Well we didn’t lose power more than a few seconds here and there! A few friends weren’t so lucky, one friend lost power around 8pm and still is without power now.
We haven’t gone out yet either but we will be a little later. I think our worst damage is downed trees, wires and blown transformers.
anymore updates? happy to hear the good updates so far on this thread and others. East coast bees! check in!
MA had wind, rain, and of course some power outages but no where near NY/NJ. It breaks my heart seeing the photos, peoples homes are ruined. 22 deaths for an updated US death toll.
The hospital that had to evacuate – OMG, I couldn’t even imagine. I work in a hosptial and it would have been mayhem! Shout out to all those nurses/respiratory therapists!
Washington, DC (District of Columbia) is the Nation’s Capital and located on the East Coast of the USA … Seattle, is a city on the West Coast within the State of Washington.
The two are aprox 4444 Kms (2761 Miles) apart = http://goo.gl/maps/2cDqN
And although they may be getting a fair bit of rain, it isn’t related to Hurricane Sandy… here then is the Hurricane’s track (now a Tropical Storm) and the weather that she is bringing to the USA (and Canada). You can also see the rain on the West Coast in and around Seattle, in this weather forecast from the National Weather Centre = http://www.hpc.ncep.noaa.gov/html/sfcloop/radsfcus_exp_test.html
Hope this helps,
Another bee from NOVA and all is well. We never lost power – just rain and a few hours of heavy gusts. Nothing too bad though, didn’t even lose anything off of our deck.
This morning the sun is shining… and a balmy 18 C (65 F) which is unusual for this late in October. We still are getting occasional gusts of wind. Currently we are between bands (in the pic below, Eastern Ontario is the “grey” triangle with nothing happening). By later this afternoon, we should be getting more rain and wind, as the bands get closer together.
By tonight we’ll be in the thick of things… a Tropical Depression that will see us get rain for the next 4 Days (with the possibility of snow as the thermometer is due to plummet down to 0 C = 32 F)
We made it through okay in NY! We lost part of our roof and have some leaking into the house/walls. We have power and are OKAY .. so that’s what matters!
Upstate NY here, we were EXTREMELY lucky and our area was fine, but not too far from us thousands lost power and who knows what else? Very thankful today!!
Central NY was spared, we were supposed to get hit much much worse, but it looks like it headed more southwest of me. We got some decent rain and wind yesterday, but never lost power and haven’t heard of a lot of damage. Thoughts go out to those in Long Island and other areas that got hit hard though!
The power is out in the basement apartment I share with SO. Our landlord says it could be days before it comes back on. So I am staying with my parents for the next few days and SO is staying with his mother & brother. A LOT of LI is without power, but by some miracle my parents’ house has it and so does SO’s mom. As far as I know, I will have to go back to work tomorrow. But considering that being back at “home” is reminding me why I was so glad to move out the first time, being at work might not be such a bad thing after all 😉
Thanking God for me and my family’s safety. Very thankful that there wasn’t a lot of damage to our home. Had a few flickers, but power never went out. Wind gusts were very scary. A large tree fell in our backyard. Last night, across my house we spotted literally 10 turkeys trying to find a place to protect themselves! All in a line following each other finding shelter under the pine trees.
SO’s place has no hot water or power since 3pm yesterday. Same for my sister and her family.
Thinking of all those affected by Sandy and sending positive thoughts to you all! Be safe. x
Just drove out to get Neato Burrito and saw a lot of branches and leaves but it doesn’t look too bad! It’s pretty cold compared to the last time I was outside though. Dropped from mid 50’s to low 40’s. Trick or Treat for LA township is rescheduled for Saturday November 3rd 2-4pm.
In a little while I’m going to head to the mall so I’ll see if theres any damage in the other direction. I still have a bunch of friends without power at this point.
Hope everyone and everyones homes and cars are okay!
Just checking in bees! Just strong winds and rain on my side of town. I live in upper Manhattan and its not too bad here. I know downtown and lower Manhattan is still bad with lots of flooding. No trains running yet, possibly buses will resume later this evening, but unsure yet. Some bridges are closed but they have opened a few lately. Thoughts and prayers for those affected by Sandy!!
I live in Manhattan, too, but uptown. We are on higher ground here, and were very lucky – made it through with no broken windows or power outages. A lot of downed trees in the neighborhood, but from what I’ve seen they were smaller ones, and didn’t take out any houses.
The Mayor said to expect the subways down for the rest of the week though!
