Vegan Meat Popsicle: Mr. Chainsaw: We're supposed to get an inch or two of rain at mostProblem is these winds are pretty bad. An inch or two of rain softens the ground up and those winds then just rock trees back and forth out of the ground.
Mrtraveler01: Hand Banana: Vegan Meat Popsicle: SlothB77: Manhattan just went darkCantore is on TWC basically saying it's flooded out like they've never seen. 3 feet of water IN the NYSE and 6 feet around it. Sounds like NYC is in some major shiat.They just reported that those stories were false.Yeah, I'm watching CNBC only because they have coverage from WNBC from time to time. I'm also watching a few streams from the NYC and Philly TV stations.CNN was worthless for a while.
MrSteve007: skinink: Con Ed purposely shut off power to parts of Lower Manhattan.Yep, my (idiot) buddy was walking around Lower Manhattan, taking pictures of everything. His last tweet was "Just got a test from Con-Ed. They're shutting down the power and internet. Bye for now"His photos Link
Hagbardr: whammawhamma: [i.imgur.com image 612x612]That looks like the elevator scene from 'The Shining'.
Somacandra: Upper Midwest representing. Power is on and fine here, but I did pass two godawful kidneystones this afternoon. Caught the bigger one and took it to the doc. Said he was impressed I managed to pass a large pencil eraser through my urethra. I almost passed out. Currently worshiping Vicodin.
legion_of_doo: Bit'O'Gristle: Ok, i just took a look at Google earth and saw the storm was pretty much over 3 states already. How is this "not made landfall" yet? Also, the wind reports I'm seeing are pretty tame.C'mon. Think of all the plastic patio chairs that got knocked over./oh the humanity

aug3: pfffft... i live in allahbama, so i bought a case an a half, just in case somthin' happens
modestlivinglegend: Most of the power outages are because the power companies (like Manhattan) were ordered to shut off power as a "precaution". So instead of waiting for a tree to hit a line and shut people down you go ahead and ruin all their refrigerated food now? These "precautionary" closures are costing 25 percent of the country to shut down. This storm has already been downgraded - no longer a huricane. It is harsh in some places, but shutting off power early - that's a new one. Why?
vodka: Whimps, if you're hardcore you make your own power.
IronTom: Bloomberg's sign language person is very animated, facially.
vegasj: Rwa2play: Yappy Jappy Midget:It sounds like the majority of it - outside of Fulton/Bowling Green - was unintentional. And we have no outside lines, so trees are not a concerned. I think their power plant on 14th and FDR drive may have flooded... but no confirmation yet.If there was flooding at 14th and Avenue C, they're definitely was flooding down there.14th in Manhattan
jayessell: Can't sleep.
dahmers love zombie: Someone on Facebook said it's Hoboken.
Mrtraveler01: 2xhelix: Milford, CT[media.salon.com image 301x268]The thing that baffles me is who was stupid enough to think that leaving a trampoline outside in the middle of a hurricane is a good idea?
IronTom: That is a heck of a picture. It should be on national news
vegasj: Weather Channel live feed for those that care.They are switching from NY to NJ to NC to DC with different reporters
Korzine: Eddie Adams from Torrance: A big ass tree just fell on ALL THREE of our cars.Amazingly, the trunk landed right between my car and my wife's in the 5 foot gap between them. A large branch wiped out her passenger side door. My cars seem to have escaped anything other than some scratches and a few dents on top of the dents I got last month when I hit a deer./Orange County NYClassic newbie mistake, never leave cars near trees. It's like building a trailer park in tornado alley. Magnets and all that.
Lollipop165: So far 4 dead in NJ and 2 dead in NYC.
hulk hogan meat shoes: Bloomberg's Spanish is excellent. Like, Arlen substitute teacher excellent.
SlothB77: Manhattan just went dark
UsikFark: Is the hurricane very teacher, in his many assholes of experiences?
CapeFearCadaver: [Updated at 9:27 p.m.] Five people have been killed in the state of New York - including a man hit by a tree while inside his Queens home - due to Sandy, said Rich Azzopardi, a spokesman for Gov. Andrew Cuomo. LinkDamn. Stay safe everyone.
CapeFearCadaver: Thank you
