Another Superstorm?

Stay safe out there New York City, as another potential "superstorm" barrels our way today.  The storm, or rather, potential blizzard, "Nemo," may dump more than a foot of snow on our city streets tonight into tomorrow morning.

Be sure to check with the MTA frequently to ensure that your subway, bus or train line is running. Long Island Railroad and Metro North have added extra afternoon trains so that commuters who may be able to depart work early will be accommodated.

While public schools did open today, all after-school activities are cancelled. Many city events scheduled to take place tonight and tomorrow are also cancelled. Please confirm before venturing out.

Looking out my window now, I see flurries turning into rain. But weather officials confirm that this could end up being another "storm of the century," quite literally, the likes of which our region has not seen in a hundred years. Take extra precaution and stock up on food and necessities in case of power outages.

Depending on your wireless carrier, you may already be getting severe weather alert messages from the National Weather Service on your cell phone (read more about this here). If you are not, visit to sign up for their alert service.
