The storm caused the worst damage in the 108-year history of New York’s extensive subway system, according to Joseph Lhota, the chairman of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

 

 

The city’s transit system suffered unprecedented damage, from the underground subway tunnels to commuter rails to bus garages, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said Tuesday.

 

 

‘We have no idea how long it’s going to take,’ spokeswoman Marjorie Anders said.

Today the New York governor told citizens facing power outages that it could last for several days: ‘Eat the most perishable items first: leftovers, meat, poultry & foods containing milk, cream, sour cream, or soft cheese.’

 

 

All 10 subway tunnels between Manhattan and Brooklyn were flooded during the storm, as the saltwater surge inundated signals, switches and third rails and covered tracks with sludge, she said.

 

 

The entire system wasn’t flooded and the authority was already pumping water. Workers ultimately will have to walk all the hundreds of miles of track to inspect it, she said, and it wasn’t clear how long that would take. Trains had been moved to safety before the storm.

Mayor Bloomberg said there was just no telling when power and transit would be back, but estimated some bus service would be restored by Tuesday afternoon.

 

 

‘Clearly the challenges our city faces in the coming days are enormous,’ he said.

 

 

Water lapped over the seawall in Battery Park City, flooding rail yards, subway tracks, tunnels and roads.

 

 

Rescue workers floated bright orange rafts down flooded downtown streets, while police officers rolled slowly down the street with loudspeakers telling people to go home.

 

 

‘This will be one for the record books,’ said John Miksad, senior vice president for electric operations at Consolidated Edison, which had more than 670,000 customers without power in and around New York City.

 

 

An unprecedented 13-foot surge of seawater – 3 feet above the previous record – gushed into Gotham, inundating tunnels, subway stations and the electrical system that powers Wall Street, and sent hospital patients and tourists scrambling for safety.

Curiosity turned to concern overnight as New York City residents watched whole neighborhoods disappear into darkness as power was cut.

 

 

The World Trade Center site was a glowing ghost near the tip of Lower Manhattan.

 

 

Residents reported seeing no lights but the strobes of emergency vehicles and the glimpses of flashlights in nearby apartments. Lobbies were flooded, cars floated and people started to worry about food.

 

 

A huge fire destroyed 80 to 100 houses in a flooded beachfront neighborhood, forcing firefighters to undertake daring rescues and injuring three people.

 

 

More than 190 firefighters contained the blaze but were still putting out some pockets of fire more than nine hours after it erupted.

As daylight broke, neighbors walked around aimlessly through their smoke-filled Breezy Point neighborhood, which sits on the Rockaway peninsula jutting into the Atlantic Ocean. Electrical wires dangled within feet of the street.

 

 

Officials said the fire was reported around 11 p.m. Monday in an area flooded by the superstorm that began sweeping through the city earlier.

 

 

Firefighters told WABC-TV that the water was chest high on the street, and they had to use a boat to make rescues.

 

 

They said in one apartment home, about 25 people were trapped in an upstairs unit, and the two-story home next door was ablaze and setting fire to the apartment’s roof.

 

 

Firefighters climbed an awning to get to the trapped people and took them downstairs to a boat in the street.

Video footage of the scene showed a hellish swath of tightly packed homes fully engulfed in orange flames as firefighters hauled hoses while sloshing in ankle-high water.

 

 

Many homes appeared completely flattened by the wind-whipped flames. One firefighter suffered a minor injury and was taken to a hospital.

 

 

Two civilians suffered minor injuries and were treated at the scene.

 

 

In September, the same neighborhood was struck by a tornado that hurled debris in the air, knocked out power and startled residents who once thought of twisters as a Midwestern phenomenon.

 

 

Skyscrapers swayed and creaked in winds that partially toppled a crane 74 stories above Midtown.

 

 

Right before dawn, a handful of taxis were out on the streets, though there was an abundance of emergency and police vehicles.

The massive storm reached well into the Midwest: Chicago officials warned residents to stay away from the Lake Michigan shore as the city prepares for winds of up to 60 mph and waves exceeding 24 feet well into Wednesday.

 

 

Remnants of the former Category 1 hurricane were forecast to head across Pennsylvania before taking another sharp turn into western New York by Wednesday morning.

 

 

Although weakening as it goes, the massive storm – which caused wind warnings from Florida to Canada – will continue to bring heavy rain and local flooding, said Daniel Brown, warning coordination meteorologist at the National Hurricane Center in Miami.

 

 

As Hurricane Sandy closed in on the Northeast, it converged with a cold-weather system that turned it into a monstrous hybrid of rain and high wind – and even snow in West Virginia and other mountainous areas inland.

Just before it made landfall at 8 p.m. near Atlantic City, N.J., forecasters stripped Sandy of hurricane status – but the distinction was purely technical, based on its shape and internal temperature.

 

 

It still packed hurricane-force wind, and forecasters were careful to say it was still dangerous to the tens of millions in its path.

 

 

While the hurricane’s 90 mph winds registered as only a Category 1 on a scale of five, it packed ‘astoundingly low’ barometric pressure, giving it terrific energy to push water inland, said Kerry Emanuel, a professor of meteorology at MIT. .

 

 

Three of the victims were children, one just 8 years old.

 

 

Sandy, which killed 69 people in the Caribbean before making its way up the Eastern Seaboard, began to hook left at midday Monday toward the New Jersey coast.

 

 

Even before it made landfall, crashing waves had claimed an old, 50-foot piece of Atlantic City’s world-famous Boardwalk.

 

 

‘We are looking at the highest storm surges ever recorded’ in the Northeast, said Jeff Masters, meteorology director for Weather Underground, a private forecasting service.

 

 

Sitting on the dangerous northeast wall of the storm, the New York metropolitan area got the worst of it.

 

 

An explosion at a ConEdison substation knocked out power to about 310,000 customers in Manhattan, said Miksad.

 

 

‘We see a pop. The whole sky lights up,’ said Dani Hart, 30, who was watching the storm from the roof of her building in the Navy Yards.

 

 

‘It sounded like the Fourth of July,’ Stephen Weisbrot said from his 10th-floor apartment.

 

 

New York University’s Tisch Hospital was forced to evacuate 200 patients after its backup generator failed. NYU Medical Dean Robert Grossman said patients – among them 20 babies from neonatal intensive care that were on battery-powered respirators – had to be carried down staircases and to dozens of waiting ambulances.

 

 

Without power, the hospital had no elevator service, meaning patients had to be carefully carried down staircases and outside into the weather. Gusts of wind blew their blankets as nurses held IVs and other equipment.

New York University, Downtown and Manhattan Veterans Affairs hospitals were evacuated.

 

 

Bellevue and Coney Island hospitals have no power. There have been no storm-related fatalities in the hospitals and there are 6,100 people in city shelters.

 

 

About 670,000 homes and businesses were without power late Monday in the city and suburban Westchester County.

 

 

In Schwartz’s Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook, residents who ignored a mandatory evacuation order awoke to debris-strewn streets and a continued blackout. About 2 inches of mucky dirt and leaves covered streets crisscrossed by downed power lines after water sloshed 12 blocks inland.

 

 

The doors of the Fairway grocery store were blown out. Several cars left in the parking lot were shifted by flood waters overnight and were left crammed door to door.

 

 

Schwartz and her husband rode out the storm on the third floor of the residences above the Fairway and said white-capped flood waters reached at least 3 feet around the building.

 

 

“It was scary how fast the water came up,” she said.

The facade of a four-story Manhattan building in the Chelsea neighborhood crumbled and collapsed suddenly, leaving the lights, couches, cabinets and desks inside visible from the street. No one was hurt, although some of the falling debris hit a car.

 

 

Not only was the subway shut down, but the Holland Tunnel connecting New York to New Jersey was closed, as was a tunnel between Brooklyn and Manhattan. The Brooklyn Bridge, the George Washington Bridge, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and several other spans were closed due to high winds.

 

 

The three major airports in the New York area – LaGuardia, Newark Liberty and Kennedy – remained shut down Tuesday.

 

 

Overall, more than 13,500 flights had been canceled for Monday and Tuesday, almost all related to the storm, according to the flight-tracking service FlightAware.

 

 

A construction crane atop a $1.5 billion luxury high-rise in midtown Manhattan collapsed in high winds and dangled precariously. Thousands of people were ordered to leave several nearby buildings as a precaution, including 900 guests at the ultramodern Le Parker Meridien hotel.

 

 

Alice Goldberg, 15, a tourist from Paris, was watching television in the hotel – whose slogan is ‘Uptown, Not Uptight’ – when a voice came over the loudspeaker and told everyone to leave.

 

 

‘They said to take only what we needed, and leave the rest, because we’ll come back in two or three days,’ she said as she and hundreds of others gathered in the luggage-strewn marble lobby. ‘I hope so.’

 

 

Wall Street remained closed today and U.S. stock exchanges said they were testing contingency plans to ensure trading resumes as soon as possible this week after Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast.

 

 

U.S. markets will be closed for a second day – the first time since 1888 that the NYSE remained closed for two consecutive days due to weather. The New York Stock Exchange said contingency plans are being tested only as a safety measure.

 

 

Fire destroyed at least 50 homes Monday night in a flooded neighborhood in the Breezy Point section of the borough of Queens, where the Rockaway peninsula juts into the Atlantic Ocean.

 

 

Firefighters told WABC-TV that they had to use a boat to rescue residents because the water was chest high on the street. About 25 people were trapped in one home, with two injuries reported.

 

 

Airlines canceled around 12,500 flights because of the storm, a number that was expected to grow.

 

 

Off North Carolina, not far from an area known as ‘the Graveyard of the Atlantic,’ a replica of the 18th-century sailing ship HMS Bounty that was built for the 1962 Marlon Brando movie ‘Mutiny on the Bounty’ sank when her diesel engine and bilge pumps failed. Coast Guard helicopters plucked 14 crew members from rubber lifeboats bobbing in 18-foot seas.

A 15th crew member who was found unresponsive several hours after the others was later pronounced dead. The Bounty’s captain was still missing.

 

 

One of the units at Indian Point, a nuclear power plant about 45 miles north of New York City, was shut down around 10:45 p.m. Monday because of external electrical grid issues, said Entergy Corp., which operates the plant. The company said there was no risk to employees or the public.

 

 

And officials declared an ‘unusual event’ at the Oyster Creek nuclear power plant in Lacey Township, N.J., the nation’s oldest, when waters surged to 6 feet above sea level during the evening.

 

 

Within two hours, the situation at the reactor – which was offline for regular maintenance – was upgraded to an alert, the second-lowest in a four-tiered warning system. Oyster Creek provides 9 percent of the state’s electricity.

 

 

In Baltimore, fire officials said four unoccupied rowhouses collapsed in the storm, sending debris into the street but causing no injuries. Meanwhile, a blizzard in far western Maryland caused a pileup of tractor-trailers that blocked the westbound lanes of Interstate 68 on slippery Big Savage Mountain near the town of Finzel.

 

 

‘It’s like a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs up here,’ said Bill Wiltson, a Maryland State Police dispatcher.

 

 

Hundreds of miles from the storm’s center, gusts topping 60 mph prompted officials to close the port of Portland, Maine, and scaring away several cruise ships.

 

 

A state of emergency in New Hampshire prompted Vice President Joe Biden to cancel a rally in Keene and Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann, to call off her bus tour through the Granite State.

About 360,000 people in 30 Connecticut towns were urged to leave their homes under mandatory and voluntary evacuation orders. Christi McEldowney was among those who fled to a Fairfield shelter. She and other families brought tents for their children to play in.

 

 

‘There’s something about this storm,’ she said. ‘I feel it deep inside.’

 

 

Despite dire warnings and evacuation orders that began Saturday, many stayed put.

 

 

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie – whose own family had to move to the executive mansion after his home in Mendham, far from the storm’s center, lost power – criticized the mayor of Atlantic City for opening shelters there instead of forcing people out.

 

 

Eugenia Buono, 77, and her neighbor, Elaine DiCandio, 76, were among several dozen people who took shelter at South Kingstown High School in Narragansett, R.I. They live on Harbor Island, which is connected to the mainland by a causeway.

 

 

 

‘I’m not an idiot,’ said Buono, who survived hurricanes Carol in 1954 and Bob in 1991. ‘People are very foolish if they don’t leave.’

 

 

Reggie Thomas emerged this morning from his job as a maintenance supervisor at a prison near the overflowing Hudson River, a toothbrush in his front pocket, to find his 2011 Honda with its windows down and a foot (304 millimeters) of water inside.

 

 

‘It’s totaled,’ Thomas said, with a shrug. ‘You would have needed a boat last night.’

 

 

Today stock trading is closed in the U.S. again for a second day running – the last time the New York Stock Exchange was closed for weather was in 1985 because of Hurricane Gloria, and it will be the first time since 1888 that the exchange will have been closed for two consecutive days because of weather.

 

 

Residents in New York City spent much of yesterday trying to salvage normal routines, jogging and snapping pictures of the water while officials warned the worst of the storm had not hit. Water lapped over the seawall in Battery Park City, flooding rail yards, subway tracks, tunnels and roads.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NYC’S HISTORY OF HURRICANES

1821 Hurricane: Without modern technology, the hurricane in September, 1821, caught New Yorkers off guard when, in one hour, the tide rose 13 feet. The East River and Hudson River breached, with their waters meeting across Lower Manhattan. The area was not largely populated then, so there were few deaths

 

 

1893 Hurricane A Category 1 hurricane completely destroyed Hog Island, a resort island in southern Queens

 

 

1938 Hurricane Nearly 200 people were killed when the Category 3 hurricane swept over Long Island and into New England. It caused millions of dollars of damages in NYC, where it killed 10 people and destroyed hundreds of trees in Central Park

 

 

1954, Carol The hurricane, which had sustained winds of more than 100mph, hit eastern Long Island and caused major flooding throughout New York City

 

 

1955, Connie and Diane Rain from the two hurricanes caused flooding across the city. There were more than 200 deaths in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey

 

 

1960, Donna The hurricane created an 11-foot storm tide in the New York Harbor, inflicting extensive pier damage

 

 

1972, Agnes The tropical storm flooded areas from North Caroline to New York and caused 122 deaths and more than $6 billion in damage

 

 

1985, Gloria Serious damage was inflicted on Long Island

 

 

1996, Bertha The tropical storm washed out the city in July 1966

 

 

1999, Floyd The tropical storm hit New Jersey and New York with 60mph winds and dropped up to 15 inches of rain. Flash flooding forced residents from their homes

 

 

2011, Irene The hurricane was downgraded to a tropical storm just before hitting the city, which had issued mandatory evacuation orders for those living along the coast. Up to 7 inches of rain fell as winds reached 65 mph. It inflicted an estimated $100 million in damages

Streets in New York are littered with debris as the floodwaters subside. A record storm surge of more than 13 feet (4m) deluged lower Manhattan.

 

 

 

 

Residents continue to be evacuated from their homes along the coast. Many had chosen to ignore the mandatory evacuation notices issued on Monday.

 

 

 

 

Early morning in Cape May, New Jersey, the clear-up begins. Earthmovers clear sand from the coastal road flooded by the storm surge.

 

 

 

 

Much of New York’s public transport network was flooded. Here the waters burst through a lift shaft in a rail station in Hoboken, New Jersey. It could be days before it is fully functioning.

 

 

 

 

Firefighters were hampered by the floods in their attempts to bring under control a large fire which destroyed more than 50 homes in Queens, New York.

 

 

 

 

The damage caused by Sandy extended over a huge swathe of the East Coast. In Washington DC, early morning traffic rolls past an uprooted tree.

(TheBlaze/AP) — Much of New York was plunged into darkness Monday by a superstorm that overflowed the city’s historic waterfront, flooded the financial district and subway tunnels and cut power to nearly a million people.

 

 

 

 

The city had shut its mass transit system, schools, the stock exchange and Broadway and ordered hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers to leave home to get out of the way of the superstorm Sandy as it zeroed in on the nation’s largest city.

 

 

 

 

Residents spent much of the day trying to salvage normal routines, jogging and snapping pictures of the water while officials warned the worst of the storm had not hit.

 

 

 

 

By evening, a record 13-foot storm surge was threatening Manhattan’s southern tip, howling winds had sent a crane hanging from a high-rise, and utilities deliberately darkened part of downtown Manhattan to avoid storm damage.

 

 

 

 

Water lapped over the seawall in Battery Park City, flooding rail yards, subway tracks, tunnels and roads. Rescue workers floated bright orange rafts down flooded downtown streets, while police officers rolled slowly down the street with loudspeakers telling people to go home.

 

 

Here are some of the phenomenal photos that have emerged so far:

“Now it’s really turning into something,” said Brian Damianakes, taking shelter in an ATM vestibule and watching a trash can blow down the street in Battery Park.

 

 

 

 

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday night that the surge was expected to recede by midnight, after exceeding an original expectation of 11 feet.

 

 

 

 

“The worst of the weather has come,” he said. He said New Yorkers were inundating the 911 system and getting stranded in cars, and urged people to stay put until the storm passed.

 

 

 

 

“You have to stay wherever you are. Let me repeat that. You have to stay wherever you are,” he said.

 

 

Shortly after the massive storm made landfall in southern New Jersey, Consolidated Edison cut power deliberately to about 6,500 customers in downtown Manhattan to avert further damage. Then, huge swaths of the city went dark, losing power to 250,000 customers in Manhattan, Con Ed spokesman Chris Olert said.

 

 

 

 

New York University’s hospital lost backup power, Bloomberg said.

 

 

 

 

Another 1 million customers lost power earlier Monday in New York City, the northern suburbs and coastal Long Island, where floodwaters swamped cars, downed trees and put neighborhoods under water.

 

 

The storm had only killed one New York City resident by Monday night, a man who died when a tree fell on his home in the Flushing section of Queens.

 

 

 

 

The rains and howling winds, some believed to reach more than 95 mph, left a crane hanging off a luxury high-rise in midtown Manhattan, causing the evacuation of hundreds from a posh hotel and other buildings. Inspectors were climbing 74 flights of stairs to examine the crane hanging from the $1.5 billion.

 

 

 

 

Here are some additional photos, some of which, as Business Insider notes, have not been confirmed as authentic at this point:

 The facade of a four-story Manhattan building in the Chelsea neighborhood crumbled and collapsed suddenly, leaving the lights, couches, cabinets and desks inside visible from the street. No one was hurt, although some of the falling debris hit a car.

 On coastal Long Island, floodwaters swamped cars, downed trees and put neighborhoods under water as beachfronts and fishing villages bore the brunt of the storm. A police car was lost rescuing 14 people from the popular resort Fire Island.

 The city shut all three of its airports, its subways, schools, stock exchanges, Broadway theaters and closed several bridges and tunnels throughout the day as the weather worsened.

 On Long Island, floodwaters had begun to deluge some low-lying towns and nearly 150,000 customers had lost power. Cars floated along the streets of Long Beach and flooding consumed several blocks south of the bay, residents said.

 Gov. Andrew Cuomo, holding a news conference on Long Island where the lights flickered and his mike went in and out, said most of the National Guards deployed to the New York City area would go to Long Island.

“Long Island has become more and more vulnerable and the primary area of our concentration,” he said.
The center the storm, a combination of Sandy, a wintry system from the West and cold air streaming from the Arctic, threatened to knock out the underground network of power, phone and high-speed Internet lines that are the lifeblood of America’s financial capital.

See more photos from New York City last night and read about the power outages and flooding in Jason Howerton’s post on TheBlaze here.

 

 

 

 

Although mainstream professional photographers have been documenting the storm from its inception and will continue to do so into its aftermath, everyday citizens have snapped stunning images of the historic storm as well. There was even a spinoff of the popular photo filter and sharing site Instagram called “Instacane” (Editor’s note: some on the website are photoshopped, while others are legitimate). Here are a couple.

Jesse Schafer and Greg McHale, who run the website On the Real NY (via Instagram), have many photographs of the storm Monday night and into Tuesday. Given that there are a slew of fake photos from the storm circulating on the web (check those out here), there have been questions raised about the validity of the On the Real NY photos, given that they look very bright during a night storm that was supposedly in a blackout. On Instagram, the photos have been defended with some saying a long-exposure technique was used to let more light in.

Time-lapsed videos are being created as well. Check out this one compiled from photos from the New York Times’ live webcam running from the early morning hours of Monday through 7:45 a.m. Tuesday:

 

 

CNN pulled together this compilation of video clips of the storm at various locations:

 

 

Early morning photos of the aftermath are trickling in as well.
