SO my sister is stuck in Brooklyn. I created this thread in an effort to help plan for her the best evacuation route out of Brooklyn. She plans to
wait it out, but I am worried that things will break down in the next couple of days in Brooklyn and I would like to give her at least an emergency
action plan should things get really bad around her. As things stand she is stuck in Brooklyn. Public transportation will be down for MANY DAYS.
She can walk but that can take a day and a half to get almost out and she would still be in the city, so....What would you think is the safest and
fastest route out of Brooklyn.
I am considering pedestrian traffic in an emergency, threat of looters moving up from south of her current location,(park slope area) ect.
My questions are
What area should she head to.
What route should she take to avoid flooded areas, and looters, and possible bad neighborhoods/ neighborhoods where police precincts have been
What is her best bet out of the city, Brooklyn in particular.
The bridges are walk-able from what I gather.
She lives in the park slope area. She says things are fine and that neighbors are helping each other out. No electricity of course. She is an able
bodied adult, with a likewise husband. They would be on foot since their car would be useless getting out of Brooklyn. Maybe I am getting nervous, but
this is how I think. I don't like to be surprised and I would like to be able to offer her some information at least, since I am thousands of miles
My worries are that once the looters south of her finish cleaning out the stores, or the people hunkered down at home run out of things, they will
venture out to grab what they can. Police are around, but are really busy. A 911 call is almost useless. My friend is a LEO in Westchester and he told
me that it is a disaster in Brooklyn as far as the cops are concerned. Couldn't tell me much more.
SO ATS, can you help me out. I have nobody in Brooklyn besides my sister. I don't know where to send her in a SHTF scenario. I already told her to
prepare a bug out bag, and what to pack. I would like to know though, where should I send her. From what point is traffic circulating in NYC, to where
she can arrange transportation to other areas where life is a little more normal.
Thanks in advance.
