Nassau braces for possible flooding in south shore communities due to Isaias
Nassau County is keeping a watchful eye on Isaias as it churns up the East Coast and is expected to impact the area on Tuesday.
Nassau County Executive Laura Curran says the county is under a tropical storm warning and they are cautioning swimmers that there are dangerous rip currents currently in the area.
The storm is expected to bring high tides with heavy rains and winds, possibly leading to flooding in South Shore communities.
The storm is expected to impact Nassau tomorrow afternoon and continue into the early hours Wednesday, packing winds of 40-50 mph with gusts up to 70 mph and dropping up to 3 inches of rain.
Curran warned of possible power outages and says the county's office of emergency management is monitoring the storm's path.
"We are in constant contact with local municipalities – utilities, the Red Cross and if evacuation becomes necessary, we have additional shelters available with PPE and social distancing," says Curran.
