A Strong Nor'Easter to Hit the Tri-State Area

As many of you may know, a macro-scale cyclone from the Northeast is upon us, threatening New York City and parts of the Tri-State Area. A high wind warning is in effect through early Tuesday.

We encourage residents of New York City, New Jersey, Long Island and Connecticut to take precaution when walking around their property and elsewhere. Please monitor the news for information about the coming storm, potential power outages, and transportation disruptions. Gusts of wind from the Northeast, at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour, can cause downed trees and power lines, and turn unsecured objects into projectiles. Winds at such speeds can also make automobile travel difficult, especially on elevated roadways and bridges. The forecast includes periods of heavy rain.

In preparation, we remind you to:

  • Please keep all windows tightly shut and locked during showings, at home and at the office
  • Stay inside and away from windows
  • Stock up on water and non-perishable food
  • Have a flashlight and radio with extra batteries ready in case of a power outage
  • Please do not light candles as they are a fire hazard
  • Check on elderly or infirm neighbors
  • Call 911 if you encounter an emergency situation
  • Should you or a neighbor require special attention, please call Public Safety (311) to be placed on a special needs list

Stay alert and pass those guidelines to your clients, friends and family.
