He is also urging the public to be prepared and alert in response to the forecast, which shows that Isaias could sweep through parts of New York City and Long Island as well as the Hudson Valley. "We're having state assets moved as we speak. Generator pumps, large scale vehicles that can handle high water, and we put out a notice to local governments that they should be getting ready also but homeowners who are in flood prone areas should also start to get ready."

Cuomo says his experts are looking closely at the impacts of the storm on our region. "We have to watch the Hudson Valley. Talking about a possible three inches of rain. Three inches of rain is a lot of rain in the Mid-Hudson."
