Tropical Storm Florence Guidance for Providers of Health and Residential Care

Lisa Volk in Clinical & Quality

The New York City (NYC-EM) and New York State (NYSOEM) Offices of Emergency Management are closely monitoring the forecasted path of Tropical Storm Florence. Although it is too early to determine the final track of the storm, we are reminding providers of important preparedness measures to be taken in advance of any potential landfall. Tropical Storm Florence could grow in strength, bring high surf, storm surge flooding, tropical-storm force winds and power outages to areas of New York City, Long Island shoreline and the Lower Hudson Valley. See attached Advisory.
