Brookhaven Town Issues Mandatory Evacuation of Low Lying Areas

All homes in Category 1 coastal zone required to vacate; recommended evacuation of Category 2 areas.

At noon today Acting Supervisor Kathleen Walsh signed an executive order for the mandatory evacuation of all low lying areas on both the south and north shores.

According to a release from the town, all areas within the Category 1 Surge Zone of the south shore and all areas within the Category 1 and Category 2 Surge Zone of the north shore are required to leave their homes. This includes the Strongs Neck Peninsula. Maps of the effected areas can be viewed on the town's website at www.brookhaven.org

The Town also recommended a voluntary evacuation of areas within the Category 2 zone on the south shore, areas that are prone to flooding, and any areas that experienced the impact of Tropical Storm Irene in August of last year. Officials say residents should find shelter with friends outside of the evacuation zones or move to the official Red Cross shelter at Sachem East High School on Granny Road in Farmingville.   

Some key phone numbers and contact info include:

  • Red Cross: (631) 924-6911 or (1-800) 733-2767
  • Suffolk County Government: www.suffolkcountyny.gov or www.redcross.org
  • Brookhaven Town: www.brookhaven.org
  • Down Trees or Power Lines?: (631) 451-TOWN

The Town of Brookhaven will also be sending out email alerts to residents that signed up to be on the email list. You can be added to the email list by visiting the town's website at the above address. County Code Red alerts can also be accessed by signing up at Suffolk's website address above.

Interestingly, the surge zone maps/etc do not render, at least on my Mac. So how does town/village/county government expect to get the word out?

If anyone else is having this problem, a version of the map is available via http://www2.sunysuffolk.edu/mandias/38hurricane/storm_surge_maps.html

When is the evacuation? Any specific day or time?

Thanks for providing a MUCH better map than what was on Brookhaven's site.

I can't believe the map that Brookhaven town has up on their site. In a serious emergency situation like this, perhaps put in a little more effort to post a decent map for town residents. Are you kidding?
K. October 29, 2012 at 04:05 PM
I agree completely! Enlarging the image is no better. The map my local Pizza place provides for directions is more detailed - and useful (Hmmm...I wonder if they're open today?!)

I'm not accusing anyone of "faking it". http://www.coachoutletonlinegg.com My point is that our Pompeii - like most classical http://www.coachoutletonlineaol.net sites, in fact - is the product of collaboration between http://www.coachfactoryoutletwy.com modern rebuilders and conservators, and the original Roman builders http://www.coachoutletstorefc.com themselves, with the lion's share of the work on our side.And it's no less impressive or moving http://www.coachoutletaol.org for that - as the body casts help to show.One of http://www.coachfactoryonlineest.net the video clips played in the exhibition at the Getty Museum comes http://www.coachfactoryoutletpst.com from Roberto Rossellini's film, Voyage in Italy, in which the lead couple, http://www.coachfactoryoutlettx.com played by Ingrid Bergman and George Sanders, tour the country as their marriage http://www.coachfactoryonlinefc.org disintegrates.On their visit to Pompeii they watch the plaster being http://www.coachoutletwy.com poured into a cavity left by two of the victims. http://www.coachoutletonlineybw.com In the movie's most haunting scene, these victims emerge as a couple.
