NYC Storm Surge Evacuation Map PDF

The NYC Office of Emergency Management website is bogged down a bit already and warns of possible slowdowns.  Here’s a re-post of the hurricane storm surge flooding evacuation map, to help get it out there.  Mayor Bloomberg plans to make evacuation zone announcements early Saturday.  Read the map — it gives useful info about each evacuation zone.  The OEM website and the paper map version that the city sent out to people in the zones also give more details, such as whether or not people in high rises in an evacuation area are still are expected to evacuate (yes).
