Update, Oct. 29: edited the title of this post to correct the date.
Here’s the latest as of 11:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 28. (You can find previous posts via the Hurricane Sandy tag.):
- The city’s subways, trains, and buses have ceased operation, and many people are evacuating the NYC metropolitan area, the Wall Street Journal reports.
- The storm is expected to make landfall, perhaps in central New Jersey, late Monday. (See this New York Times interactive map and the National Hurricane Center site.)
- NYC residents continue to prepare for the storm. Folks have been stocking up on goods ahead of the storm’s arrival. This was the scene, above, at a grocery store I visited this evening. The line for the cashiers stretched around the interior of the shop, with items like water and bread in short supply. But the atmosphere was calm and orderly.
The New York Times has a good interactive feature (pictured above) showing NYC’s hurricane evacuation zones.
Here’s a NASA image, above, showing the hurricane from space.
This Weather Underground tracking map, above, shows the hurricane’s projected path over the coming days.
Google.org has a map showing evacuation centers, possible storm surges, Red Cross emergency shelters, and more.
- The Weather Channel’s live coverage of Hurricane Sandy is on YouTube here.
- You can view frequently updated images of the city from a camera on the New York Times building.
Reminder: Here’s my Hurricane Sandy NYC Twitter list, which has 13 feeds and counting. I’ll be adding to the list in the days ahead.
