Pumping water out of flooded tunnels would take anywhere from 14 hours to four days, MTA officials said. And that task would be followed by even more painstaking work—evaluating damage, then cleaning and repairing or replacing the electronic signal arrays that line every inch of the subway tracks, and which are essential to running the system's trains.

"You can't order a part from Westinghouse or General Electric GE -0.71% that is 100 years old," Mr. Jacob said. MTA workers will have to clean and test flooded equipment, "then you cross your fingers and hope that it works," he said.

Me too, right up against the house. As far as I can tell minimal damage to the house but way to dangerous to be outside as trees are falling all over the place.

Fortunate enough to have stayed dry and retain power so far on the UES. Got some friends in Brooklyn and downtown who are flooded and blacked out. Hope everyone can get back to normalcy soon. What's the latest on the storm?

As one of my buddies said earlier: "When we moved to NC, all we heard from our NY friends was 'but they have hurricanes!' So yeah, there's that."

But seriously, I hope everyone has stayed/is staying safe up there.

Last I saw on the news there was ~625k without power on the Island. Most of my town and the bordering towns are without power, so it seems that I've lucked out so far by only having a few surges.

The only town I've seen mentioned on the news (I haven't watched more than 10 minutes or so) is Lindenhurst, which seemed to be in pretty bad shape due to floods.

hope that everybody is safe!

bergen county levee broke around midnight. dunno how serious that may be, but they said 3 towns are being evacuated off their rooftops (not sure what 3). fires everywhere.

the queens fire videos are insane (CNN just said 24 homes are on fire and that 50 homes have already burned to the ground).

i have a few friends who were evacuated out of their house in a boat near seaside (brick).

make you guys avoid running your cars until they dry out if at all possible, and do whatever you can to help them dry faster.

mad respect to the emergency workers/city workers out there doing work.

**not an actual levee, just some natural wall
