TSES Empire State - Hurricane Irene

Anyone have an update on storm preparation for the training ship. I heard yesterday on Facebook, after new york city ordered ships to sea, that the plan was to anchor her in the East River… but I haven’t gotten an update since.

Why on EARTH would they anchor her in the East River? Wouldn’t around the corner IVO Steppingstone in the Sound be better?

Good question! Which is why I was wondering what the final decision was.

McAllister’s tug Resolute is holding her on the dock.
