Thanks CJ. Afro We're likely to get a lot of snow so who knows what could happen? Everyone on the Coast be safe.

The highway shown in the first 10 seconds of this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rq-bJff7h30 (the Belt Parkway) now looks like a river. I visited it at 8:30 PM on Monday night,  a few minutes after high tide. I was standing behind a fence that is just behind the the trees shown on the right side of the first 8 seconds of this video; and the water was rushing across the highway and up to the trees (maybe 15 feet from the fence). Was quite a sight.

I hear Lower Manhattan is flooded, and much of it is blacked out.

I hope everyone is keeping safe and dry.

We lucked out so far. Our area got lots of rain yesterday and about three inches of snow last night but it seems to have tapered off. Unfortunately, I have many friends and relatives in New Jersey and eastern PA who may not be so well-off.

Yeah, where I am in Brooklyn we've been relatively unscathed. Just a lot of rain and wind yesterday, some streets were blocked by downed trees, but that's basically all. (A few times, the electricity flickered for just a second, but that's all). No flooding, no power outtages. I know that many people, especially in the low-lying coastal areas, have not been so lucky. Restoration of power in New York City may take anywhere from 4 days in Manhattan to a week in the other boroughs.


Public transportation in New York is shot. They hope to restore some limited bus service at 5 PM today, but who knows how long it will take for the trains to get back; many stations were swamped.

The worst of the storm is over. Today was pretty calm. We expect a few more showers, and there may be more flooding tonight at high tide (about 8:15 PM), but the storm is pretty much gone.

But the recovery will still take a while for those who are flooded and/or without power. I hope everyone is okay, and the recovery is quick and smooth  Smiley

That's the story here, too, although some of my colleagues' houses are without power.

my sis lives in Central Jersey (about an hour from Atlantic City, where the hurricane made landfall last night). She is without power, as is 80% of her town.

Thanks for posting, cj  Afro

I emailed cj that pic to post, since I don't know how to post pics here


I took that photo on Sunday night at about 7 PM, before the storm really hit. At that point, there was no rain, just some wind. Went to the promenade at Gravesend Bay, where some waves were already crashing over the gate.

---------

I went back near the bay again last night, but by this time, the water was waaaay over the fence. The promenade was completely flooded, as was the grassy area next to it, the 6-lane Belt Parkway, and much of the grass on the side of that as well. Here is a satellitle image of the area  https://maps.google.com/maps?q=gravesend+bay&hl=en&ll=40.601584,-74.010896&spn=0.001963,0.003707&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-a&hnear=Gravesend+Bay&t=h&z=18


You'll see all those trees next to the highway. Well I stood behind a fence that was right behind those trees;  the waves were rolling up to the trees, only about 15 feet away from us
