I have have 2 houses in Hurricane Sandy's path one in NYC and the other in Schohaire county NY.

When Hurricane Irene hit Schohaire county was devastated FEMA is still there helping out and filling out damage claims.

I had 1 1/2 acres washed away in total down by creek creek bed was 18' across 16' down to the creek and opened to 70' across and the water was just below the 16' mark. when it was over it left a 72 wide gap and left 13' of sediment and river rock and lost more then 40 trees. luckily my house was spared.

Heres the evacuation map for NYC

You should have at least six days of food and water. fill all you Meds. and if you have pets have enough food for them also and wee wee pads in case you can't go outside.

Have enough Emergency candle and lanterns, put masking tape on windows and have cell phones charged.

The 211# has been turned on for Schohaire county, thats where some of the worst damage from hurricane Irene was. besides Greene County. Dam in these areas are being brought down to minimal levels to releve pressure on the Dams. Gilboa dam is being watched and relieving water pressure.

Here we go, all we can do is prepare, can't really do anything to stop this monster. If you're from the area make sure you get your food and supplies now.

Mostly ready here. Not going crazy like the majority of the people around here but definitely being prepared. Going to go out in a little while and get some gas and pull some cash.

I wish i could, my wife is a NY State Essential Personal and has to stay, so i stay until she can leave. I'am in a zone C on high ground. so fingers crossed , she has to stay in manhattan at her facility where she is the director of that facility, which sucks cause we are separated. but i'am prepared as any one can be.

This is the first time that i can remember the word OBLITERATE be used in East coast hurricane by the Weather Channel. South Shore NJ is going to get hit real hard when Sandy comes ashore. get out if you haven't already. head west to high ground. On Long Island trees already falling. Be safe everyone and i hope their wrong.
