Severe Thunderstorm Watch Coming From Harlem To Hollis

July 13, 2017

The National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch from Harlem to Hollis until 9:00 PM. Strong winds and heavy rain are possible. 
A Severe Thunderstorm Watch means conditions are favorable for severe thunderstorms to occur in and close to the watch area. Persons within these areas should be on the lookout for threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible warnings. Exercise caution when walking, driving, or biking.

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.
