Hurricane Sandy is due to land in New York city around now. Forecasters are predicting that 90mph winds and a storm surge of 6 to 8 feet will arrive over the next few hours, resulting in severe local flooding. The city has been forced to shut down its subway service and close both the Holland and Brooklyn Battery Tunnels. Bus and subway services are also not operating.
Many New York residents have moved to safety, and we fervently hope that those members of the Wetpixel community that are caught up in the storm are, together with their loved ones, in a place of safety and that any property or business loss will be limited. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
