Event

A campaign rally for President Donald Trump, which was scheduled to take place at Portsmouth International Airport (PSM) in New Hampshire on Saturday, July 11, has been delayed due to the now categorized Post-Tropical Cyclone Fay. The rally, which was due to start at 20:00 (local time), will reportedly take place in one or two weeks' time instead, according to an official announcement.

Heavy rainfall and winds between 15-20mph (24-32kmph) are forecast over Portsmouth for July 11, with the storm being downgraded twice from a tropical storm to a post-tropical cyclone early Saturday morning. Fay had reportedly prompted the closure of beaches and flooded shore town streets in New Jersey after it made landfall on Friday, July 10. It weakened once it hit land and is expected to dissipate Sunday, forecasters have said.

Advice

Those traveling via PSM are advised to re-confirm the status of their flight prior to travel. Travelers are advised to monitor weather-related developments through local media closely and follow any directives issued by local authorities. Motorists are advised to exercise heightened caution on the roads due to likely hazardous driving conditions resulting from the storm.
