Just days after a massive windstorm ripped across another one is set to bring near hurricane strong winds again.

Wind gusts of up to 60 miles per hour are expected to sweep across the state and that could lead to more power outages on top of the ones that happened just days ago.

A high wind warning has been issued for parts of New York starting Friday night through Saturday morning.


Crews from NYSEG and National Grid have been trying to restore power to those without it and it looks like they will be busy over the next several days.

The American Red Cross has some helpful tips for people who lose power for extended periods.

Keep food cold and when in doubt, throw it out.

Eat your fresh, perishable foods first. Avoid opening your refrigerator and freezer to preserve cool temperatures. An unopened refrigerator will keep foods cold for about 4 hours. A full freezer will keep the temperature for about 48 hours if the door remains closed.

Prevent power overloads and fire hazards.

Unplug appliances and electronics to avoid power overloads or damage from power surges. Use flashlights, not candles. Turn off the utilities only if you suspect damage or if local officials instruct you to do so.

Prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.

Don’t use a gas stove to heat your home and do not use outdoor stoves indoors for heating or cooking. If using a generator, keep it outside in a well-ventilated area away from windows.
