Evacuation Plans

Just in from the Village, a "Voluntary Evacu­ation" affecting everyone "South of Main Street and South of South Road" is now in effect.

Saturday at 10:00 am, it becomes a "Manda­tory Evacuation" for the same areas.

(They may have to summon the National Guard to keep members off the WCC golf course. )

Westhampton Beach Mayor Conrad Teller, who has a whole decade on me and survived the big blow of '38, is erring on the side of caution.

Despite the "bible" for such local emergencies, the Town of Southampton Survival Guide list­ing a number of "Hurrican Shelter Locations," the only one currently in operation is Hampton Bays Intermediate School... which isn't even one of those identified on page 20.

It is being run by the Red Cross.

No alarums and scarums, just a note about what's happening locally.

Just read that the Intermediate School was a mistake – they meant High School.

The Town is off to a good start... sending people to the wrong location!

27East, however, reports as of 4:28pm Friday, that it is the "Hampton Bays Secondary School."

But the Westhampton Beach Elementary School is the fallout shelter... think the Metrecal cookies are still stored down there for any nuclear attack.

I don't think the Elementary School goes back that far!
