A powerful storm is brewing in the United States. Henry: Serious warnings, people save what they can

The US East Coast belt, including New York City, was put on alert for the approach of Storm Henry on Friday. It should become the first hurricane to hit the New England area in decades.

Forecasters warned of strong winds, the risk of flash floods and rising sea levels after the storm began to appear over the Atlantic. Henry is expected to hit mainland New England on Sunday.

Amplification is expected about the next day. Henry should turn into a hurricane tonight (Friday) or Saturday,” The US National Hurricane Center said in a recent report carried by Agence France-Presse.

Authorities in the New England region, which includes the US states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont, have alerted residents to prepare.

“We advise all residents to start storm preparations today and pay close attention to the local weather.” The office of Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker said.

According to the NHC, Storm Henry has a maximum sustained wind speed of nearly 110 kilometers per hour and, in addition to the New England states, is also threatening New York City. Precipitation is expected at 25 cm in some areas. ‘Storm can cause life-threatening waves’ It was also mentioned in the NHC report.

If Storm Henry intensifies, as meteorologists predict, and stays on its current path, it could be the first hurricane to hit New England in 30 years.

“The last hurricane to hit mainland New England was Bob in 1991,” ICRC spokesman Dennis Feltgen told AFP. This storm killed at least 17 people.
