Good luck everyone. I actually work for FEMA but over on the west coast. Their not messing around and there are a ton or resources being funneled to the east coast for response and recovery right now. There's also a bunch of interagency coordination with the army and the guards. Good luck and stay safe!

I think the broken crane in NY might be becoming a huge story.

The low-lying part of my neighborhood was just ordered to evacuate (presumably for flooding). My neighborhood is right on a stream that's literally a few hundred yards from the Potomac. With rain + surge, I figured it was a matter of time, as it tends to flood during less-severe storms. Fortunately a) my building is on slightly higher ground and b) I'm on the 14th floor anyway.

Saw this quote.

"It could be bad," said U.S. Coast Guard Rear Adm. Steven Rattior, "or it could be devastation."

If the best hope is "It could be bad". Hang on to your ass.

I'm in Manhattan, but haven't started working yet. The wind is raging bad. No updates on that crane, but if it topples off the building there could be problems. We're expecting to flood here tonight.

Lower manhattan is long overdue for some flooding. Hope it doesn't get the White Horse Tavern on bridge street, or I will have to find another place to meet my buddy for lunch once a month.

I watched a Discovery channel show about a hurricane hitting manhattan at high tide. The outcome was not pretty.
