Hurricane Irene: Links roundup

Over at Laughing Squid, Scott Beale has an excellent roundup of links for New Yorkers and all others in the storm's path this weekend: Hurricane Irene Threatens East Coast of United States.

Among them, this map of New York City hurricane evacuation zones. At the time of this blog post, NYC Mayor Bloomberg is calling for mandatory evacuation of Zone A, the orange color areas in this map. The city has never before ordered a mandatory evacuation, at any time in history.
