50 Million Americans Under Flash Flood Watch As Elsa Moves Up East Coast

• by Tyler Durden

As Elsa moves near Long Island and southern and coastal New England today, heavy rainfall could lead to considerable flash and urban flooding.

Tropical storm conditions should continue along portions of the mid-Atlantic coast early this morning. Tropical storm conditions are expected in portions of the southern New England states and New York by late this morning and afternoon. Gusty winds are expected over portions of Atlantic Canada tonight and Saturday. -NHC

Earlier this week, Elsa made landfall on Florida's west coast and pounded the Southeast. Heading north at 31 mph with maximum sustained winds of 50 mph, the storm is battering Delaware and New Jersey, and New York's coastlines.
