East Coast braces for Hurricane Irene; New York plans transit shutdown
Quote:
As rains and high winds from Hurricane Irene began lashing the Carolinas on Friday, New York City ordered an unprecedented mandatory evacuation of residents in low-lying areas, and the Washington region braced for a storm that could wreak havoc up the Eastern Seaboard into New England.

With the core of the tropical cyclone expected to approach the coast of North Carolina Friday night and a hurricane warning in effect for much of the East Coast, New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg said that mass transit system would be shut down Saturday, the first time the city’s public transporation has been halted ahead of a storm.

The city’s evacuation order would affect about 270,000 residents in coastal areas such as the financial district in lower Manhattan, Coney Island in Brooklyn and the Rockaways in Queens.

“If you want to be safe, now is the time to start moving,” Bloomberg said in a news conference. “We’ve never done a mandatory evacuation before” and would not be doing it now if the threat were not serious.

Bloomberg said Irene is expected to arrive Saturday evening as a Category 1 hurricane, with sustained winds of 74 mph or more forecast into Sunday.

Meanwhile, D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray said he plans to declare a state of emergency Friday afternoon, and President Obama urged residents to obey any instructions to evacuate and make plans ahead of time.

“All indications point to this being a historic hurricane,” Obama said from his vacation getaway on Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., which lies on Irene’s projected path and for which a hurricane watch is in effect. “If you are instructed to evacuate, please do so. It’s going to take time for first responders to begin rescue operations and to get the resources we’ve prepositioned to people in need.”

“All of us have to take this storm seriously,” Obama said, noting that an aircraft carrier group was ordered out to sea Thursday to avoid the hurricane.

After delivering the warning, Obama decided to cut short his vacation and return to Washington Friday night instead of Saturday as originally planned, the White House said. Saturday is when the East Coast is expected to take the brunt of the hurricane.

As the administration prepared for what could be the largest storm to make landfall in the last three years, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano sought Friday to allay concerns that the federal budget crunch could sap resources needed for an emergency response.

“We are going to have the resources we need to respond to this hurricane,” she told reporters.

The National Hurricane Center downgraded Irene from a Category 3 to a Category 2 storm when its maximum sustained winds dropped slightly Friday, falling below the Category 3 threshold.

In its 2 p.m. bulletin, the center said Irene had weakened a bit, with maximum sustained winds of 100 mph, and that “little change in strength is forecast before Irene reaches the coast of North Carolina” by Saturday. A Category 2 hurricane packs sustained winds of 96 to 110 mph, while a Category 3 has winds of 111 to 130 mph.
