From Harlem To The Hudson, A New York City Emergency Travel Alert

April 2, 2024

NYC Emergency Management has issued a travel advisory for Wednesday, April 3, 2024, into Thursday morning, Thursday, April 4th, 2024, for additional rainfall, coastal flooding, and high winds.

The National Weather Service has issued a High Wind Watch, in effect citywide from 11AM on Wednesday, 4/3, until 5AM on Thursday, 4/4.

A Coastal Flood Warning has been issued for Queens South, Queens North, and The Bronx.

An additional 2-3 inches of rain is expected citywide, locally heavy at times. Multiple areas are under a Coastal Flood Advisory until Thursday morning.

Heavy rain will result in widespread minor flooding across the city, particularly in low-lying and poor drainage areas.

Flooded roadways could create travel disruptions during Wednesday’s evening commute.

A few flood-prone roads may become impassable. Minor flooding of structures and properties will also be possible.

Flash flooding is not currently forecast, but localized areas of flash flooding cannot be ruled out.

Heavy rain may create dangerous travel conditions:

  • New Yorkers are advised to limit travel and stay inside during periods of severe weather.
  • If you must travel, exercise caution. Do not drive your vehicle or walk into areas where water covers the roadway as the water depth may be too great to allow you to cross safely.
