Kiddo, I'm not sure about anything. Only going by what's happened in the past, which in the case of hurricanes in NYC, not much. The coastal areas are another story.
I'm sure about the wind--at the moment. There are trees across the street. None of the branches are moving.
If the power goes out, I'll be very surprised and even more pissed.
I hope I'm right for me and a lot of other people.
BTW, Kicky. When I was in high school, we were evacuated from school because of a hurricane. I waited too long to get moving. As I was walking home, a gust of wind came along and nearly knocked me down. A little later, I was hanging onto a lamp post to keep from being blown away. I was much lighter then--maybe 115 pounds.
I made it home safely.
