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.

Bethpage, NY - October 15, 2015 - The Nassau County SPCA urges all pet owners in the following communities: Atlantic Beach, Cedarhurst, Hewlett, Inwood, Lawrence, Long Beach, Valley Stream, Woodmere and Woodsburgh to keep all dogs and cats indoors or on leashes during the oral bait distribution and for about a week after.

The oral bait distribution has been completed today.

Keep Pets away from bait!!!

The original press release from the Nassau County Department of Health on its rabies baiting program is below.

Nassau County Department of Health Continues Rabies Baiting Program
Raccoon Rabies Vaccine to be distributed by Truck

Mineola, NY - Continuing the effort to eradicate raccoon rabies in Nassau County, Nassau County Department of Health and Cornell University will distribute raccoon rabies vaccine to protect residents from rabies. In response to the finding of several rabid raccoons in Brooklyn, raccoon rabies vaccine will be distributed in several additional communities. The distribution of rabies vaccine is part of a cooperative effort, "Wildlife Rabies Vaccination Program - Metropolitan New York" involving Nassau County Department of Health, New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Cornell University and several other agencies.

What: Rabies bait*, which is attractive to raccoons and includes a vaccine packet, will be distributed in raccoon habitats which include woods, bushes, streambeds, sewers and other areas.

*There is a label that clearly identifies the bait packet: "Rabies Vaccine Live Vaccinia Vector. Do Not Disturb, Merial, Inc Us Vet Lic. No. 298 1.877.722.6725."

When: Truck distribution will be conducted October 13th - October 16th, weather permitting.

Where: The additional areas of baiting will include all or parts of following communities: Atlantic Beach, Cedarhurst, Hewlett, Inwood, Lawrence, Long Beach, Valley Stream, Woodmere and Woodsburgh.

Why: Three terrestrial rabies cases were reported in southern Kings County last year. Rabies virus has been reported during most years in NYC, presenting a threat of eastward advance into Nassau County. Because of the threat to wildlife and domestic animals from terrestrial rabies, action needs to be taken quickly to prevent rabies from becoming endemic here in Nassau County.

How: Raccoons are attracted by the scent of the bait and are immunized when they eat the contents of the vaccine packet.

Recommendations: The New York State and Nassau County Departments of Health recommend:

  • To avoid inadvertent contact with the baits, supervise children's outdoor activities both during and for approximately one week following the bait distribution.
  • Keep all dogs and cats indoors or on leashes during the oral bait distribution and for about a week afterwards. This will allow raccoons to eat the vaccine-laden baits and become immunized and will decrease the chance of pets eating the baits.
  • The baits are not harmful to dogs or cats, but a pet may vomit if they eat a large number of them. Do not try to remove a packet from an animal's mouth.
  • Call immediately in the unlikely event that a child bites through the packet and ingests the liquid.
  • Wash hands immediately before calling to report the exposure if anyone comes in bare-hand contact with the bait (even if the bait is intact.) The bait packet itself will not harm anyone.
  • Call if you have seen your pet with bait in its mouth.
  • Whenever there is direct contact with the bait, contact the Poison Control Center at (212) 764-7667.
  • Remember that it is not possible to get rabies from the vaccine. The vaccine does not contain the rabies virus. It does contain attenuated vaccinia virus. This is a weakened version of the virus used in people for smallpox vaccination.
  • If residents find bait near their homes, but not in the open, leave it alone. The bait packets have a strong fishmeal smell that is not attractive to people or to most other animals.
  • If the bait is intact and out in the open where pets or children are more likely to encounter it, toss it into deeper cover under trees or bushes while wearing gloves or using a plastic bag.
  • Residents who see raccoons should NOT try to trap the raccoons themselves. Call a licensed trapper.

General Information: Rabies is a viral infection that affects the nervous system of raccoons and other mammals, including humans. The disease is essentially always fatal once clinical signs of infection occur. Vaccination will greatly decrease the chance of human and domestic animal contact with rabid raccoons. Rabies is transmitted by the bite of a rabid animal. However, the virus may also be transmitted when the saliva of a rabid animal comes into contact with cut, open, or scratched skin lesions.

For additional information regarding rabies and baiting, call the Nassau County Department of Health at (516) 227-9663 weekdays from 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM or visit the department website or the New York State Department of Health website.
