The National Weather Service has issued a High Wind Watch from Harlem to Hollis, Queens from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM tomorrow, February 13th, 2017.
A High Wind Watch indicates that conditions are favorable for periods of high sustained winds in addition to higher intermittent gusts. Winds at these speeds can cause flying debris, turn unsecured objects into projectiles, and cause power outages.
To prepare, charge cell phone batteries, gather supplies, and turn refrigerators and freezers to a colder setting. Always stay clear of downed power lines. If you are affected by an outage, turn off all appliances and keep refrigerator and freezer doors closed to prevent food spoilage. Do not use generators indoors. If you lose power and have a disability or access needs, or use Life Sustaining Equipment (LSE) and need immediate assistance, please dial 9-1-1.
