Residents along the east coast of the United States can't seem to catch a break, preparing for another nor'easter that may hit the area next week.
As reported by Digital Journal, the area is already trying to recover from the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, as well as a nor'easter that struck the east coast last week. Now meteorologists say Connecticut and other states on the east coast may fall victim to yet another nor'easter next week.
Depending on where the storm tracks, there could be snow, a wintry mix or rain according to a WXedge report.
According to NJ.com, temperatures are not expected to be as cold as the ones that accompanied last week's storm, which dumped as much as eight inches of snow in some areas. However, winds are predicted to funnel more water into the Long Island Sound and along the New Jersey coastline.
The Christian Science Monitor is reporting that FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) has already paid for temporary hotel rooms to shelter up to 34,000 people. The Red Cross has sent an additional 80,000 blankets to the area, anticipating a worst case scenario.
Although the track of the storm remains uncertain, several New Jersey townships and island towns have again ordered evacuations as a precaution. The possibility of additional damage being inflicted on homes in the area due to frozen water pipes, have authorities and residents concerned.
Cities most in danger of being impacted by the storm include New York City, Philadelphia, Boston and Washington according to a New Jersey New report.
