Four People Dead: NY, You Still Have Time

Leaving NYC

It is a little past noon on Saturday as I sit here in Cali, watching the East coast. Four people have already died, and we are not even through the first day of the weekend. Latest death: an 11-year-old boy in Newport News, an area under evacuation orders, crushed to death by a tree falling on his apartment building. Do you really need any more incentive to evacuate, NYC?

Having “no place to go” is not an excuse anymore. There are shelters set up outside the evacuation areas. If you cannot get to the shelters on your own, prevail upon a neighbor, friends or call the emergency management authorities in your area. Towns along the East coast are ordering extra body bags. There. Is that enough incentive? Please, please, please, just leave….
