New York Evacuation Zones
The New York Times' New York City Hurricane Evacuation Zones Google Map shows the three evacuation zones in New York.
The zones are based on the strength of the hurricane making landfall. New York is preparing for the threat of storm surges with the closure of the entire public transportation system.
Climate Central has created a Google Map showing the areas in lower Manhattan, New Jersey and Brooklyn that are most at risk of storm surges from Hurricane Irene.
