THE BRONX - Bronx residents living and working along the coast say they are fearful of the high winds and tides as a nor'easter storm approaches the region.  

Employees at Paddy’s on the Bay bar and restaurant say they are used to just riding out storms, and say the establishment is fully operational as long as it doesn’t lose power.

Others took the time to move holiday decorations indoors so the wind does not blow them away.

Con Edison is also warning residents of the potential for power outages due to downed wires.

The utility company responded to downed telephone and internet wires that were lying across the street and halted an MTA bus in the Bronx earlier Monday.  

The full impact of the nor’easter is expected to peek into Tuesday.
