Northeast Storm System Brings Floods, High Winds, and Power Outages 

Powerful storms disrupt holiday travel. 

The mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions of the nation have experienced heavy rain, gusty winds, and flash and coastal flooding over the weekend. The forecast shows the pattern continuing for another day. 

Flash flood emergencies have been declared. The National Weather Service issued flood watches for more than 42 million people in the eastern United States. Severe thunderstorm warnings have been accompanied by tornado warnings in some areas.

Tens of thousands of power outages have been reported across New England and other parts of the Northeast, and utility teams are unable to begin repairs to restore power until conditions improve. 

Highway travelers should expect road delays. Air travel could also be restricted by delays or cancelations. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Under Secretary Rick Spinrad as he heads the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
  • For Director Ken Graham as he oversees the National Weather Service.
  • For the state and local leaders as they endeavor to ensure residents are prepared and safe.
  • For first responders as they seek to assist people and for line workers as they attempt to restore power.
