VERY windy up here in Warwick, with strong gusts. Rain. Power is flickering occasionaly. Lost internet for a few minutes, but it came back.

Waiting on the creek directly next to my building parking lot to overflow and flood the lot, as has happened before with much lesser storms. As the high tide approaches, it will probably happen. We all moved ours cars to the Burger King parking lot next to our building.

I was just on the phone, looking out my window when the sky lit up like noon time. Seems a transformer went about 3 blocks from me and took power out for a significant area in Fleetwood Mt Vernon.

Please check in folks...as you are able.
I'm sure it affected some of you more than others..and perhaps some not at all...but it would be nice to know you're all ok & made it through..

I know the media here had a field day with predictions & broadcasts...as usual, weather is a big network draw

I'd hate to be in lower Manhatten right now.
subway and traffic tunnels took in a lot of water
and entire city blocks are without power now.
that record storm surge was the real story

my family by inwood has a lot of street flooding
but they are used to that by now. here by me
a lot of trees uprooted and are laying about.
I'll try to post some pictures once it's daylight.

Sandy left NYS Capital district with a lot of Tuesday morning hangovers and a very probable baby boom in July.

Many of my Brooklyn and City friends are under water, some lost everything, others have destroyed lobbies, buildings, and are forced to leave while maintenance inspects. So many gas leaks and down power cables, I hope everyone will be ok.

Tried driving into work to downtown Brooklyn today but both Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges were closed. Even the Third Avenue bridge in the Bronx was closed.

Interestingly, by the time I got back home both bridges reopened.

I wasn't turning back around, especially since both FDR and West Side highways are still closed, and all of lower Manhattan is still without power. Not fun stopping and going through intersections so I don't get hit.

that's the half circle commuter tunnel that links the west side hwy to the east side fdr drive. if you know where it is and ever drove thru it, you would not be surprised it's underwater. it's basically a tunnel under all the wall street skyscrapers to help reduce cross town traffic. what people forget is the entire battery park area was built as landfill created with all the material the original WTC buildings had to displace back in the 1970's, so it's no wonder it's only a few feet above high tide levels.

I went through it many times. Not surprised it's flooded...just amazed that it was still completely filled when that photo was taken.

in a strange way we are lucky that tunnel took in so much water, that would have otherwise have ended up filling more important subway tunnels and building subbasements. my guess is pumping out that tunnel will be low on the city's priority list since all it does is relieve cross town traffic.

The water of the Atlantic Ocean is infinite relative to the few million gallons of the battery u/p.

AVD of course, but we are only talking the few hours around high tide where the storm surge was able to flow over battery park into the tunnels, so the water involved was in fact a limited quantity. It's logical that tunnel diverted a lot of floodwater that would have moved further inland and done a lot more damage during the few hours the water was actually flowing in from the bay.

My sympathies from Connecticut. I'm a lucky one, only a day/day and a half power outage. But there is a heavy tree branch laying on top of my cable drop, don't know when they will get to it...
