So far, depending on your news source, we are all gonna drown or get a really nice rainstorm.
The latest forecast that EV Grieve IreneWatchCenter© has seen is 8-12 inches of rain with gusts of wind up to 80 mph. And the ugliest of Irene's wrath will be mid-day Sunday through 3 or so. But that could all change.
Meanwhile, there is a lot of discussion about Zones.
So let's map this out for you:
Oh, right sorry. Here it is, via WNYC.
It's possible that Zone A could face an evacuation. starting at Houston... East of Avenue D ... north to East Ninth Street, then west on East Ninth Street to Avenue B then north to East 14th Street...
Here is a link to the city's hurricane zone finder. I typed in an address in Zone B. According to nyc.gov, my evacuation center is Hunter College on Park Avenue between 68th and 69th Streets. May be tough to get that far north if the city shuts down the public transportation grid.
