Tucked away on the west side of the small town of Broad Channel in the middle of Jamiaca Bay is a narrow, dead end, street that goes by the name of West 12th Road. Those of us who live there know that the nice part about living in a small town is that when you are not quite sure what is going on, someone else always does! [Peter J.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for southeast New York.

The remains of Florence are currently forecast to bring one to one
and one half inches of rain to the region, with locally higher
amounts possible, from Monday afternoon into early Tuesday evening.
While the most likely possibility is minor flooding from any heavy
rainfall, there is still a low chance for mainly localized flash
flooding.

There is potential for heavy rainfall and breezy conditions Monday
Night through Tuesday Night as the remnants of Tropical Storm
Florence move through the Northeast. There is still quite a bit of
uncertainty on the track of this remnant low, but a swath of 2 to 4
inches of rain with locally higher amounts is possible in its track.
Due to recent rain events, grounds are saturated and river and
streams flows are running well above normal. If the heavy rain swath
ends up over the local region, there will be potential for urban and
poor drainage flooding as well as flooding along quick responding
small rivers, streams, and creeks.

There is a high risk of rip currents on Saturday, and possibly on
Sunday.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A High Surf Advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area, producing rip currents and localized beach
erosion.

A Coastal Flood Advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars and near structures such as groins, jetties, and piers.
Talk to lifeguards and beach officials to learn about any surf
hazards and heed their advice. Pay attention to flags and posted
signs and swim in life guarded areas.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and
float, and do not swim against the current. If able, swim in a
direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the
shore and call or wave for help.
