Dear Commons Community,
All the talk today will be on Storm Nemo. How many inches of snow? How fierce will be the winds? Will there be power outages? Here is a statement from The National Weather Service which has issued a blizzard warning in New York City, in effect from 6 a.m. Friday to 1 p.m. Saturday.
New Yorkers can expect anywhere from 10 to 14 inches of snow, and strong winds with gusts up to 45 miles per hour.
According to the NWS, the strongest winds and snows will occur Friday evening into Saturday evening.
People are encouraged to stay off the road as visibility could reach near zero with white-out conditions.
Downed limbs could also cause some power outages across the city.
“We are taking this storm seriously,” said Jerome Hauer, of Commmunity Homeland Security and Emergency Services. “You should take this storm seriously. This is a very dangerous storm that will make travel from Friday night until Saturday morning almost impossible,”
Stay dry! Stay Warm! Stay Safe!
