    I don’t understand how Gerritsen is not Zone A because its only like 5 feet above seal level….

      You have the nerve to question the “Fat Head Midget Mayor”? If he declares you are a “B” ZONE. Then that is you are, The King has spoken..

    It took Irene to eliminate all the trash going thru the beach drinking and fighting on a Saturday night. I think I might like this rain on a Saturday nights

    This storm is being so overrated… It’s not gonna be anything serious. People need to seriously get over themselves.

    Most of Gerritsen should be in the A zone. Everything past Frank (Old) and H (new) are in flood zones, AND you had better pray that the storm does not breach the Belt Parkway in the AM at Plumb Beach. Time to stop all the illegal cellar apartments. Please be safe.
