Coastal residents brace for flooding from nor'easter
Residents living in coastal areas of the Bronx braced themselves Monday for the threat of storm-related flooding.
Monday's nor'easter brought heavy rains and high winds to the New York City area.
The Edgewater Park community had previously been impacted by Hurricane Irene and Superstorm Sandy. Residents said the storm's effects were noticed early when a boat washed ashore sometime Sunday night.
Orchard Beach also saw extremely choppy water caused by high gusts of wind.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo advised New Yorkers to prepare accordingly by learning the safest route from homes and businesses to high ground, in addition to keeping a stockpile of canned food, medicine, first aid supplies and water.
The National Weather Service issued a high wind warning for all of New York City through Tuesday morning.
