— Hurricane Sandy was bad — very, very bad — but Northeast Philly fared much better than other areas on the East Coast.
Northeast residents squeezed in last minute shopping on Monday morning in preparation for Hurricane Sandy.
The declaration will take effect at 4 p.m. Sunday. Three emergency shelters will open at that time, including one at Fels High School, 5500 Langdon St., in Northeast Philadelphia. The mayor encouraged residents who live in flood-prone areas, including areas around Pennypack Creek, to move in with family and friends or go to a shelter.
Mayor Nutter held a news conference outside City Hall on Friday to warn people who live in flood-prone areas to move by 2 p.m. Sunday, in advance of Hurricane Sandy. He also talked about the city's preparations for what is expected to be a major storm. Cancellations because of the storm warnings have already begun.
