Do You Need to Evacuate?

For New York City residents concerned about hurricane Irene, WNYC has put up a map displaying all the evacuation zones.  Just type in your address and check to see if you fall into one of the evacuation areas.  You can also call 311 for more information about evacuations in case of landfall.  Make sure you are prepared in case you suddenly have to evacuate.  Put aside a bag with any important identification like passports and other photo ID, childcare supplies, water, flashlight and personal hygiene items.  The Office of Emergency Management has information on their site about how to evacuate.  And this is their site with recommendations on other ways to be prepared.
