YONKERS -

A nor'easter is bearing down on the Hudson Valley and communities across the region are helping residents prepare for possible flooding.

News 12 meteorologists say heavy downpours are likely overnight and throughout the day on Saturday.

The National Weather Service has issues a coastal flood warning from noon until 3 p.m. on Saturday for the Sound Shore area with tides up to 3 1/2 feet above normal.

Also, flooding is expected in low lying areas including parking lots, parks, lawns and homes/businesses with basements. The storm will also cause numerous parkway closures and ponding on area roadways

Many communities are providing residents with sandbags to help with expected flooding in low lying areas.

In Yonkers, Mayor Mike Spano says sandbags are available at the city's Yonkers Organic Waste Yard at located at 610 Nepperhan Avenue starting until 7 p.m. today. He says it is probably best to get this out of the way today before the storm hits but if you need to go out tomorrow you can start doing so from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
