August 2008 - Long Island, NY

Submitted by Region 4 Coordinator – Dianne Montague

Noah’s Wish is on the road again, this time for Hurricane Irene. For me personally, I didn’t know until 9:00pm last night which road I was going to be on-Long Island or Virginia Beach. Before coming to Long Island, I helped CERT set up a human shelter at Hunter College in New York City and then we set up an animal shelter here on Long Island.? Our crates are ready, and people are slowly bringing in their pets. Mandatory evacuations don’t start until 5pm, but all bridges to and from Long Island closed at 12pm. So we wait to see what happens next.

Irene hit the island as a category 1, this caused localized flooding,?trees to be uprooted and power outages.?The response team has been busy – 90 dogs and 40 cats have been processed since the shelter opened earlier this morning. The storm is expected to pelt the island with heavy winds and rain early tomorrow morning, not to mention a 6-8 foot storm surge. Shelter staff says the location is great, it’s safe and on high ground! They are extremely happy with the facilities.

Evacuation orders are being lifted, people are beginning to reclaim their animals! The worst is over and things are not as bad as originally anticipated – Good News!? The shelter weathered the storm just fine, without even a power outage. Things will be winding down over the next couple of days.
