Last Day To Prepare For Hurricane Sandy

Photo: Getty ImagesWhile Hurricane Sandy churns up the Eastern Seaboard, Southern Tier residents find themselves with only a few more hours to prepare for the impacts of this large and powerful storm.

While the exact affects of Sandy on the Southern Tier aren’t known, according to the National Weather Service, we can expect a long period of strong winds and heavy rain.  NWS officials say that at this time they do not expect devastating river flooding to occur but flash flooding and minor river flooding are likely.  Also, because of the expected long-lasting strong winds, widespread power outages are a certainty.

This storm should not be taken lightly.  Southern Tier residents are urged to take action now.  Stock up on water and non-perishable foods as well as batteries and flashlights.  Once you are satisfied that you and your family are prepared, check up on elderly family and neighbors to make sure they are prepared as well.

The National Weather Service in Binghamton, NY has issued a Flood Watch and High Wind Warning for most of the Southern Tier of New York.
