Hurricane Sandy hits New Jersey & NYC, Sprinkles you OK??

Post by Sci-Fi Girl » Tue Oct 30, 2012 7:38 pm

I heard it's pretty bad. Sprinkles, let us know you're OK! Do you have power?

Who else do we have in that part of the east coast?

I heard from Sprinks yesterday lunch time and she said she was going to stay indoors and wait for Sandy to pass...fingers crossed things didn't get too rough in her neck of the woods.

Keith and his folks live in that general area. Luckily he's in FL at the moment so not in harm's way and as far as his parents go, they live outside of NYC so all is well on that front as far as I know.

I'm glad they are all out of harm's way. I hope Sprinkles fared well during this horrible storm.

Very glad you heard from Sprinks! :)

I did think of Keith in Florida. It's weird avoiding a hurricane by going to Florida!



This was a wollop of a storm, and it's not gone yet. And the damage was not isolated.

8 million people are without power in 17 states, 2 million of those are in NY. 90 percent of Long Island has no power. New York City's subway was flooded and is out of commision, as is Wall Street, and portions of the Atlantic City boardwalk are gone.

Further inland was spared the worst, but we did get wind. The great lakes are pouring over their banks too, causing damage in Ohio and other places. The Hudson Valley has had significant power outages too, and also flooding in the southern parts. The winds blowing from south to north pushed the storm surge up the Hudson River from the coast, so some towns very near the river or it's tributaries had their share of the flooding as well.

The whole thing is just not pretty. Stay safe everyone!!

I know that was a little ironic, wasn't it? But hey, whatever it takes to stay safe!!! :wink:

You're right, it really was. Luckily enough, all of my friends in the area didn't suffer any serious damage which faced with this kind of extreme conditions, was quite amazing really.

Hope things go back to normal as soon as possible for all those who were in Sandy's path.

Sci-Fi Girl, I'm glad you escaped the danger. On TV shows the terrible pictures of the devastation of the hurricane. :shock: I hope Sprinkles all right too. She never comes here for 3 days, I guess they had electricity cut off. I hope, the only problem in this. Image

Thanks Natalie. We were definitely spared, but people here were prepared for the worst after last year's Irene destroyed two towns near me, and caused lots of other damage. (My town was OK, it's where the national guard brought everyone they rescued.) So people were pretty nervous this time. We mostly got wind, and I heard a lot of sirens, but nothing really bad happened.

It seems the coast has had the most damage, from both flooding and wind, particularly the towns closest to the shore. I hope Sprinkles and her family are not too close to the ocean.

Here is a thread at Ex Isle discussing the storm, including people who live near the damage.

Sci-Fi Girl, thanks for the link. The first thing I read this thread even 3 days ago. Sometimes I look at the site "exisle" to learn about what is happening.

I wish you all stay safe. :bighug:

Hi all!
I'm happy to hear that everyone who has checked in is okay. Today was my first day back to work.
We have power on my job, but no hot water or heat. I don't know when that will be fixed. As far as my home, I was blessed. No damage and no loss of power. We have another storm headed our way on Wednesday though. This has to be the worst news for people who have been without so much since last Monday.

(((((fantasia))))) Glad you are alright, and great that you have no damage! :)

I heard about that new storm too, let's hope it fizzles out and is not too bad. (We can hope, right? ;) )
