People in New York, Massachusetts, and other northeastern states should brace for power outages, urban flooding, and high winds.

According to The National Weather Service, "Flash flooding is a concern for much of the Northeast, but especially for northern New Jersey into southern New England where a slight risk of excessive rainfall is in effect today. The heavy rainfall can be treacherous as is, but the addition of high winds due to a tightening pressure gradient north of the system will mean compounding hazardous weather, particularly for travel."

Here are some videos of the worsening storm from around the Northeast:

Reports from NBC Boston indicate that hundreds of people are already without power due to strong winds and heavy rain. Also, 70 mph winds are forecasted in Massachusetts tonight, which are likely to cause widespread power outages due to downed trees and power lines.

Over in New York, Governor Hochul declared a state of emergency due to the storm that's expected to hit the entire region with brute force. "I am proactively declaring a State of Emergency to ensure we can provide the necessary resources to respond to this storm and protect lives and property in regions where the forecast is calling for significant rainfall."

Meanwhile, the Governor of New Jersey has warned residents to be cautious ahead of the coming storm. "The anticipated Nor'easter storm is forecasted to bring significant flash flooding, coastal flooding, and wind gusts across New Jersey. Residents should stay off the roads, remain vigilant, and follow all safety protocols."
