Living in New York you take calculated risks. When I first moved to the City, I knew I wasn’t going to be ‘in Kansas anymore’. One of the calculated risks you take is the fact that New York City is a coastal city on the Atlantic seaboard and that we are vulnerable to Hurricanes, it even happened almost a century ago.
I would encourage all New Yorkers to prepare for the possibility, by heading OEM’s well-prepared advice. Also, check your house/apartment to see if it is in a hurricane evacuation zone and find the closest proposed shelter.
Bogopolis.com encourages everybody to take notice and prepare (especially if you were born in land-locked areas).
