Hurricane Sandy, which has left a path of destruction in the Caribbean, is now making its way north. Sandy has the potential to collide with a cold front, creating a “super storm” that brings widespread, damaging winds, heavy rain, major coastal flooding and power outages to our area. The storm is huge and its path is becoming more clear with the East Coast as its target.
“The American Red Cross is working closely with our government and community partners throughout our region to determine where shelters may need to be opened,” said Josh Lockwood, Greater New York Region CEO. “Just as we are preparing for Sandy, we urge everyone in the Greater New York region to prepare now as well.”
