NYC Mayor: 'It's Dangerous'

"It is dangerous to stay where you are," New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg warned at a second press conference Saturday. The mayor is referring to New Yorkers living in Zone A, an area that's been ordered for mandatory evacuation in anticipation of Hurricane Sandy. Bloomberg outlined evacuation procedure for flooding, and said there is probably not going to be torrential rain. Despite the increasingly urgent evacuation warnings, Bloomberg said the city is prepared. "We don't anticipate anything new happening," he said. Maryland canceled early voting on Monday, and closure of the New York Stock Exchange building Monday was announced—though trading will still be open.
