    Thanks GG, that kid with the goggles looks terrified. What a disaster here in NYC: thankfully very few people have been harmed - the infrastructure, with time, we can fix.

    Relatively speaking it's actually not too extreme of a disaster in NYC (except for Breezy Point). It's a huge water mess. I wouldn't be surprised if it took a couple weeks for all the subways to get back on line. This will be very expensive to clean up.

    The South shore of Long Island is definitely a major disaster and the Jersey Shore got smashed very very badly

    On the news Feds reported it will be the costliest natural disaster in US history. All the catastrophic devastation I've seen so far, and everyone who's lived in certain areas for decades saying they haven't seen it this bad since the big '62 storm, my immediate neighborhood was incredibly lucky. Couple of downed trees and some siding ripped off, but no loss of power or water, and no roof leaks as in years past.

    This morning a levee in Moonachie broke and they are still in the process of evacuating. Some NJ power companies reporting that some communities may not see power for weeks. Family in p/u truck in north Jersey driving along, for some reason the parents got out, a tree fell and killed them both and injured their two children. Man lying in bed killed by tree falling on house. I have a book titled 'Great Storms of the Jersey Shore', and the pictures we're seeing today, with entire towns under water, look the same as the pictures in that book of the storms from the '30s & '40s and '62. Sooner or later I'll see the familiar areal shot of the ocean meeting the bay down in LBI or the Seaside peninsula.

    Blew me away seeing Manhattan in the dark, especially NYU Langone (backups failed) where a line of ambulances waited to evacuate the patients. Oh and there's this:



    That is a freight train on the NJ Turnpike!
