Irene is expected on Long Island Sunday 12 am. until 2 pm.
I heard a comment from a mayor, I think NJ...he was giving a news conference and told people on the outerbanks they needed to evacuate. Then he said something like: And if you chose not to leave after we told you to, please fill out an index card with your name, ss# and nearest kin, put it in your left shoe... don't wear flip flops. When we find your body, we will know who to contact.
While I did giggle A LOT at his sarcasm, I know it just makes it harder on the Police, Fire Dept., rescue medical teams, etc., to have to rescue those who were given evacuation orders and chose to stay.
My son's life will be put in danger because of them.
With that said, thank you to all those who will be out there, helping with emergencies and clean up.
