Transformers seem to be exploding in lower Manhattan.
There have been SO MANY faked photos today that I can't take any of these seriously any more. That looks fake to me but my pessimism may be getting the best of me, lol
I'm pretty sure I've seen that shark photo before.
What??? Are you too close to Ridley Creek?
Idiot front neighbor (apt building directly faces mine) left all his balcony furniture out again ala Irene. Way to have potential projectiles...
I'm starting to lose power
Thoughts and prayers to all in the path of the storm. (((hugs)))
Be safe, Southpaw!
i'm actually really high up. but if i needed to evacuate, 5 pm was not the time to tell me.
Stay safe all our FSUers!!
Still here . Lost cable for a few minutes, but it's back. I have candles lit just in case. I can't imagine I'm going to have power forever.
Watching "Ask the Governor" and he's being pretty energetic. He said he'll probably need to take a day long nap in a week or so.
That's for sure.
Looks like I'll get a hot dinner tonight at least, though I can't imagine it'll be the case tomorrow.
PRkid's friend texted from Silver Spring, water in her basement climbing towards her bedroom. Parents in Jenkintown, north of Philly, have lost power at assisted living facility but the generator's come on. Stepbrother and SIL in Sudbury, MA have lost power, they're on generator. And I am sitting next to the window in my bedroom on my old fashioned desktop computer listening to buckets of rain and wind up to 50 mph.
Sheesh. This is already getting old.
7 fake Sandy photos going around social media.
the shark swims in at #7!
A building in Jersey City Heights collapsed.
I heard about a building collapse but the picture I saw (only a brief second) looked more like the side of a building collapsed. It didn't appear as if an entire building caved in but just the brick wall...make sense? I hope I am right because that is much less severe for anyone inside.
By the way, this is really odd to actually watch Hurricane footage. I am usually in the Hurricane and my power goes out as soon as it gets close enough. I remember when that happened with Katrina and power finally came back on and we find out about all the devastation.
Every now and then the NJ news channel shows pics that residents send in - they just showed two shark pics and the dude was like "I don't know, I think some people might be having fun with us..."
My glass top patio table shattered yet nothing hit it. Totally creepy. Winds terrible here in Boston area. Still have power and TV, knock on wood.
you may be referring to the building in Manhattan...unless the exact same thing happened in Jersey City Heights
Transformers are exploding all over town, lighting up the sky like fireworks
Yes, Jersey City Heights had their own building collapse.
OK, this is really trite, but our local NBC station is still on day long hurricane news, and we switched to high def to try to find evening shows, but cannot find The Voice, only more local weather. So we are watching Dancing with the Stars, and Giles made me happy.
water flooding into the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel and onto West Street in Lower Manhattan.
Really incredible images. Water rushing out of the tunnel, and 4 feet of water rushing through Stuyvesant town in Manhattan like a river.
wow.. i will try and find that on the news.. (well in between the voice).. our lights are flickering.. making flask of tea.. filled my water.. but we are just supposed to get lots of rain and crazy winds.. which we get during winter storms anyway (except usually snow not rain).. neighbours old half dead oak tree is swaying like crazy..
CNN just reported that there is 3 feet of water on the floor of the NYSE.
ETA: CNN retracted - unreliable source.
They just showed a still image of water rushing down the stairs and into a subway platform that looked like something out of an Hollywood disaster movie.
My house in Delaware is still okay (haven't heard from my sitter, and the power is still on). I am in Williamsburg at a conference, and all is well. Rainy and a little windy, but no problems.
It really does. NYC metro definitely got hit worse than I expected considering the landfall was around Atlantic City.
Still have power here. I'm actually really surprised about that. Heading to bed now, but hopefully there won't be too much damage in the morning. Good luck everyone!
