Nor'easter guidance

Ugh, here we go again. I can't quite picture anyone coming HERE for emergency information, but on the off chance anyone does - has a page set up with all sorts of information about what to do and where to go during the Nor'easter that's arrived today, 11/7/2012. Click here to go there. Also, this is getting super-local, but a friend who lives on the lower east side posted info about a settlement house in his neighborhood that's running their own warming center and looking for donations of all kinds of things - figured I would pass it on. Click here to visit their website, but the main info follows:

Hamilton-Madison House, Inc. and Two Bridges Neighborhood Council, Inc. will host a Gathering and Warming Center located at 50 Madison Street, NYC, NY 10038 in the gym from Wednesday, November 7th till Sunday, November 11th from the hours of 8am till 5pm.
