ABC news said a building collapsed in Manhattan but they lost the satellite link with Chris Cuomo before he could report the details.

EDIT: It was apparently just one face of a building.

Watching WABC right now, the Hudson has flooded Jersey City. NYC is starting to flood and high tide isn't until 9pm.

Still have power thankfully, according to the weather dudes winds should start to subside here around 9PM, so a few more hours and some improvement will start. Not a ton of rain.

Love the Statue of Liberty pics.
The dogs were freaking out. My housemate's dog is pretty chill normally, and she's snoozing on the couch, but we've got a friend's dog staying over here while she's at work, and he went outside for a few minutes, barked at the sky, went back inside and shit on the floor. Poor bastard. He's generally rather anxious in places that aren't his home without storms and stuff going on. We've had some good gusts of wind that were moreso than usual, off and on rain all day, but so far nothing here even remotely interesting.

Water level at the Battery is at 12.5 feet with still an hour to go before high tide.

Already a record... water would rise another foot on a normal, calm sunny day by the time high tide hits, and that's without, ya know, a hurricane.

Shits getting real.

There was also a guy on a jet ski earlier. Some people shouldn't reproduce.
