Hurricane Henri Is Approaching the Northeast

NYC Declares State Of Emergency

Keep your eyes on the weather this weekend, if you are flying in the Northeast, as Hurricane Henri approaches the area.

Henri was upgraded from a tropical storm to a hurricane on Saturday. The storm brings with it heavy winds, rain, and storm surge. The hurricane is likely to make landfall between Long Island and Southern New England Sunday.
The National Weather Service reports the most likely time of arrival of tropical-storm-force winds for southern New England to be Sunday morning.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio declared a state of emergency Saturday afternoon ahead of the storm. Residents of the Northeast should keep in mind that the area is already deeply saturated and a call has been put out to be aware of potential flooding. Henri is a slow-moving system that is set to leave a lot of rain in its path.

Narragansett Bay and the south coasts of RI and MA are most likely to be affected by the surge flooding, while CT and western and central MA are most at risk for rainfall flooding.

With this storm system, New England is facing its first direct hurricane landfall in thirty years. According to an image acquired from NASA’s Terra satellite at 11:45 AM ET on August 20, 2021, Henri was located about 400 miles southeast of Charleston, SC moving northwest. Sustained winds measured 65 miles per hour, 9 miles short of a category-1 hurricane.

As of 17:00 ET Saturday, Hurricane Henri was located 335 miles south of Montauk Point, NY with 75mph winds and moving north at 18 mph.
