As hurricane Sandy makes its way to the tri-state area, supermarkets have started selling out on basic essentials and LIC residents are beginning to board up their homes. Ok, maybe not. In fact, nobody seems to be panicking in the area and chances are it’s all gonna be OK.
In the meantime, a little advice from the Long Island City Partnership:
Our partners at the City’s Office of Emergency Management (NYCOEM) are closely monitoring Hurricane Sandy for the safety of all New Yorkers. Forecasts show that tidal surges from the storm could be worse than last year’s Hurricane Irene. NYCOEM is urging all New Yorkers to be prepared. Even though Sandy should weaken before it reaches our area, it will still bring strong winds, extreme rainfall, significant coastal flooding and a potential tornado threat. Widespread wind damage and power outages are likely throughout the Northeast so please take precautions before the storm hits.
