I'm very lucky so far. In Williamsville and as of 11:20, it's rainy but not pounding. It's windy but not very forceful. Probably 20-30 mph. Have power, have water, have heat. Again, very lucky so far.

I've been seeing pictures of NYC, and it's just eerie seeing the "city that never sleeps" without anything on the streets.

Yea, I've been flipping back n forth between the Sabres classic games on MSG (Devils/Sabres 1994 4 OT game) and Fox News weather coverage. Manhattan is flooding big time! Subways, WTC site, lower Manhattan. Also a crane in broken and dangling 70 feet about the ground. An electric power plant exploded. It's ugly in the big apple tonight!

Safe with sustained power throughout. No flooding. No property damage.

That crane at One57 is still dangling last I checked, while lower Manhattan and Brooklyn remain blacked-out and flooded with potential headaches at medical centers being reported by FDNY: NYU Langone had backup failure and is being evacuated to Mount Sinai; Coney Island has an unconfirmed fire; Manhattan and Bellevue with outages; nursing home rescues, etc.

Unfortunately, salt water did surge its way into the subway tunnels, so that damage will take some time for the MTA to assess, pump out and repair. Regardless, work is only a half-mile or so walk for both me and my wife, so no real inconvenience there.

Also, good luck to everyone with whatever rain, wind and/or surge comes your way. Stay safe.

Good to hear that you guys are okay. New York looks pretty beat up from the Twitter images I've seen.

All in all went better then expected where I am....the worst damage was that there are no longer leaves on the trees. Did anybody else see the picture of the shark swimming in somebodys yard in NJ?

Power, gas, and internet all good here in East Amherst / Clarence. Phew.

High 40s for trick or treating, too. Not awful.

The suspect tree stayed up, although it was wobbling pretty good for a while. Most of the other trees on the north side of the property ended up cutting the wind pretty good, so thankfully the house didn't get hit very hard.

Couple of neighbors have some minor yard messes, but everyone close to me did ok.

Creek is up about 3 feet, but still in it's banks. Thankfully it would have to come up about another 8' before it got close to the house, an if that happened most of the neighborhood would be toast.

This Morning was 40 with wind. I broke out thermal level III, which is long sleeve base layer, running jacket, bacalava, and long sleeve gloves. I will probably have up to thermal level 7 or 8 when it gets chilly.

Photoshop or from another event. Saw the same pic last year.

Sister with house on New Jersey barrier Island (Long Beach Island) midway up the coast just reported and her only damage was a window that blew out on the top story. The Island is 20 miles long and only one mile wide at its widest. Where they live the bay and ocean are separated by about 15 houses and a two lane road. Apparantly they are on high ground as they had little water intake. Dunes about 10 feet high where they are prevented the surge from inundating the Island to meet with the bay waters. Very lucky. Severe damage all over the Island. Will probably see some of it heading there for Thanksgiving.

In Buffalo, yes. But the rest of the East coast got hit pretty hard.

We'd have a different opinion if we were on the Atlantic coast.

Not too much in Lackawanna, just a little wind and rain and a 4 second power loss. My professors still panicked yesterday and cancelled today's classes though.

Trying to get in touch with a few of the people I know on the coast.

Differenty and much, much worse, for people outside of our area. The October storm did not significantly impact 14 states, cause 7 million to be without power. Just because we dont see it first hand doesn't mean it was not one of the most devastating storms of our lifetime.
