Above is a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) map of Hurricane Sandy seen from space. This Weather Underground tracking map, above, shows the hurricane’s projected path over the coming days. Mayor Michael Bloomberg today ordered mandatory evacuation of low-lying areas vulnerable to storm surges as Hurricane Sandy bears down on New York City. The line for the cashiers stretched around the interior of the shop, with items like water and bread in short supply. Winds increase with height in a hurricane and could be significantly stronger than on ground level.


It's too soon to tell where Sandy is going, but "common sense says you should start taking precautions," he said. The city’s subways, trains, and buses have ceased operation, and many people are evacuating the NYC metropolitan area, the Wall Street Journal reports. Google.org has a map showing evacuation centers, possible storm surges, Red Cross emergency shelters, and more. Zone A includes all low-lying coastal areas and other areas that could experience storm surge in ANY hurricane that makes landfall close to New York City.
The New York Times has a good interactive feature (pictured above) showing NYC’s hurricane evacuation zones.
