…A TROPICAL STORM WARING IS IN EFFECT FOR OUR AREA
...COASTAL FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM TUESDAY EVENING THROUGH LATE TUESDAY NIGHT...
...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH LATE TUESDAY NIGHT...
A Tropical Storm Warning means tropical storm-force winds are expected somewhere within this area within the next 36 hours
LOCATIONS AFFECTED - Jamaica - Howard Beach - Rockaway Beach
The timing of the heaviest rainfall is late Tuesday morning into Tuesday evening across the entire area. The heaviest rainfall will likely be focused on the eastern counties. Particularly for Northeast New Jersey, the Lower Hudson Valley, and the NYC metro. Issues with runoff related flash flooding will be likely throughout urban environments.
Locally heavy rain is expected with a widespread 2 to 4 inches, with localized amounts up to 6 inches possible. The heaviest rain is most likely to occur across New York City, Northeast New Jersey and the Lower Hudson Valley early Tuesday morning through Tuesday evening.
The highest wind threat from Isaias should correspond to the eastern side of the storm which includes NYC and Long Island. The timing for this looks to be during late in the day on Tuesday and into Tuesday evening. One positive note is the storm is expected to accelerate to the north and northeast into Tuesday and Tuesday night. This may limit the duration of impactful winds to some extent for coastal sections. The preliminary guidance is suggesting the strongest winds may get up to 45 mph sustained along the immediate coast near the center of circulation, with perhaps gusts to around 60 mph or thereabouts across southern coastal sections of New York City and Long Island into Tuesday evening.
The effects from Tropical Storm Isaias are expected to diminish quickly from southwest to northeast across the area Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

Make a plan before a storm arrives to help keep you and your family safe. Prepare a Go Bag that you can grab in case you need to leave your home in a hurry. Be sure to pack hand sanitizer and extra face coverings in your Go Bag.
If you have a disability or access or functional need, make sure your plan addresses how your needs may affect your ability to evacuate, shelter in place, or communicate with emergency workers. Arrange help from family, friends, or service providers if you will need assistance. ... See MoreSee Less

For any cards that are made we can schedule a pick up, or drop off time can be set up so we can get these cards out to these amazing people who are putting their lives on the line during this pandemic. Also, any small “grab and go” snacks will also be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions you can reach out to us in messenger or contact the Fire house @ 718 843 9863.

The West Hamilton Beach Fire Department would like to assure our friends and neighbors that we remain dedicated in our commitment to ensure the safety and well-being of the community and our membership, as always. The Chiefs of Department, EMS personnel, and members of the West Hamilton Beach Fire Department are closely following all details related to the COVID-19 outbreak. The decisions and actions of your fire department are being guided by information and updates received from health officials on the local, state, and federal levels. We are prepared to deliver the professional fire and emergency medical services that the residents of the communities we serve have come to expect from our organization.
In order to continue to provide the outstanding level of care we do, we ask that if you are quarantined (mandatory or self-imposed) in your home due to possible or confirmed COVID-19 exposure, PLEASE notify The West Hamilton Beach V.F.D. with your address. This can be done either confidentially by calling us at 718-843-1716, Or by placing a sign/note on your front door to alert all firefighters and EMS personnel to take additional infection-prevention precautions before we enter your home or business. By doing this you can help stop possible spread of this virus. This NOT an order to quarantine/isolate yourself, we are not issuing any directive to that effect at this time. However we do ask that you notify us if you’ve chosen to take these precautions on your own, or if you were advised to by health officials.
As you have seen over the past few weeks, the information concerning this virus; whether it’s accurate or grossly embellished, can be terribly overwhelming. We urge you to follow the advice of medical professionals regarding best practices for avoiding and/or dealing with exposure to this virus.
We need to protect our crews so that they will be able to continue to meet the emergency needs of our community
Thank you for your cooperation on this matter.
