Where in Manhattan? I have seen a few pics of lower Manhattan with cars flooded almost to their tops.
Other than trees being down all well here in northeastern Queens. Amazing how a few miles makes a big difference. Flew in to Jfk yesterday afternoon and the view from the air of the south shore was sobering. Boats strewn about everywhere like bathtub toys. I escaped with the minor inconvenience of having to wait for a flight home and no more. I was "stuck" in California riding Highway 1 and tasting fine wines. If there was ever a way to beat a storm this would have to be one of the the all time greatest.
My job site came away unscathed as well. I've worked on/in much of the infrastructure of NYC (including all the tunnels and many subway stations/tunnels and pumping facilities) and I can tell you the task of pumping out the water and restarting the mechanical systems is going to be a monumental undertaking. The piers have been inspected by the CG and have started receiving gasoline deliveries as of about 6 hours ago, on a high priority basis. Hopefully some normalcy will return by Monday.
Have to add some information regarding fuel off loading in Perh Amboy NJ.
The CG inspected the piers and gave the OK yesterday but subsequently discovered that there are containers from a nearby dock missing and presumed to be submerged in the port. The servers housing documentation are under water so nobody knows how many or which containers may be underwater, so the CG is surveying the port bottom. Having a tanker strike a submerged container could cause a bad situation to get worse. Additionally the fire pumps were down. Some service restored today with additional capacity tomorrow. Several maritime laws have been suspended in order to get fuel into the port from all over the country & beyond. At the moment there are several tankers anchored off shore waiting to be brought in.
Hoping to see some improvement in supply by Sunday night
