Open Thread: Hurricane Irene Edition!

As the rains begin to fall and the last evacuees make their way out of the flood zone, we’re hunkering down and preparing to bring you news and alerts throughout Hurricane Irene’s approach to our region.

Sheepshead Bites is relying on its legions of readers to help us chronicle the storm’s landfall in Brooklyn. Help keep your neighbors informed and let us know about any storm-related information or conditions as you become aware of them. Send tips about fallen trees, downed power lines, blackouts, flooding or anything else.

Send tips, photos, video and anything else to nberke [at] sheepsheadbites [dot] com or call/text us at (347) 985-0633. You can also post your experiences and information in the comments section of this post.

Good luck, and stay safe.
