Are You Ready for Irene?

We hope by now you're done with standing in line at the grocery store and already have all the supplies you need in case the power goes out for a few days. You have bottled water, working flashlights, extra batteries, a battery powered radio, and enough non-perishable food to hold you at least until the grocery stores have a chance to restock.

You can find a complete list of the essentials at NOAA's Hurricane Preparedness Page.

If you happen to be in New York City, you can find out if you need to evacuate by typing your address into this map. If you're here, and you have friends or relatives there who don't watch TV, listen to the radio, or read the papers, go ahead and call them and let them know what zone they're in (or should not be in)!
