Hurricane Sandy: Hudson River Rising

Even before the storm hits New York, the Hudson River is already rising in Westchester.

High tide on the Hudson River was at 9:30 a.m. Monday and the river was already flowing up the boat launch at Horan's Landing and onto the walkway in Westchester.

Sleepy Hollow Police Officer Wendy Yancey was parked there this morning making sure no one decided to get into the choppy waters. 

A DPW worker watching the windy scene said "it's exciting but scary." 

The Tappan Zee Bridge in the distance has slight traffic going the 35 mph speed limit. If winds hit 60 mph, the TZ will close down.

Beyond a few people checking out the scene, and workers quickly cleaning up the last of the Castle Oil remains, it was ominously quiet on the Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow riverfronts.

DPW workers in both villages are on duty and certainly in for much work to come as this giant storm promises to linger for days.
