Hurricane Irene fears of flooding at New York

Storm from Hurricane Irene have begun to knock New York, passing heavy rain and the danger of overflowing in the financial area. New York City's public transportation structure has been closed.
The horror is of a squall rush affecting New York's Hudson River, which could potentially inundate the flood defenses of Lower Manhattan and cause flooding in the financial district there. At least eight people have died as an effect of the storm, which has reached North Carolina, Virginia and Florida. Irene, with winds of 130km/h, is owing to hit New York at hurricane force in the morning. About 1.8 million homes lost power as the 800km storm barreled up the east beach.
Nearly two million people have been leaved, most from New Jersey. Some 300,000 people living in low-lying areas of New York City were told to leave in an unparalleled compulsory emigration.
At this moment too late for citizens to go away
