We’re so fucked. From the NYC summary (click through for other regions):
The worst of Sandy is forecast to converge between New York City to the Delmarva on the coast Monday into Tuesday with conditions deteriorating rapidly Sunday night.
Problems ranging from travel delays and inconveniences to major damage and life-threatening conditions are to be expected with this storm. […]
Salt water can spread over some rail yards and perhaps into subway stations. Some low-lying communities can take on feet of water. […]
Wind gusts in the neighborhood of 60 to 80 mph are a strong possibility in the New York area even if the center heads for Delaware or South Jersey. This can down trees, send loose items airborne. Funneling effect between the buildings can make walking extremely difficult. Windows could be dislodged from some skyscrapers, as the winds will be much stronger several hundred of feet above the ground.
This live blog is tracking the latest info on Hurricane Sandy, along with specific information for each region and major city in its path.
I hope New York gets the attention it deserves through all of this.
