NYC opening Hurricane Evacuation Shelters

In anticipation that Hurricane Irene might hit the NYC area this weekend, the City of New York has announced that Evacuations Shelters will open at 4 PM this afternoon. Initially, this will be for Senior Citizens and other vulnerable people in the Orange Zone (see map in yesterday’s posting). This City will decided by 8 AM tomorrow as to whether a general public evacuation from one or more zones will be necessary. The closest Evacuation Shelter to Brooklyn Heights is at NYC Technical College, 300 Jay Street (@ Tillary Street).

    To Yue Mak,

    Here is a map of the Hurricane evacuation center. I think the nearest one to you is IS 187 or Roosevelt HS.
