NEW YORK — New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says residents who had been ordered out of their homes in low-lying areas will be allowed to return Sunday afternoon. “The worst is over,” the mayor said, “and we will soon move to restore and return mode.”

Bloomberg says the evacuation order put in place for Hurricane Irene will be lifted as of 3 p.m. He had ordered more than 370,000 people out of those areas. They were mostly in lower Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. He said that 9,000 people were evacuated into evacuation centers.
