No need to click... Just move your mouse from side 2 side over each picture...
to all those affected. These pictures are astonishing.
Thank you for posting this link!
Yes, thanks for the link.
My daughter (grown with kids) was very happy to see that Marty's Playland in Ocean City, MD made out ok, even though it's now beach-front until they push the beach out of the parking lot!
I really feel for those up north that got the worst of Sandy.
Really makes me thankful for the beautiful mostly calm weather that we have year around in Tucson even more than I already did.
GPS came in handy for navigating to sidestreets to sidestep streets closed-off from storm damage.
My wife and I were lucky to have vacationed just a week before the hurricane hit.
A family member has a condo at the southern tip of Longport. Fortunately, the condo was on the 3rd floor - no damage. Unfortunately, all the power, elevators, etc in the basement was flooded. It'll be a long time before the building is up & operating once again.
Some have lost everything. A sad saga of American life for a long time to come.
Been away for awhile, had no power or phone for 7 days thanks to Hurricane Sandy. There are still people without power for two weeks now. The devastation this storm has caused is indescribale.
Click on the liink below to reveal some really depessing sights. Near the end they show a pic of the NYC 86th street subway station. I used that subway many years ago and the water is above the platform. That platform is at least 5 feet high.
Was that 86th Street subway station in Brooklyn or Manhattan?
All I can say is WOW!!! Such devistation.
Lets see how this gov't is going to help OUR PEOPLE on this!
As far as I know from the feedback of some of my coworkers who were directly affected by Sandy, FEMA seems to be doing a good job but this is still early in the rebuilding stage.
No matter how well FEMA does, much of what you see will not be rebuilt. Heavy damage in a home by the ocean is only partly covered by flood insurance, not homeowners insurance. Towns will not permit rebuilding like for like for a future storm to do the same. Insurance may not be available in the future at any price at many locations.
I'm part of the Coast Guard Aux and had stopped off at the shore on the way down to Atlantic City this weekend. When I got to the shore, I had a US Army Private give me a tour of the area. I felt like I was driving through a war zone. There were in fact a lot of contracters working on houses but it's going to take a long long time to get to any sort of norm.
It has to be the Brooklyn station.
I used to take the one in Manhattan (Lexington Ave Line) which is far nicer than that one pictured.
My point was the water exceded the height of the platform which iis the same for all stations.
Three weeks late NYC still has Odd\Even plate gas rationing whereas everywhere else (NJ & Long Island) have recinded it.
most of the gas stations are up and running. No lines.
R Train - Bay Ridge I believe.
and the devastation here was awful...we were without power for 5 days and when it came back on we were watching TV news for the first time in those 5 days...when I saw the pics from places I had known from the Jersey Shore it looked like Beirut...unbelievable ;(
