Damaging Wind Event for New England

The NWS is forecasting a major damaging wind event due to severe thunderstorms tomorrow in the Northeast. There is a significant risk of wind gusts above 60 mph in the yellow area and an enhanced risk in the orange area. 

I'll have more on this threat tomorrow morning. 

In the meantime, it is a good idea -- especially in the orange area -- to prepare for the power failures. These include:
  • Fill your auto with fuel. 
  • Extra cash (credit card machines do not work in power failures).
  • Special provisions for infirm friends or relatives, including power for medical devices and cooling for medicines such as insulin.
