Event

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) on Wednesday, July 8, issued a weather forecast that a low-pressure disturbance off the coast of North Carolina is expected to strengthen into a tropical system in the next 48 hours. As of the 20:00 (EDT local time) advisory on July 8, NOAA has recorded the disturbance to be approximately 97 km (60 mi) east-southeast of Wilmington and is expected to move north-northeastward along the mid-Atlantic and New England coasts over the upcoming days. The system is expected to produce locally heavy rainfall with the possibility of flash flooding on coastal areas along its route.

Associated flooding, infrastructure damage, power outages, and transportation disruptions are possible in the region over the coming days. Up-to-date information can be found on the NHC website here.

Advice

Individuals in the affected areas are advised to monitor local weather reports, adhere to instructions issued by local authorities, anticipate adverse weather and power and transportation disruptions, and remember that running water can be dangerous - 15 cm (6 in) is enough to knock over an adult - and never drive through flooded streets; floodwater may also contain wastewater and chemical products.
