Episode Narrative A very strong pressure gradient developed as a vigorous area of low pressure moved northeast from the North Carolina coast to off the Long Island coast developing into a nor'easter and high pressure progressed into the area from the midwest. Trees and power lines were blown down as a result of the strong winds which were common across the region. There was also some minor damage to some structures. Most areas experienced wind gusts between 50 and 65 mph, with isolated 70 to 80 mph wind gusts at higher elevations.
Event Narrative Trees were down countywide, with the greatest number in the southeast.
