HUDSON COUNTY -- The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory for our area from noon until midnight on Tuesday, Sept. 18. Gusts up to 50 m.p.h. are possible.

The city of Hoboken sent out these precautions:

Be sure your property (including construction sites) is secure.

Bring in unsecured objects from patios and balconies and secure outdoor objects such as lawn furniture or garbage cans that could blow away and cause damage or injury.

The safest place to be during high winds is indoors. If at all possible postpone outdoor activities.

Watch for flying debris. Tree limbs may break and street signs may become loose during strong wind gusts. Keep an eye toward nearby balconies for loose objects that may fall.

If you are in Hoboken, report downed lines to 201-420-2007 (Hoboken Fire Department) or 911 for assistance. Do not try to free lines or to remove debris yourself.

Avoid anything that may be touching downed lines, including vehicles or tree branches. Warn others to stay away.
