Flooded basements and storm damaged homes and businesses may follow Winter Storm Nemo, even in Eastchester NY 10709

 

 

Nemo winter storm flood wind damage eastchester ny 10709 westchester nyHere we go again…shades of wind and snow storm that flooded and damaged homes and businesses in Westchester County in 2010.  It’s reminding some local forecasters of that damaging storm because of the amount of snow expected overnight Friday into Saturday.

 



This storm is being called a “historic blizzard” and will sweep across our part of the Mid-Atlantic and track north to hammer Boston this Friday.  It’s a biggie because the storm now dubbed NEMO will bring up to two feet of snow to NYC, plus rain and tropical storm force winds!  So, it’s expected to be a storm of "historic" proportions, beginning with light flurries on Thursday night and lasting through Saturday morning in Eastchester, NY 10709 and the entire region.

 


Along the way, Nemo is expected to dump snow, sleet, rain and hurricane-force winds in coastal states from Connecticut to Maine this weekend.  We are being advised to start stocking up on food, batteries and supplies because things could get pretty bad out there and in our homes or businesses.

 

Here are some answers to questions you may have – without being a scaredy cat here -- about “Winter Storm Nemo,” our first nor'easter of 2013:

Snow Amounts?:   Southern New England is expected to be in the eye of this storm, may get 24 inches of snow by Saturday.  Areas of Long Island are under a “Blizzard Watch,” as are Connecticut and Rhode Island, according to national weather reports.   The lower Hudson Valley is expected to get about 6 to 18 inches because we are on the “snow and rain line” along with New York City -- as of 6p Thursday night at my office checking #'s.


One report  has Nemo matching the force and impact of the historic blizzard of 1978 – that dumped two feet of snow throughout New York and New England and had hurricane force winds.  Other weather analysts say Nemo could be “one of the 10 most powerful storms in the history of this region.”


Forecasters Damage Predictions:  Forecasters are warning about "widespread power outages with winds of this force," including the pros at weather.com.  Highways could be paralyzed, especially near coastal areas, so plan your commute accordingly.  Our neighbors in Connecticut and Long Island communities could see coastal flooding, just as they recover from “Sandy.”  In fact, some forecasters are giving “Nemo” 10 out of 10 on the national winter storm index.  Count on lots of delays on highways, bridges and at airports, in and out of the Mid-Atlantic and New England states, through Sunday.

Schedule?:    The northern half of this “perfect winter storm” will move through Michigan and move into upstate New York on Thursday night.  By Friday night, we need to be prepared for heavy snow, rain and tropical force winds that will pound  New England.  That’s after Nemo the Nor’Easter tracks across Eastchester, NY 10709 and hammers other towns and hamlets in the Lower Hudson Valley. These conditions will continue through Saturday morning.

 

A name by any other storm….the name may be cute, but this storm may not be by Saturday:  Back in 2010, our restoration company staff called that winter snow event “The storm with no name.” 

Not very fun or sexy, right?  It helps state and local officials as well as first and 2nd responders like us to have a name…by any other name.  It’s shorter to have a one word storm name, plus there is no confusion about the storm in conversation, its unique “personality” and differences between one winter/summer storm or another.  This one was apparently named “Nemo" because it is expected to be really nasty!

Yes, I'm definitely staying home today/tomorrow.  That is so funny that they are naming it Nemo.  I didn't realize they are naming snow storms now.

Joanna:  So glad that you're home in your bunny slippers, lady, and safe!  It's crazy slushy out here and, per usual, folks are overdriving the "snizzle" on the roads -- heard a weatherman call it that for drizzle/snow...don't ya' love it.  Our crews are out in this on frozen pipes damages and a fire cleanup...rear wheel drive -- they are SOOO great!  Stay safe and warm...

 

Thanks WofW Working together - so appreciate the comment and glad that you're home and safe through Saturday.  It's just not safe out here. As for named storms, The Weather Channel started this and now most media and many others are using names that The National Weather Service has not approved (is not happy about.)  Check out this NY Times article...over coffee, so funny!:  http://mediadecoder.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/02/07/a-fish-er-storm-named-nemo/

 

Valerie:  So glad that you are on top of your mountains of snow up there...we have inches of slush already and am at our office today.  Our crews are cleaning frozen pipe and a couple of fire damages and we're here when our guys are out there.  Just glad that your Ottawa crews stay ahead of it and you stay warm lady...thanks for the comment.
