Hurricane “Henry” sets course for New York

The US weather services have been warning of the strongest storm to hit the US East Coast for nearly ten years. Strong gusts of wind, thunderstorms and power outages may occur. The country’s largest city will also be particularly affected.

Parts of the US East Coast, including New York, are preparing for one of the most powerful storms in nearly a decade. The US Hurricane Center (NHC) announced that Tropical Storm “Henry” should become a hurricane. Weather services have warned of dangerous gusts of wind, storm surge, heavy rain and flooding. “Henry” is due to hit land on Long Island or southern New England on Sunday.

Officials in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont called on people to prepare for the storm. In Massachusetts, parks and beaches have been told to remain closed from today through Monday. According to officials, the power supply of 300,000 people there could fail.

According to the NHC, “Henry” reaches winds of up to 110 kilometers per hour. Heavy rain is expected in New York and adjoining New England. It will be the first hurricane to directly hit the area in 30 years. In 1991, Hurricane “Bob” killed 17 people there. The last hurricane warning for New York was issued for Hurricane “Irene” in August 2011. A year later, Tropical Storm “Sandy” wreaked havoc, killing 44 people.
