down trees and power lines and recommend anyone in susceptible areas that are on life saving medical equipment to check into a hospital as a precaution (when I heard that my first question was, will they foot the bill?).

Be safe out there and stay tuned to local channels and weather channels to keep up to date on the progress of the storm.
