As New Yorkers closely monitor the path of Hurricane Sandy, it is important that we prepare for the storm’s potential impacts.
Although the storm track is still uncertain, Hurricane Sandy has the potential to affect many parts of New York State with a variety of threats — including heavy rain, high winds, flooding, tornadoes, coastal surges, and widespread power outages.
In addition to tracking the storm’s path as it approaches early next week, families should consider creating a “storm emergency kit” that includes items such as non-perishable food, water, cash, filled prescriptions, a battery-powered or hand-crank radio, first aid kit, flashlights and extra batteries.
