Event

On Wednesday, August 5, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo declared a state of emergency for several counties of New York state in order to provide support following the passage of Tropical Storm Isaias. The counties covered by the declaration are Bronx, Dutchess, Kings, Nassau, New York, Orange, Putnam, Queens, Richmond, Rockland, Suffolk, and Westchester. As is standard procedure, the declaration also covers those counties bordering the ones stated in the declaration. The declaration facilitates the provision of resources to aid the clean-up operation. Over 900,000 people were left without power following the storm, around 700,000 of which still had not had power restored as of Wednesday, and the Governor has called for an investigation into how so many have been left without electricity.

Residual disruptions caused by the storm and continued power outages are expected in the near term.

Context

The Atlantic hurricane season runs from late May through to the end of November, with activity typically peaking in late August and early September. Numerous tropical storms form in the Atlantic Ocean during this period, with most affecting the Caribbean, the Gulf of Mexico, and the east coast of the United States. Although communities in the region are generally well prepared for adverse weather conditions during the hurricane season, severe storms bring a significant risk of flooding and infrastructural damage

Advice

Those in the affected areas are advised to monitor local weather reports, anticipate transportation disruptions, confirm road conditions before setting out, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
