For fellow NYCers, a hurricane evacuation zone map in English and Spanish #irene
So, hurricane Irene is apparently going to hit NYC late afternoon/early evening on Sunday, August 28. Not sure if you’re near a flood area? Check the map. I found I was close to a Zone C which is only a threat to neighbors a few blocks away from me (and not to me) and that’s ONLY if a category 3 or 4 hurricane were to hit and that’s very rare. Grab the map in English and in Spanish. Read more about this at Gothamist or at Accuweather.com.
