Major Winter Storm Warning for New York City and Tri-State Area: Floodgates Opened, State of Emergency Declared, and Schools Dismissed Early

The National Weather Service has announced that a major winter storm is set to hit parts of New York City and the tri-state area, bringing heavy rain, strong wind gusts, and potential flooding. A severe warning of high winds has been issued for areas of New York City, while other regions within the three states are likely to face the threat of flooding.

As a means of preparation, the mayors of Wayne, Pompton Lakes and Lincoln Park in New Jersey have requested the floodgates on Pompton Lakes Dam to be opened. This proactive measure aims to mitigate the potential impact of the storm by preventing downstream flooding.

In response to this imminent threat, a state of emergency is set to be implemented across New Jersey from 5 p.m. Tuesday. The incoming storm, while not expected to bring snow, is set to bring heavy rain and powerful winds, increasing the possibility of floods and potentially hazardous conditions across the Garden State.

Several alerts for flooding and high winds have already been issued by the National Weather Service for Tuesday. In anticipation of the major flooding and potential power outages, several school districts, including Montclair, have issued early dismissals.

This severe weather serves as a reminder of the unpredictable nature of winter storms and re-emphasizes the necessity for proper preparation and emergency plans in such circumstances.
