As a pre-Thanksgiving storm approaches our region, the Red Cross urges Greater New York residents to take the appropriate steps to prepare for severe weather.

The storm is forecasted to bring high winds, heavy rain and possibly snow and freezing rain to parts of our area.

What could make things even more difficult is that the storm will arrive on what is traditionally the busiest travel day of the year.
