Frankenstorm Sandy

Here are various links and pictures from the megastorm Sandy.  We hope you are safe...  

In any case, here's a quick update on "Frankenstorm" Sandy.  The megastorm swept up along the entire US eastern seaboard and it's huge radius impacted everywhere from North Carolina to Maine -- eventually making landfall near Atlantic City, NJ and crossing almost directly over Philadelphia.  Almost 10 million are without power -- and many without water.  

The storm has really been a crazy one.  In addition to the heavy winds, rain, and flooding, a combination of storms and arctic winds from the north and west -- have also dumped up to a few feet of snow in areas as widespread as W. Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Pittsburgh (and sleet in Virginia)...  Many major roads in the area are closed.      

Here's a scary video of the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel getting flooded.  http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=50134146n&tag=api
