Henri was racing full steam ahead over the open Atlantic early Sunday morning, headed north toward a rare landfall in New England. AccuWeather meteorologists say that dangerous impacts are already underway for parts of the Northeast.
As of Sunday morning, Connecticut Governor, Ned Lamont, has implemented a travel ban on I-95 for all empty tractor trailers, tandem tractor trailers and motorcycles beginning at 11 a.m. EDT Sunday.
Henri is rated a 2 on the AccuWeather RealImpact™ Scale for Hurricanes in the United States due to the anticipated rainfall, damaging winds and storm surge set to impact Long Island and New England.
