"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: - none * current watches and warnings: - a tropical storm watch is in effect for all of Suffolk County. * Storm information: - about 290 miles south-southeast of New York City NY or about 270 miles south of Montauk Point NY - 37.2n 71.3w - storm intensity 75 mph - movement north-northeast or 25 degrees at 8 mph Situation overview ------------------ Hurricane Jose will continue to track slowly north and then northeast later tonight, passing to the southeast of the area. 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 7 to 13 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 7 to 13 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. 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 12 am EDT, or sooner if conditions warrant. 541 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: - none * current watches and warnings: - a tropical storm watch is in effect for all of Suffolk County. * Storm information: - about 290 miles south-southeast of New York City NY or about 270 miles south of Montauk Point NY - 37.2n 71.3w - storm intensity 75 mph - movement north-northeast or 25 degrees at 8 mph Situation overview ------------------ Hurricane Jose will continue to track slowly north and then northeast later tonight, passing to the southeast of the area.

Young Athletes Giving Back To The Hospital That Saved Their Coach’s Life

Manhasset, NY – June 29, 2017 - Kent Hitchcock of Manhasset, managing director at financial firm Morgan Stanley by day, has spent his spare time the past five years coaching the Long Island Edge, a local youth hockey club. 
 
In March of this year, Coach Hitchcock had guided his players to the big league- the Long Island Championship. It was the second period of a hotly-contested game, and the Edge was leading 3-1. Everything was looking good…until Hitchcock suddenly suffered a near-fatal heart attack while on the bench, bringing the game to a screeching halt as parents and players alike panicked and valiantly rushed to his aid.
 
Christopher Boisselle is a senior at Manhasset High School and has been playing with the Long Island Edge hockey club since he was about five years old; he’s been working with Hitchcock for the past five years, back when he first became coach of the team.
 
The fateful incident happened during the championship game of the Long Island finals, hosted in Dix Hills. According to Boisselle, Coach Hitchcock – only aged in his mid-50’s – started noticeably showing signs of distress minutes after the team had scored a big goal against the opposition.
 
“One of my teammates noticed that he was hunched over and was in discomfort,” he said. “Suddenly, he collapsed and everyone from my team that was on the bench – I was on the ice at the time – started flipping out and yelling at the ref to stop the game and asking the parents to call an ambulance.”
 
At that point, Hitchcock had ceased breathing; thankfully, several of the parents in attendance at the game were firefighters and EMTs, and they performed CPR and utilized a defibrillator on Hitchcock while they were waiting for an ambulance to arrive on the scene to whisk the coach away to a local area hospital.
 
According to Boisselle, watching this tragic event unfold before his very eyes was especially difficult to experience, as he and the Hitchcock family have been very close for a number of years.
 
“My parents go out to dinner with them regularly, and I'm friends with his son so I'm over the house all the time,” he said. “So seeing this happen to someone that I know so well was really traumatizing.”
 
Once stabilized, Hitchcock was transferred to the Sandra Atlas Bass Cardiology Department at Northwell North Shore University Hospital, where he was successfully operated upon; afterwards, his long road to recovery began. Due to the extraordinary efforts of hospital doctors and staff, Hitchcock is well on his way to making a complete recovery, and is currently living a relatively normal life once again, Boisselle said.
 
As for the aborted championship game, the Long Island Edge was winning 3-1 at the time of Coach Hitchcock's attack; the hockey league later awarded the Edge the Long Island Championship trophy as a gesture of goodwill, as well as in recognition of the fact that they were ahead on the scoreboard when the game was stopped.
 
For saving the life of their beloved coach, the Long Island Edge hockey team banded together to show their appreciation to Northwell North Shore University Hospital by organizing an "Edge Out Heart Disease" fundraising event, which is taking place on July 16th from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Port Washington Skating Center in Port Washington. All proceeds from the event going directly to the hospital, Boisselle said.
 
“We came up with the idea for the fundraiser in gratitude for the successful surgery, so we got together as a team and organized the event,” he said. “It's going to be an open skate for anybody who wants to come down and either learn how to skate, or just cool off from the summer heat. There's also going to be raffles and silent auctions and things like that. The team had been going around town asking the local businesses for donations and things for the raffle…among the things we have are two jerseys and two hockey sticks signed by the New York Islanders hockey team.”
 
At the moment, the fundraiser is being considered a one-time event, but if it is successful, the possibility of it reoccurring at some point in the future hasn't been completely ruled out, either.
 
Despite being forced to experience the suffering of someone that he considers a close family friend, Boisselle noted that at least some good has come out of Hitchcock's brush with death...the potentially tragic event saw the Long Island Edge team band together as one in order to perform their civic duty and repay what they saw as a debt to the hospital that saved their beloved coach’s life.
 
“We really owe so much to the hospital for everything they did for the coach and us, and it's the least we can do to give back to them,” he said. “This was a horrible event, but at least we were able to take something positive out of it and do something for the community.”
