>> and adding insult to injury for this area, the nor'easter is here, now picking up steam, expected to bring rain, high winds , already there is a heavy wet snow falling in these areas on trees that could jeopardize power lines again. jim canner to is in trenton, new jersey, jim , how long is this going to last? what's going to be the worst of it for these people who have suffered?
>> i think we have to go through tomorrow morning to be honest. in my wildest dreams i never thought i would be covering a land falling hurricane nine days ago and a snowstorm today. this is absolutely wild here. let me show you what's going on in scope here. take the camera down to point pleasant beach where mike seidel is, and where we've had the wave action come in. enough so they had too use a lot of heavy equipment to shore up the beaches. what would normally be a little wave action and one to three feet has a chance of causing further erosion and wash out and even bringing the water up to some of the homes. they've been spend issing 24 to 36 hours trying to shore up these beaches and make sure we don't get any more water intrusion. that's the first thing. second thing is, we got snow in new york city coming down right now. light snow reported. a camera from the top of the rock . there's a chance there's a ban of snow up into southwest connecticut that could rotate down right over new york city and produce heavier area of snow. the national weather service in new york has upgraded that area to a winter weather advisory . one to three inches on the grassy areas and in some of the building tops is not out of the question here. in trenton, we've got a mixture of sleet and snow, nothing heavy at the present time but the radar is showing some very intense snow up across connecticut. near hartford, bristol, waterbury, those areas have accumulating snow. i've seen pictures on the interstate where it is accumulating on the roads. the is intensity of the snow is key, andrea. wherever it falls whether philadelphia, new york, hoboken, hartford, if it comes down fast enough, for a long enough period of time, there are going to be problems on the roads and there are going to be additional power outages. back to you.
>> jim canner to, thank you so much for the warnings,
