Hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers were told Thursday to pack a bag and prepare to be evacuated as the nation's biggest city braced for its first hurricane in decades.
Bloomberg ordered the five hospitals in the low-lying areas of the city known as “Zone A” to complete mandatory evacuations by Friday at 8 p.m., along with homes for the aged and nursing homes. He urged homebound residents in the zone to use the city’s dial-a-ride system for the disabled to evacuate on Friday as well.
