A new hurricane evacuation map released by the Bloomberg administration expands flood zones to include 37 percent of the city’s population. Evacuation zones are now divided into 1 through 6, rather than A, B and C, and 600,000 additional people are included in the new at-risk zones, for a total of 2.99 million. More streets in Williamsburg, Greenpoint, Brownsville, Flatbush and Bensonhurst are included, as well as parts of Maspeth, Elmhurst, Jamaica, Ozone Park and Jackson Heights. The new zones also include 175 of 334 NYCHA housing developments, up from 149 under the prior map. More information can be found here.
