    DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
    ------------------------------
    AT 800 AM EDT...1200 UTC...THE CENTER OF HURRICANE SANDY WAS LOCATED
    NEAR LATITUDE 32.1 NORTH...LONGITUDE 73.1 WEST. SANDY IS MOVING
    TOWARD THE NORTHEAST NEAR 10 MPH...17 KM/H...AND THIS GENERAL
    MOTION IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE THROUGH TODAY. A TURN TOWARD THE
    NORTH AND THEN NORTHWEST IS FORECAST ON MONDAY. ON THE FORECAST
    TRACK...THE CENTER OF SANDY WILL MOVE PARALLEL TO THE SOUTHEAST
    COAST OF THE UNITED STATES TODAY AND TONIGHT...AND APPROACH THE
    COAST OF THE MID-ATLANTIC STATES BY MONDAY NIGHT.

    MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS ARE NEAR 75 MPH...120 KM/H...WITH HIGHER
    GUSTS. LITTLE CHANGE IN STRENGTH IS FORECAST DURING THE NEXT
    COUPLE OF DAYS...AND SANDY IS EXPECTED TO BRING HURRICANE-FORCE
    WINDS TO PORTIONS OF THE MID-ATLANTIC STATES.

    HURRICANE-FORCE WINDS EXTEND OUTWARD UP TO 175 MILES...280 KM...FROM
    THE CENTER...AND TROPICAL-STORM-FORCE WINDS EXTEND OUTWARD UP TO
    520 MILES...835 KM. A SHIP LOCATED ABOUT 100 MILES SOUTH OF

    THE MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE RECENTLY REPORTED BY NOAA AND AIR FORCE
    RESERVE HURRICANE HUNTER AIRCRAFT WAS 951 MB...28.08 INCHES.


    HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
    ----------------------
    WIND...TROPICAL STORM CONDITIONS ARE SPREADING ACROSS THE COAST OF
    NORTH CAROLINA IN THE TROPICAL STORM WARNING AREA...AND THESE
    SHOULD CONTINUE THROUGH TODAY. GALE FORCE WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO
    ARRIVE ALONG PORTIONS OF THE MID-ATLANTIC COAST LATER TODAY...AND
    REACH LONG ISLAND AND SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND BY MONDAY MORNING. WINDS
    AT OR NEAR HURRICANE FORCE COULD REACH THE MID-ATLANTIC STATES...
    INCLUDING LONG ISLAND...BY LATE MONDAY.

    STORM SURGE...THE COMBINATION OF AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS STORM SURGE
    AND THE TIDE WILL CAUSE NORMALLY DRY AREAS NEAR THE COAST TO BE
    FLOODED BY RISING WATERS. THE WATER COULD REACH THE FOLLOWING
    DEPTHS ABOVE GROUND IF THE PEAK SURGE OCCURS AT THE TIME OF HIGH
    TIDE...

    NC SOUTH OF SURF CITY...1 TO 3 FT
    NC NORTH OF SURF CITY INCLUDING PAMLICO/ALBEMARLE SOUNDS...4 TO 6 FT
    SE VA AND DELMARVA INCLUDING LOWER CHESAPEAKE BAY...2 TO 4 FT
    UPPER AND MIDDLE CHESAPEAKE BAY...1 TO 2 FT
    LONG ISLAND SOUND AND RARITAN BAY INCLUDING NEW YORK HARBOR...6 TO
    11 FT
    ELSEWHERE FROM OCEAN CITY MD TO THE CT/RI BORDER...4 TO 8 FT
    CT/RI BORDER TO THE SOUTH SHORE OF CAPE COD INCLUDING BUZZARDS
    BAY...3 TO 5 FT

    SURGE-RELATED FLOODING DEPENDS ON THE RELATIVE TIMING OF THE SURGE
    AND THE TIDAL CYCLE...AND CAN VARY GREATLY OVER SHORT DISTANCES.
    GIVEN THE LARGE WIND FIELD ASSOCIATED WITH SANDY...ELEVATED WATER
    LEVELS COULD SPAN MULTIPLE TIDE CYCLES RESULTING IN REPEATED AND
    EXTENDED PERIODS OF COASTAL AND BAYSIDE FLOODING. IN ADDITION...
    ELEVATED WATERS COULD OCCUR FAR REMOVED FROM THE CENTER OF SANDY.
    FURTHERMORE...THESE CONDITIONS WILL OCCUR REGARDLESS OF WHETHER
    SANDY IS A TROPICAL OR POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE. FOR INFORMATION
    SPECIFIC TO YOUR AREA...PLEASE SEE PRODUCTS ISSUED BY YOUR LOCAL
    NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE OFFICE.

    RAINFALL...RAINFALL TOTALS OF 3 TO 6 INCHES ARE EXPECTED OVER FAR
    NORTHEASTERN NORTH CAROLINA WITH ISOLATED MAXIMUM TOTALS OF 8 INCHES
    POSSIBLE. RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 4 TO 8 INCHES ARE EXPECTED OVER

  • Full statement from MTA

    The MTA has been directed by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to begin an orderly shutdown and suspension of all subway, bus and commuter railroad service at 7 p.m. Sunday. The decision was made to protect customers, employees and equipment from the wrath of Hurricane Sandy as the strong storm continues its march up the east coast.

    MTA Chairman and CEO Joseph J. Lhota announced that service on NYC Transit subways will be curtailed beginning at 7 p.m., and the bus network within the following two hours. Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North Railroad will start their finals trains by 7 p.m. from terminal locations. Subway and rail road stations will be closed after the last trains pass through stations. Outbound Access-A-Ride trips are being scheduled only until 12 p.m. today, and return trips will continue until 5 p.m. Any previously scheduled trips after that time, including subscription trips, are canceled.

    Customers are advised to adjust their plans and travel early in the day as possible and not wait until the last train or bus. Anyone who does not leave for their destination before 7 p.m. runs the risk of being stranded when service is suspended.

    The MTA Hurricane Plan calls for suspending service hours before the approach of winds of 39 mph and higher. That gives MTA crews time to prepare rail and subway cars, buses, tunnels, yards and buildings for the storm, then return to safety. Winds of 39 mph and higher are predicted to reach the metropolitan region during the predawn hours Monday.

    The MTA has been preparing to suspend service for days by readying recovery equipment, clearing drainage areas, moving vehicles from low-lying areas at bus depots and rail yards and sealing some tunnel access points.

    The duration of the service suspension is unknown, and there is no timetable for restoration. Service will be restored only when it is safe to do so, after careful inspections of all equipment and tracks. Even with minimal damage this is expected to be a lengthy process.

    Customers and the media should monitor this website or call 511 for the most current service information.
