Hurricane Jose Local Statement Advisory Number 57...CORRECTED
National Weather Service New York NY  AL122017
1208 PM EDT Tue Sep 19 2017

This product covers Southeast New York, Northeast New Jersey, and Southern Connecticut

**Tropical Storm Watch Remains in Effect for Suffolk County, Long Island**

NEW INFORMATION
---------------

* CHANGES TO WATCHES AND WARNINGS:
    - Tropical Storm Watches have been discontinued for Southern New Haven,
      Middlesex and New London counties.

* CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS:
    - A Tropical Storm Watch remains in effect for all of Suffolk County.

* STORM INFORMATION:
    - About 320 miles south-southeast of New York City NY or about
      320 miles south of Montauk Point NY
    - 36.5N 71.7W
    - Storm Intensity 75 mph
    - Movement North or 355 degrees at 7 mph

SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------

Hurricane Jose will continue to track slowly north and then
northeast later today, passing to the southeast of the area late
tonight into Wednesday as a tropical storm. The system will be close
enough for potential impacts.

The main hazard will be coastal flooding with 1 to 2 feet of
inundation expected during the times of high tide tonight into
Wednesday. Localized inundation of up to around 2 1/2 feet is possible
in the typically more vulnerable locations across Peconic and
Gardiners Bays.

Dangerous surf will build to 10 to 15 feet through Wednesday. This
will result in widespread dune erosion and washovers.

Tropical Storm Force winds are possible tonight into Wednesday with
sustained winds of 30 to 40 mph and gusts up to 50 mph.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

* SHORELINE HAZARDS:
Prepare for dangerous surf of 10 to 15 ft causing widespread dune
erosion, and localized dune overwashes along the Atlantic beachfront.

* SURGE:
Prepare for locally hazardous surge having possible impacts across
Suffolk county. Potential impacts in this area include:
    - Localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along
      immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots.
    - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become overspread
      with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous in places where
      surge water covers the road.
    - Widespread beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes, mainly
      in usually vulnerable locations. Strong and frequent rip
      currents.

* WIND:
Prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts. Potential
impacts include:
    - Possible tree limbs broken off. Some fences and roadway signs
      blown over.
    - A few roads impassable from debris. Hazardous driving conditions
      on bridges and other elevated roadways.
    - Scattered power and communications outages.

* FLOODING RAIN:
Prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts. Potential impacts include:
    - Small streams, creeks and canals may become swollen and could
      overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
      vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Some brief road and bridge closures.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
----------------------------------

If you live in a place that is particularly vulnerable to high wind,
such as a mobile home, a boat, plan to move to safe shelter. Take
enough supplies for you and your family for several days.

If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as
near the ocean, in a low lying or poor drainage area, or near an
already swollen river, plan to move to safe shelter on higher ground

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Listen for possible changes to the
forecast.

* ADDITIONAL SOURCES OF INFORMATION:
- For information on appropriate preparations see ready.gov
- For information on creating an emergency plan see getagameplan.org
- For additional disaster preparedness information see redcross.org

NEXT UPDATE
-----------

The next local statement will be issued by the National Weather
Service in New York NY around 6 PM, or sooner if conditions warrant.

...TROPICAL STORM WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT...

* LOCATIONS AFFECTED
    - Mastic Beach
    - Hampton Bays
    - Montauk Point

* WIND
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Below tropical storm force wind
        - Peak Wind Forecast: 25-35 mph with gusts to 45 mph

    - CURRENT THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Elevated
        - The wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          tropical storm force wind of 39 to 57 mph.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited wind
          impacts. Remaining efforts to secure properties should now
          be brought to completion.
        - Hazardous wind is possible. Failure to adequately shelter
          may result in serious injury. Move to safe shelter before
          the wind becomes hazardous.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Limited
        - Damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
          mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
        - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
          uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees
          are shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown
          over.
        - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within
          urban or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving
          conditions on bridges and other elevated roadways.
        - Scattered power and communications outages.

* STORM SURGE
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Localized storm surge possible
        - Peak Storm Surge Inundation: The potential for 1-3 feet
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - Window of concern: through early Wednesday afternoon

    - CURRENT THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Elevated
        - The storm surge threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency considerations should posture for a reasonable
          threat for peak storm surge flooding of greater than 1 foot
          above ground.
        - To be safe, stay away from storm surge flooding capable of
          limited impacts.
        - Localized inundation is possible. Continue to follow the
          instructions of local officials.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Unfolding
        - Potential impacts from the main surge event are unfolding.

* FLOODING RAIN
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST:
        - Peak Rainfall Amounts: Additional around 1 inch

    - CURRENT THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Elevated
        - The flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from
          the previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          minor flooding where peak rainfall totals are near amounts
          conducive for localized flash flooding and rapid inundation.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited flooding
          rain impacts.
        - Localized flooding is possible. If flood related watches
          and warnings are issued, heed recommended actions.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Limited
        - Localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
        - Rivers and streams may quickly rise with swifter currents.
          Small streams, creeks and canals may become swollen and
          could overflow in spots.
        - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in
          usually vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding
          of water occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor
          drainage areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds
          become near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief road and
          bridge closures.

* TORNADO
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST:
        - Situation is unfavorable for tornadoes

    - CURRENT THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: None
        - The tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans need not include a threat for tornadoes.
          Showers and thunderstorms with strong gusty winds may still
          occur.
        - Little to no preparations needed to guard against tropical
          tornadoes.
        - Ensure readiness for the next tropical tornado event.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Little to None
        - Little to no potential impacts from tornadoes.
