Here’s a list of resources to keep you in-the-know as the storm approaches.
Marble Hill and the northeastern-most parts of Spuyten Duyvil are in Evacuation Zone B, meaning there is the potential for flooding if a category 2 hurricane hits just south of the city.
Van Cortlandt Park, parts North Riverdale and Kingsbridge, from Broadway at the Yonkers border, as far east as Bailey Avenue and into Marble Hill, are located in Evacuation Zone C, meaning there is the potential for flooding if a catoregory 3-4 hurricane hits just south of the city.For weather information, see NYC's severe weather website, the National Weather Service hurricane information site and The Weather Channel's Bronx page: To report downed power lines, outages, and check service restoration status by computer or mobile device, go to ConEd's website or call 1-800-75-CONED (1-800-752-6633).
