Tracking Tropical Storm Karen

By Kathy Zucker • Wednesday, October 9, 2013

In the last few hours, I’ve been getting emails and texts from friends and neighbors who are concerned about the arrival of Tropical Storm Karen in Hoboken, NJ. Located below sea level, a heavy rainstorm at high tide can cause the west side of town to flood, effectively snarling traffic and blocking car access points to and from the city.

So, let’s take a look at the prognosis for Karen. The Star Ledger says “Northern New Jersey could see up to two inches” on Thursday, October 10 and Friday, October 11. Accuweather projects the bulk of the rain will arrive in the afternoon of October 10th, after high tide begins at 1:21 p.m.

I will keep an eye on the situation but at the current time, the City of Hoboken has not sent out any alerts. Of course, things could change, but so far it’s looking like Karen will barely sneeze on Hoboken.
