Weather Alert  

"Hurricane Statement" This product covers southeast New York, northeast New Jersey, and southern Connecticut **tropical storm watch remains in effect for Suffolk County, long island** New information --------------- * changes to watches and warnings: - tropical storm watches have been discontinued for southern New Haven, Middlesex and New London counties. * Current watches and warnings: - a tropical storm watch remains in effect for all of Suffolk County. * Storm information: - about 320 miles south-southeast of New York City NY or about 320 miles south of Montauk Point NY - 36.5n 71.7w - storm intensity 75 mph - movement north or 355 degrees at 7 mph Situation overview ------------------ Hurricane Jose will continue to track slowly north and then northeast later today, passing to the southeast of the area late tonight into Wednesday as a tropical storm. The system will be close enough for potential impacts. The main hazard will be coastal flooding with 1 to 2 feet of inundation expected during the times of high tide tonight into Wednesday. Localized inundation of up to around 2 1/2 feet is possible in the typically more vulnerable locations across Peconic and gardiners bays. Dangerous surf will build to 10 to 15 feet through Wednesday. This will result in widespread dune erosion and washovers. Tropical storm force winds are possible tonight into Wednesday with sustained winds of 30 to 40 mph and gusts up to 50 mph. 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 impacts across Suffolk County. Potential impacts in this area include: - localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots. - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become overspread with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous in places where surge water covers the Road. - Widespread beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes, mainly in usually vulnerable locations. Strong and frequent rip currents. * Wind: prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts. Potential impacts include: - possible tree limbs broken off. Some fences and roadway signs blown over. - A few roads impassable from debris. Hazardous driving conditions on bridges and other elevated roadways. - Scattered power and communications outages. * Flooding rain: prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible limited impacts. Potential impacts include: - 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. A few places where rapid ponding of water occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage areas. Some brief Road and bridge closures. Precautionary/preparedness actions ---------------------------------- If you live in a place that is particularly vulnerable to high wind, such as a Mobile home, a boat, plan to move to safe shelter. Take enough supplies for you and your family for several days. If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as near the ocean, in a low lying or poor drainage area, or near an already swollen river, plan to move to safe shelter on higher ground Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for official storm information. Listen for possible changes to the forecast. * Additional sources of information: - for information on appropriate preparations see ready.Gov - for information on creating an emergency plan see getagameplan.Org - for additional disaster preparedness information see Redcross.Org Next update ----------- The next local statement will be issued by the National Weather Service in New York NY around 6 PM, or sooner if conditions warrant. 1208 PM EDT Tue Sep 19 2017 This product covers southeast New York, northeast New Jersey, and southern Connecticut **tropical storm watch remains in effect for Suffolk County, long island** New information --------------- * changes to watches and warnings: - tropical storm watches have been discontinued for southern New Haven, Middlesex and New London counties. * Current watches and warnings: - a tropical storm watch remains in effect for all of Suffolk County. * Storm information: - about 320 miles south-southeast of New York City NY or about 320 miles south of Montauk Point NY - 36.5n 71.7w - storm intensity 75 mph - movement north or 355 degrees at 7 mph Situation overview ------------------ Hurricane Jose will continue to track slowly north and then northeast later today, passing to the southeast of the area late tonight into Wednesday as a tropical storm.

Bellmore, NY - June 17, 2014 - The Long Island International Film Expo (LIIFE) is lining up its celebrity slate for the 17th installment at the Bellmore Movies on July 9 – 17, 2014.  New and exciting events have been added this year to enrich the vibrant LIIFE film community that has been fostered over the past 16 years.
 
“We’re showing 158 short and feature-length independent films from 32 countries, including 37 films from right here on Long Island,” says the festival director, Debra Markowitz.  “We’re waiting on responses from celebrity guests, but what we have in place is a great selection of stimulating panels to go along with our strong film line-up.”
 
The opening night feature is The Historian, starring William Sadler, John Cullum, and Glynnis O’Connor. Festival premieres include Cigarette Soup produced by Larry Strong of Hempstead and filmed partially at Nickerson Beach, and director Fred Carpenter’s Charlie Mantle starring Robert Funaro, Armand Assante, Sean Young, Robert Clohessy and Jackie Martling, written and produced by Long Island’s Ed Wahl.
 
LIIFE 2014 panels include festival favorites “The Write Stuff” Screenwriting Panel and the popular “Perils of Being an Independent Filmmaker” Breakfast Panel both on Saturday, July 12 and moderated by Mitchell Bard of Snapper Films.
 
The highly sought after “Film Financing and Distribution Panel” on Sunday, July 13 is moderated by Marc Jacobson of Direction by Appointment and features a panel of industry experts.  New to the line-up is “How to Improv When the Unexpected Happens,” on Saturday, July 12.  This panel hosted by Katha Cato of the Queens World Film Festival will be of particular interest to actors. “How to Use the New York State Tax Credit” presented by Marc Jacobson takes place on  Sunday, July 13.  
 
The “So You Want to Be an Actor Workshop” has been added to the Sunday, July 13 schedule in response to numerous requests for information on how to begin an acting career and how to seek challenging roles.  Actor/Coach Joseph Halsey will share his experiences in television (Law & Order: SVU, America’s Most Wanted, The Cosby Show) and independent film (Maltese Murder Mystery, Dear J, Junkie Heaven, Leaving) during this insightful session.
 
All panels are FREE, except for the Filmmaker Breakfast Panel which costs $5 to attend.
 
Exclusively for local filmmakers, LIIFE will present the NY LOVES FILM ROADSHOW featuring the New York State Governor’s Office for Motion Picture and Television Development team for a roundtable discussion on producing films in New York State – tax credits, location scouting, locating stages and crew are topics that will be addressed. Whether you’re a first time filmmaker or a veteran producer looking to catch up on what's new in the industry, this informal Q&A session will give participants the opportunity to Meet Team NY and hear firsthand what New York State has to offer.  This session is limited to 25 local filmmakers.  To sign up, please contact Debra Markowitz at dmarkowitz@nassaucountyny.gov.
