Voluntary Evacuation Notice Issued in Anticipation of Nor'easter

Emergency responders are going door to door in low-lying areas to get the word out.

The Town of Southampton has issued a voluntary evacuation for low-lying areas in anticipation of Wednesday's forecast nor'easter that is expected to blast through with sustained winds of 20 to 30 miles per hour and storm surges of 3-and-a-half to 4 feet.

According to Jennifer Garvey, a spokeswoman for the Town of Southampton, emergency officials began knocking on doors Tuesday afternoon to warn residents and a notice is posted on the town's website.

One area the town is particularly concerned about, said Garvey, are those that surround Tiana Bay, where Hurricane Sandy unleashed her wrath, causing an overwash across Dune Road into the bay.

Flanders and East Quogue are two other spots where emergency workers are going door to door, Garvey said.

East Quogue, according to officials, was hit particularly hard on Dune Road during Hurricane Sandy — there were several overwashes and the road is currently impassable. Only residents who have signed harmless waivers have been able to access the Southampton portion of Dune Road from the Quogue border to the Shinnecock Inlet where the dunes were flattened.

And in Flanders, Garvey said, Hurricane Sandy devastated at least six homes, which, she said, have been deemed uninhabitable and must be demolished.

The Village of Westhampton Beach has also issued a voluntary evacuation notice. Find out more here.

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now <a href='http://jobs-williamhill.com/' rel='follow'>mat kinh thoi trang</a> destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
