At times, New York City can experience severe weather. It's important to take the time to prepare for severe weather emergencies, such as a:

  • Flood

  • Hurricane
  • Winter storm

You should:

  1. Make an emergency plan that best suits your needs and the needs of your household.
  2. Stay informed by signing up for Notify NYC, the City of New York’s official emergency communications program, available in multiple languages and formats.
  3. Visit the NYC Severe Weather website or the National Weather Service online to find out how severe weather emergencies are affecting New York City.

Eligible New York City residents and businesses in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island affected by the significant flash flooding event on September 29, 2023, may now apply for low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration.

These loans are made available for those whose homes and/or businesses were damaged due to flooding.
