BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WTNH) -- Folks along the shoreline are bracing for another big hit from Mother Nature. The Nor'easter expected on Wednesday could cause even more power problems and coastal flooding.
Communities like Bridgeport are already getting ready.
It's hard to believe that while people are still out of power, still very much recovering from Sandy, it's time to start preparing for yet another storm. This time a Nor'easter, expected to touch down along the coastline Wednesday night.
"We definitely want our residents to start preparing now for the potential of power outages, any areas of flooding that can occur and probably will occur again and those residents that already suffered damages, we really need them to start taking precautions now to start safeguarding their properties," said Scott Appleby, Director of Emergency Management, City of Bridgeport.
He's worried about the heavy rain and wind gusts that could reach up to 70 miles-per-hour.
"Our concern right now is those tree limbs that haven't come down, that are just hanging there that we have to have our crews go out there and try to identify," said Appleby.
He says if you experienced flooding during Sandy, you should move your belongings to higher ground before Wednesday.
"If you need tarps, if you need any type of cleaning materials, if any of your windows were damaged you should start taking precautions now to make sure those are boarded up and safeguarded," Appleby said.
Take the same precautions with your cars.
"Any resident that had vehicles in flooded areas we want those vehicles to be removed," Appleby said. "We'll probably be giving out areas, like we did for Superstorm Sandy, where people can park their vehicles and at least get them out of that flood zone."
And make sure you photograph any damage Sandy caused to your property. It's important to separate the damage from that storm and this one for insurance purposes. Emergency officials in Bridgeport will be meeting Tuesday morning to determine whether any evacuations will be needed.
