Evacuations occurring along coast in preparations for Sandy

| No Comments

Multiple cities along the east coast have begun evacuations in preparations for Hurricane Sandy, which is expected to hit the U.S. this week.
New York mayor Michael Bloomberg ordered evacuations of areas throughout the city, affecting an estimated 375,000 people, Reuters reported.
"If you don't evacuate, you are not only endangering your life, you are also endangering the lives of the first responders who are going in to rescue you," Bloomberg said. "This is a serious and dangerous storm."
"Don't be stupid. Get out," said New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, the Chicago Tribune reported.
The National Hurricane Center said the states of New York and New Jersey can expect water levels to rise from six to 11 feet, the Tribune reported.
