Storm surges threaten with Hurricane "Henri" – a state of emergency declared for parts of New York

The US east coast is preparing for Hurricane “Henri”. A state of emergency has already been declared for parts of the state of New York.

New York – The first rains of hurricane “Henri” are already reaching the east coast of the USA. From Sunday morning onwards, storm surges could cause flooding. Several coastal states in the USA have been preparing for the arrival of the hurricane for days. Warnings were issued against storm surges in parts of New York City as well.

The hurricane * moved towards the east coast at a speed of 30 kilometers per hour and wind speeds of up to 120 kilometers per hour, as the US hurricane center in Miami announced in its latest situation report from Sunday 5 a.m. (local time).

Hurricane “Henri”: threatening storm surges

The island of Long Island off the US metropolis of New York and parts of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut could be affected by the storm surges *. “Henri” is expected to hit land in the course of Sunday morning or early afternoon in Long Island or southern New England, according to the hurricane center.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo had already declared a state of emergency for parts of the US state on Saturday. These included the city of New York, Long Island and a few other areas. In the USA, a state of emergency is often declared out of caution, because this means that responsibilities are shifted from the federal government to regional authorities.

Hurricane “Henri” threatens: “New Yorkers, please take this seriously”

“New Yorkers, please take this seriously, think of Hurricane Sandy,” Cuomo said at a press conference on Saturday. It is hoped that the effects of the hurricane expected for Sunday will not be as bad as in 2012, but it is not certain that it will turn out smoothly. For the city of New York, he only expects heavy rains and some light floods, said Cuomo.
