Whether you are planning on going out on a camping trip or just relaxing at home with your family, you will want to make sure that you are aware of the latest severe thunderstorm warning update. Here are some tips on what you can do to prepare yourself for the storm.
Storms expected to be fast-moving
Several fast-moving storms are expected to hit the Northeast and mid-Atlantic on Monday, with severe weather also possible. The storms will bring heavy rain, lightning, and severe wind gusts.
The storms are expected to affect several states including Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Virginia, New Jersey, and Washington, D.C. The storms are expected to move east into the Appalachian Mountains. However, some models also indicate that the storms may not reach as far east as expected.
Storms are expected to hit the Northeast in the late afternoon and early evening hours. The storms will bring heavy rain, wind gusts, and snow. In addition to snow, people could experience flooding in some areas. The storms may also bring squall-like conditions to New York City during the evening rush hour.
Strong storms are expected to develop along the approaching cold front. The storms will sweep through the tri-state area well into the night. The storms are expected to continue east into the Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic. Several models indicate that the storms could move into southern Maryland and Washington, D.C. The storms may also hit the Jersey Shore, but they are expected to arrive late in the day.
The storms will be more widespread than previous days. The storms are expected to move east along the coast, moving into the Appalachian Mountains and Mid-Atlantic later on Monday. The storms could continue into the Mid-Atlantic on Tuesday, as well.
Avoid electrical wiring and appliances during a thunderstorm
During a thunderstorm, lightning can strike your home and cause damage to electrical wiring and appliances. This means that you must take steps to prevent a serious electrical injury or fire.
The best way to protect your equipment is to keep it off during a thunderstorm. This is because lightning can damage appliances that have been left plugged in. It’s also a good idea to unplug appliances before the storm arrives.
Some devices that are safe to use during a thunderstorm include cell phones and laptops. You should also consider installing a surge protector in your home. This will direct the excess electrical current into the ground to lessen the damage from surges.
Lightning can damage electrical wiring and appliances by causing an electrical spike. This spike can occur for a brief period of time, and it can cause serious damage to electrical equipment.
Lightning can also cause damage to water sources, which can be dangerous. You should avoid bathing, drinking, and taking a shower during a thunderstorm.
You should also avoid touching metal parts of your plumbing or light switches. You should also avoid leaning on concrete walls during a thunderstorm. You should also keep your head between your knees.
If you do experience a surge, you should unplug your equipment. You should also turn off the main circuit breaker.
Newark Airport announces flooding has led to the closure of a parking lot
Thousands of flights were canceled and delayed across the country Wednesday, as the impact of Hurricane Ida continued to take a toll on airports nationwide. The New York City area saw a major disruption as flooding from the storm flooded parts of the subway system, killing at least 22 people and destroying major infrastructure.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is ready to deal with significant delays during the storm. A spokesperson said that “the Port Authority has a full arsenal of equipment and personnel to handle the massive amount of traffic that will be affected by the storm, and the agency is prepared for major delays.”
A water pipe break at the airport sent three inches of water onto the floor of the terminal. The Port Authority has urged passengers to check with their airlines about their flight status.
The Port Authority has also said that the water pipe broke at about two p.m., which sent the water onto the floor of the baggage reclaim area. The water caused some of the machinery to break.
As of early this morning, the airport had resumed limited operations. The airport is trying to clear a backlog of flights and is working to get things back to normal.
