Superstorm scenario:–a so-called “Superstorm” is predicted to affect the New York City–Long Island, New York area, having travelled up the Atlantic seaboard. Long Island is particularly vulnerable to flooding from the storm if it occurs during the Spring-to-Autumn season; if the storm is predicted during the Fall-to-Spring months, particularly during the winter, the Island is vulnerable to heavy snowfall amounts since it is bounded on both sides by water. In either case, evacuation off of the island is a challenge given that all vehicular traffic must flow through New York City. While this scenario focuses on the response and recovery phases of the Disaster Management Cycle for a single entity, there are numerous such facilities located within Suffolk County. Given the vulnerability of the Island to such extreme weather, mitigation and preparedness issues should be reviewed prior to writing the Collaborative Report deliverable and should likewise inform the After-Action Report deliverable.
