    Hurricane Sandy Updates

    Hurricane Sandy Update | American-Rattlesnake

    Atlantic City is living up to its name, and parts of the Bronx appear to be underwater. Connecticut is also being hit pretty hard. For information about Hurricane Sandy’s progress in the Nutmeg State,go here. Half of the people living in my old neighborhood of Dyker Heights are without power, according to my favorite independent bookstore, Boulevard Books & Cafe.
    You can discover whether you live in the danger zone through the hurricane evacuation zone finder, although by this point it’s probably best to hunker down, especially considering that your travel options are increasingly limited. You can find live updates here. Here’s a power outage map, courtesy of LIPA. Those of you living below Hylan Boulevard on Staten Island should prepare for extensive flooding and take precautions as needed.
    Hopefully, we’ll be able to sustain our Internet connection through the storm, but I wouldn’t be surprised if-like many other New Yorkers-we lose access sometime within the next day. Until then, enjoy the tweets of Mayor Bloomberg’s Spanish-language alter ego,Miguel Bloombito as well as the mesmerizing sounds of Brad Mehldau.

    41 degrees with 50mph gusts here in Raleigh. Glad we are not in the direct path of this storm. Prayers for those ALIPACers that are.

    On CNN, Erin Burnett, is walking through several inches of water, and it's still rising. Here's a shot from Twitter Bill Karins:
    And here's an amazing shot from @AlexSilverman of a grocery store near Battery Park (which happens to be where I frequently shop)

    Foursquare's Dennis Crowley tweets: "Knee deep on 8th"

    Below are some pictures of unverifiable origin. We can't confirm which ones are real. We've seen corrobrations of them, and denials, so just know that they're being passed around.
    Carlos Whitt tweeted this picture, which is at 14th and Avenue C (not near The Battery).

    This picture is making the rounds on Twitter, and it's supposedly the Lower East Side. We can't confirm that it's real.

    Here's another shot that is said to be 14th Street and Avenue C:

    This is supposedly video of a PATH station flooding... We've seen reports that it will take many days to a week to get the subways pumped out.

    Instagram user Nick Summers posts an amazing shot of the West Village in darkness: "And the lights go out in the Village."

    Once the surge levees break, the water level just soars and covers everything in a "reverse Titanic" as the following pictures demonstrate:
