BROOKLYN - As Hurricane Irene makes herself known in Brooklyn, the winds are picking up and the rain is getting heavier.

In Coney Island, the boardwalk was completely empty on what would usually be a very busy Saturday night during the summer.

The area is mostly a ghost town, with everyone either heeding the mandatory evacuation order or at least staying inside. For the most part, the only vehicles on the road are police cars trying to ensure residents' safety and to make sure people stay off the boardwalk and beaches as the hurricane takes aim at the area.
