New York City is preparing itself for the upcoming Tropical Storm Isaias, which is bashing against the Florida Eastern Coast. Isaias will move against the American East Coast, attacking every state that faces its destructive powers. Concerns for civilian personnel are highest in New York City, which is located throughout various islands against the ocean.
Heavy winds at 112 Kilometres-Per-Hour are slated to attack New York City, causing substantial flooding & damage to largescale skyscrapers that struggle to handle such high speeds. August 4th marks the date when Tropical Storm Isaias will arrive in New York City, with the American National Weather Service declaring that flash flooding will be unavoidable. Subsequently, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has begun prepping the city for what’s coming.
Florida avoided the onslaught of damage that’ll be caused by Tropical Storm Isaias, with its destructive power barely reaching the coast. Live broadcasts from Miami Beach showed that tree’s, buildings, and power lines were all handling the high winds. Surfboards were seen flying throughout the air, but overall safety was guaranteed. That’s because heavy winds in Florida were sustained at 85 Kilometres-Per-Hour. New York City will be facing higher odds.
The Press Conference
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo held a Press Conference on August 2nd, particularly addressing civilian populations in New York City. Cuomo informed that the standard locations would receive the onslaught of damage, including Long Island and Hudson Valley. Initially, heavy winds will sustain 112kph but quickly fall towards 50kph as it moves towards the Canadian Coast Line.
Andrew Cuomo also evoked that severe thunderstorms would follow for two-days after the disappearance of Tropical Storm Isaias, with the possibility of tornado’s forming on the Hudson River. The chances of this happening are minimal. However, the Governor declared that Underwater Current would be considerably more influential in Long Island. Andrew Cuomo emphasized that Olympic Swimmers couldn’t handle the strength of these Rip Tides. There are also substantial Shark Warnings, with Tropical Storm Isaias forcing Shark populations further inland.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo finalized his public address by informing his population to remain indoors at all costs, that vehicles can’t sustain these winds & that lives will be put significantly at danger by travelling.
