2.5 Million people have been ordered to evacuate along the east coast. 400,000 of these people live within the 5 boroughs.

 

After 6pm, Amtrak will be the only New York regional transit service operating. Some trains have been canceled, but all service will not be suspended until Sunday.

So is all of the major local NYC stations i.e Chs. 2, 4, 5 and 7 and local cable news channels NY1 and News12. While Ch. 9 and 11 are providing 'updates' at top of hour and as warranted.

 

And Nationally so is CNN(US)and Fox News.

6 to 10 inches of rain expected.

 

NYC Under Tornado Watch

 

Atlantic City, NJ and sourrounding areas now under 4 seperate Tornado Warnings.

 

With wind speeds of 85mph, Irene has spawned several tornados recently. Of the nearly 400,000 New Yorkers ordered to evacuate, it is believed that more than half have ignored the order. It's going to be raining for hours, and most all of the areas under evacuation order may not have power after the storm.

 

More than 1.4 million in the dark now.

It still remains that last hurricane to make landfall in NYC was 1893. When Irene made land fall in NYC this morning she had already been downgraded to a tropical storm.

 

Widespread flooding, power outages, and down trees across the region. No major issues reported.
