I'm now hearing rumors about 4ft of water (and rising) in the subway system... That could be devastating for the city of NY... Losing the subway system could, and would, be crippling to them
I don't think it's rumours..it's been on the news already as I previously posted.
Eitherway, any water that gets down there is bad news. Apparently the salt water is very damaging to the tracks and related components.
And they are saying that it could take as long as 29 days, a month, to pump out the water from the subway system alone. Never mind actually repairing it and getting it running again.
That's going to be a massive shock for the worlds busiest transport system.

You don't need our help mate, we are a nation of 22M and we took care of our mega floods in early 2011 in the aftermarth of Cyclone Yasi that declared an emergency of 3/4 of a whole state so I'm sure with a population of 314,655M in the USA you'll be just fine without us.
