Tropical Depression Claudette is heading to New York
Tropical Depression Claudette is expected to strengthen again and move up the east coast after killing 13. Severe weather conditions are forecast for the Hudson Valley.
Tropical Storm Claudette killed at least 13 people in Alabama over the weekend. The North Carolina area is bracing for possible tornadoes on Monday. After hitting North Carolina, the storm is expected to continue to move up the east coast.
Claudette has been downgraded to a tropical depression but is expected to regain strength and head for the east coast, reports NPR.
Claudette is expected to slowly strengthen over the Carolinas as it approaches the Mid-Atlantic coast from the west, according to the National Weather Service. Tropical storm conditions are expected to develop along coastal areas of the Carolinas before the storm heads to the Atlantic Ocean.
Claudette is expected to move east off the North Carolina coast on Monday, then move northeast over the western Atlantic off the northeast coast past New York City and head to the Canadian Maritimes by Wednesday, reports the National Weather Service.
The National Hurricane Centers’ storm track places Claudette over the Atlantic Ocean near New York from Monday to Tuesday.
