Just got back from shelter duty in NYC
Set up 250 cots; unpacked 250 blankets; created two childrens play areas; cartons of MRE's, pet cages and baby supplies standing by. Whatever this turns out to be, it won't be like New Orleans.

23. I don't know. The city is surrounded by water. Not below sea level as far as I know.
But not much above it. A good surge could flood the tunnels and streets.

50. NYC would NEVER drown.
Not only is ABOVE sea level, but the spirits of the people there are such that they wouldn't let a storm kill their city. NewYorkers the toughest breed, believe you me!

9. The original shelter plans called for no pets...
Edited on Fri Aug-26-11 09:37 PM by brooklynite
...which is the policy in most places. Then the City discovered people wouldn't evacuate without them. People are now asked to bring their own cages and supplies, but we have to assume some people won't.

Thanks for putting in your time and energy! Hope everything goes smoothly and the storm effects are mild.

Edited on Fri Aug-26-11 10:09 PM by Bozita
If total evacuation is the order, folks gotta understand this.

Pet cages at shelters is critical.

33. Imagine that -- putting safety & the welfare of owners & their pets over
expediency. How refreshing!! Good for NYC -- I wish more would do that. I don't crate my dogs but you can be damn sure I'd go for crated dogs with me over leaving them, which I'd never do.

New York compared to New Orleans is almost under water. In New Orleans the roads show how below sea level it is.

19. Exactly. They will be terrified enough from the noise - add abandonment to that?
Never. I would board up as best I can and stay with my critters and not think twice about it if i didn't have a place to go with them WITH me.

If its our time, we will just have to go comforted together.

Edited on Sat Aug-27-11 12:14 PM by WarhammerTwo
Back in 2007, Jersey got hit with a Nor'easter and the firetrucks came through telling us to evacuate. We did, although we didn't have to. When we got back to our house, we had, like, two inches of water in the basement. But we had never been through anything like that before and we panicked. Anywho, we put our 4 cats and their carriers (with blankets aplenty)in the back of my covered pick-up truck along with two litter boxes and they sat in the parking lot of the shelter overnight. We set them up with food and water and checked on them periodically. We wouldn't take them into the shelter because there were too many dogs and kids. They would have been even more terrified than they already were but there was no way we were going to leave them at home alone.

STAY SAFE EVERYONE!

22. We didn't evacuate during Katrina.
Partly because it was the end of the month, and we really could not afford to escape. But we also had criiters. My pony and the Malamutes could not fit in the sedan.

I know during Katrina a lot of people refused to evac. because they couldn't bring their pets with them. I totally understand that rationale. I'd stay behind with my pets, too!

32. question about pets and cages
This whole thing got me thinking. We have carriers for the cats but I think that it would suck to keep them in little boxes for perhaps days. Its to late now, and thankfully we probably are in no danger of having to get out, but would something like this be allowed in a shelter?

42. Some coworkers yesterday were questioning why they would evacuate parts of Wilmington
Nice people but none of them are from the area (this is in DE not NC).

The part they did a mandatory evacuation is low-lying near both the Christiana and Delaware rivers and tends to flood. But what's worse is it's filled with low-income housing and people who rely on public transportation everyday (which is closed the next 2 days) plus one of the main routes out is over a bridge. My guess is Mayor Baker knew this area would be at risk and would be safer to evacuate them then to risk a nightmare situation similar to Katrina.

44. Be happy for modern MREs
They're practically gourmet food compared to the first ones in the 80s, which had tasty treats such as the "four fingers of death" and the freeze-dried "pork" patties.

The people needing the shelter will be well-fed, and likely not be disgusted as were the soldiers of the late 80s.

I actually get MREs sometimes for my kids to eat as a treat. They love them.

48. Yep, we love our pets as much as our families.
My friend is coming up to stay with her mom (my neighbor). She lives in a ground floor apt. and there's a mandatory evacuation of all ground floor residents. She brought everything over already, but still won't come because her cat Daisy is hiding and won't let her grab her (she senses that something's up). I hope that she doesn't wait too long. Right now the weather is not bad, a little rain on and off, but it will go down hill after 8 PM.

:-(

71. Well, my friend will do the best she can to catch her.
If she can't get her into the pet cage, she'll leave her food and water on the kitchen counter. This is not New Orleans, in my town we won't see water over people's roofs. The worst that will happen is that she'll get a few inches of water and there are plenty of high places for Daisy to climb. Our building is only a few blocks away from her apt. and tomorrow she can check on her.

47. Good job!!!
Here in Hoboken they set up the high school as a shelter. Hoboken is below sea level and the back of the town is prone to flooding. All stores on the main drag have to close by 8 PM. NJ Transit is shutting all service at 6 PM.

Bloomberg has done a good job preparing the city for the worst, but so has the fat bastard governor of ours in NJ. I have to admit that he made me laugh yesterday when in his best Soprano style he told the people at the beaches that it was 4 PM, that they had soaked enough sun and to "get the hell out of the beach". Stupid people, the shore of NJ and Long Island are predicted to get the worst of the storm and these dopes hadn't evacuated yet. Atlantic City closed down every casino for the first time in history.

Anyhow, I hope that all the DU critters who are in the path of the storm have taken precautions and stay safe.

Good luck!!!

74. pet cages in separate areas i assume?
just curious

since keeping pet cages in main area could lead to some interesting allergic reactions
or lead to allergic people staying home the second they hear 'pet cages'

81. Thank you so much!
I have loved ones in Brooklyn. Some in the surge area and some not. It's really great to know they have people like you nearby to help.

83. Nice to be in a town people care about, isn't it?
And also to not be hit by a gigantic storm with powerful winds? Yep, won't be like New Orleans. Congratufuckinglations.
