EV Grieve Storm Center

Many good things to do outdoors tomorrow, from Howl! to the East Village Radio festival at the South Street Seaport. However, the remnants of the deadly Tropical Storm Hannah promise to wash away any of those plans. (The Art Parade in Soho has already been canceled.) 

I've been following Rolando's informative posts at Urbanite on Hannah...He also takes a look back at Hurricane Gloria, which smacked Long Island in September 1985. (His last post includes Weather Channel footage of Gloria via YouTube.)

Speaking of Gloria and YouTube...Here are a few jokesters in Brooklyn who made a parody of reporters covering a storm back during Gloria's days in 1985. (It's in two parts; the second half shows a wee bit of Coney Island.) Watch only if you're really bored.
