Sandy #4 - STATUS UPDATE
Sandy is expected to impact our area starting this evening with the peak impact coming Monday and Tuesday. We can expect 3-8 inches of rain with winds 20-30 miles an hour or better with gusts of 40-50 miles per hour. This is a lot of rain in short time and will extend for 3 days. Power outage should be assumed and preparation made. Do this immediately.
Those who have secured boats for high water the wind will shift direction late Tuesday and we will experience very low tides. Tides in our immediate area will rise 2 feet above normal.
Make previsions for your animals that normally stay outside.
