hurricane-irene3Matzav.com Hurricane Coverage: Hurricane Irene may have already claimed its first New York victim: The city’s Website. NYC.Gov crashed this morning, likely because of a surge in traffic from New Yorkers seeking information about hurricane preparations.Officials are evacuating hospitals and nursing homes in coastal areas like Coney Island and preparing to possibly shut down buses and subways if Irene continues her threatening path toward the city.

A spokesman for the city’s Department of Information Technology said techs are working to determine the exact cause of the Website’s failure – and to get it back up online.
