AS Hurricane Irene gets closer, Bloomy has called for the first-ever NYC mandatory evacuation - of "ZONE A" - the city's lowest lying areas, including Avenues B, C and D on some blocks, Battery Park City and more. Please make sure you know whether you are in any of the three zones - Check this map and make sure. If you are in ZONE A, you will need to evacuate by 5 PM Saturday, and all public transportation will stop at noon.
We'll be posting here and welcome reports, pics, etc. from Mboarders up and down the coast. Also watch @motherboardsnyc on twitter
