Earlier this week, the city released a set of maps illustrating its new evacuation zones, which now include an additional 600,000 New Yorkers. And, apparently, large swaths of the city, which will be underwater.
According to the mayor's office, the new zones are based on "coastal flood risk resulting from storm surge - the 'dome' of ocean water propelled by the winds and low barometric pressure of a hurricane; the geography of the city’s low-lying neighborhoods; and the accessibility of these neighborhoods by bridge and roads."
