NYC just released the new Hurricane Evacuation Zones which now includes an additional 600,000 New Yorkers.
This is the long awaited and revamped map since we were struck by superstorm Sandy last year which left us with unprecedented damage and destruction which our city and our region are still recovering from. Gone from the map are zones A, B, and C which have been replaced by zones 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.
Hurricane season is well under way so it’s a good thing that it was finally released.
Make sure to read the rest on Gothamist as they have a pretty neat breakdown of the new zones, what they mean as well as important links for more information.
