UPDATED (8/25/11 9am): We’ve added a temporary map layer on OASIS showing the locations of NYC’s hurricane evacuation centers. Here’s the link: http://bit.ly/oBsUY8 . It’s easy to use: Hover your mouse over each one to highlight it (the site details will also be highlighted in the panel on the right). Click on a map marker to bring the site details up to the top of the list. Double-click on a site in the list and the map will zoom in right to that location. You can type in your address above the map to see if you’re in an area that’s at risk of storm impacts, and how close you are to an evacuation center. The OASIS map automatically also shows any nearby subway stations. And you can add any other layers from the Legend list to the right of the map.
