A hurricane watch "Earl" is in affect for New York City and surrounding areas. In the event of a hurricane the City will activate its Emergency Operations Center on a 24-hour basis.
If your apartment has a terrace or balcony, make sure nothing can become airbourne during a high wind condition. This Includes awnings, umbrellas, boxes, plants or trees, outdoor furniture, toys etc. At the same time, make sure the drains on your terrace are free from debris that can create a flooding condition.
Before, during or after a hurricane, NYC residents can call 311 for information.
Enjoy the Labor Day weekend in spite of the weather!
