Minor to moderate coastal flooding is also likely along with dangerous surf. Potential impacts ----------------- * shoreline hazards: prepare for dangerous surf of 10 to 15 ft causing widespread dune erosion, and localized dune overwashes along the Atlantic beachfront. * Surge: prepare for locally hazardous surge having possible limited impacts across tidal portions of southeast New York and southern Connecticut. Potential impacts in this area include: - localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore. - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become overspread with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous in places where surge water covers the Road. * Wind: prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across southeast New York, northeast New Jersey, and southern Connecticut. Potential impacts include: - many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over. - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on bridges and other elevated roadways. - Scattered or isolated power and communications outages. * Flooding rain: prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible limited impacts across Long Island and southeastern Connecticut. Potential impacts include: - rivers, small streams, creeks and canals may become swollen and could overflow in spots. - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually vulnerable spots.
