heared on the news today morning that sandy has hit the eastcoast by a length of 1100 km which is equal to Germany from North to the south border. More than 6 Million People are without Power at the moment, this is as same as Berlin, Hamburg and Cologne together. The oldest atomic reactor in New York was fortunately shut down before the storm could cause real bad damage. Holy cow, I hope that you guys get through this without too much harm....crossing fingers though

 

The good news is that the rescue services are getting closer and closer to people who are still cut off and Sandy is getting weaker.

Signing in, appreciate your concern. :)

 

We're okay here, there's some flooding, about a foot of water in the basement, power is back on this morning, but we're not out of the woods yet, expecting a few more inches of rain. Winds hit 60mph around 10PM but it's much calmer this morning at least.

 

Just south of my location there's snow, cousins living in Rehoboth are also reporting they are okay.

Good to hear that Invader, and good to hear your family is also safe. Fingers crossed not too much damage done in the basement.

Everything is wet an quiet here. Never lost power, gotta love underground lines. Of course it's going to be a quiet day because the whole area is closed for business.

Stay safe and keep us posted, cichlidfan.

 

I am south and east of the real messes. It isn't even raining here at the moment.

All is well here. It was a pretty wild storm, in addition to many windows shattering, a large construction crane snapped at its base and proceeded to hang there blowing in the storm all night!

Took these photos fairly late in the evening, you can appreciate just how much this giant crane was moving! It made the most sickening noise as well:

I was told today by a cop "It ain't gonna fall anytime soon, so you can expect things to be blocked off for a while" (the street it's on is evacuated and the surrounding streets are not open to pedestrians, except residents)

 

That's gonna be a hell of a job to deal with!

Glad to hear from you all, and great to hear that it wasn't as bad as feared for most of you.

 

As to the Crane, would love to see how they are going to solve that one. Quite surprised its still up there, thought it would've come down in the winds.

 

Stay safe guys

Nothing to report here in Richmond, VA. A much hyped non event. Schools and state offices all closed through today.. We left work about 2 hours early (Suntrust Mortgage HQ) Rain and wind holding @ 20-35 and gusting 45-60 every once in a while. All but gone by 6 this morning. Power never even blinked. Sounds like NYC/ NJ./ CT. area took the main hit.

Yea, many got it worse than us.

 

I'm hoping to see the sun one day, it's been a few weeks since I've seen it, gets sort of depressing when that happens. Earliest sunshine isn't until Saturday for us in PA

 

Only a few weeks, but a few months here in the 'sunny' UK ;)

I was a pretty lucky one where I live. Southern coast of Long Island in Suffolk County. These pictures were taken about 1/2 a mile down the block from me, and the water basically stopped at my driveway. We didn't lose any trees fortunately, but people lost millions on my block. Absolute destruction and will take some time to repair.

 

I was without power for basically a day and a half, cable is still out (could careless) and a few friends still don't have power nearby. Here's a few pictures, but a lot of the same throughout town. Water, fallen trees, down power lines...

just got power back on today 11/3/2012, very lucky my areas was spared with the high 80 90mph winds, still many across my state without power, i think many people under estimated the power this storm unleashed.

 

only damage to my home was when the bathroom window blew in, apart from that

no major damage, few roofing tiles dislodged as well.

will try to post few pics up when i drove around in my car day after the storm.

Storm? What storm??? Seriously though, my area in WV got lucky...some of the eastern parts of the state got blasted with snow. I think the final total as far as power outages was <2000 and AFAIK ZERO deaths...thank God for small miracles. Hope everyone in the hardest hit areas of the coast stays safe and everything starts to get back to something resembling normal soon.

It's not the fall that gets you. It's the Godawful sudden stop at the end.
