The city has released a new hurricane evacuation plan (NY Daily News: “‘Cane & able plan”), so that we don’t all die when a category 5 hits the city. Since we still haven’t packed a “go bag”, we’re probably less prepared than we have been in any other house. If there is an evacuation, the dog will be allowed on the subway (muzzled), but given how hard it is to get off this island in normal circumstances, I can’t even imagine what an evacuation would look like. I guess the deal is to get going as early as possible, and get as far out of town as possible.
Given that we are up on a hill, rising sea levels, and even a pretty serious storm surge, are unlikely to flood us. Try playing with this map if you want to find out if you are in the same boat, so to speak.
