A screenshot of the current situation:
From tonight will rain a lot. And it will become very windy.
Probably wind speed will grow up to 70 km/h (39 mph) till Monday. Sunday night will be the worst time.
Are there many hurricanes in New York during the year?
As far as I know last one was in 1985.
Has been New York evacuated?
Probably in TV they’re talking about evacuation but as far as I know only these areas (red ones) have been evacuated. Also hospitals have been evacuated.
My location is on the green placeholder.
Update – 27/08 – 12:30
Updated the map according with the official NYC evacuation map.
Blue areas could be in danger (there are few possibilities) for the hurricane but could experience storm surge flooding from a moderate hurricane.
Is public transport available?
I know MTA will close subway starting from Saturday 2 p.m. and until with wind speed is 70 km/h will be closed.
What is required to do for this situation?
This is what recommended to me:
- Buy food you can eat without cooking because electricity could be shutdown due the Hurricane. Expecially fruits, vegetables and cans (tuna, meat can… – that I forgot to buy)
- Get more water as you can: I will fill all the bathtub and some bins.
- Have a flash light and batteries.
- Close windows and doors.
- Stay at home untill Monday.
Has been your arrive that gives to New York all this bad lucky?
I don’t know, but in case there are few calamities could come:
Apocalypse– oh no, this is for next year…
