The U.S. Coast Guard is urging mariners and coastal communities from New York City up through New England to take precautions in preparation for Winter Storm Juno, expected to impact the Northeast late Monday through Wednesday.

The Coast Guard is flying storm tracks today to warn mariners of the impending blizzard. Air Station Cape Cod is using HC-144a Ocean Sentry airplanes to circumvent the storm while radioing information to mariners below.

The Coast Guard says it will continuously update conditions and issue marine broadcast warnings.

As the storm moves up the coast, it is expected to bring snowfall of 1-3 feet or more to many parts of the Northeast through Tuesday evening, including New York City and Boston, according to the National Weather Service. Strong, gusty winds will combine with the snow to create blizzard conditions along and near the coast.

Blizzard warnings for have been issued from New Jersey to Maine in the U.S. and Nova Scotia and New Brunswick to Newfoundland in Canada, including all of Rhode Island and Eastern Massachusetts.

“I was living here in Massachusetts in 1978 when a storm shut down the city for a week, this has all the ingredients to be a historical event,” said Rear Adm. Linda Fagan, commander of the 1st Coast Guard District in Boston. “I’ve ensured our crews are ready, and prepared for the worst.”

Sustained winds will likely be 20 to 40 mph in a large area with gusts up to 55 mph, the Coast Guard says. Even higher winds are expected in eastern Massachusetts, including Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard where gusts of 70+ mph are possible.

More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...
