Gotham Brokerage Prepares New Yorkers for Winter Storm
New York City awaits the snowstorm with 18-24 inches expected over the next two days, winds at 20-30 miles per hour
A potentially devastating blizzard is expected to hit the New York City area today and tomorrow, according to the National Weather Service. Forecasters have called for 18-24 inches of snow accumulation and winds of 20-30 miles per hour.
This is the forecast you dreamed of as a child, full of promises of snowball fights and sledding. But grownups dread the thought of storms damaging the homes that provide shelter and carry the value of much of our life’s work.
A buildup of snow can cause a roof to collapse. A power outage caused by high winds, snow or ice could lead to pipes freezing and bursting. Ice can get into the cracks in your walls, causing further damage. It became apparent in 2013 what storms could do when insured losses totalled $1.9 billion dollars — the third most costly type of natural disaster, after hurricanes and tornadoes.
