STAY OUT OF THE WATER ON THE GROUND FLOORS.

People are getting electrocuted by wandering in flood waters.

CON Edison can not get the live lines (four) turned off in Hoboken NJ

Stay out of water.


THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF VOLTS IN THE WATER AROUND HOBOKEN NJ

If you are there, MOVE UPSTAIRS. Do NOT go out to check your car

The city is flooded from both ends, the power crews can not get in to turn off the juice.

If you see the lights go out, dont think it will stay like that, there are auto re start protocols at the transfer stations and sub outlets. It CAN SPIKE POWER AGAIN, untill its amp loaded and tripped or blows up.

DO NOT TRUST ANYTHING THATS WET. Seriously this kind of juice can fry you instantly.

Heavy flooding, multiple rescues in progress, possible electrocution. Many areas inaccessible to responders. Two officers stranded at Stat. Is. Ferry Terminal, fuel in the area. Blackouts in Lower Manhattan, unit reported explosion at Con Edison plant.

I am hoping that the Con Edison plant in question is a coal facility.

Can't imagine what the rats would be doing, naturally they would be trying to get to hire ground.

Not a big fan of rats......

Listening to Marty Markowitz Brooklyn Borough President with Erin on CNN saying something about Coney Island Hospital has or had a fire and fire dept couldn't respond due to flooding. If Ocean Parkway is flooded all the way to Coney Island hospital, then that is some serious flooding happening in Brooklyn. Belt Parkway must also be flooded in some parts.

My mom in Borough Park is not affected by flooding and still has power as of the last we spoke, as well as family in South Ozone Park near JFK still had power.

i would imagine the rats would have allready left the city before all this went down,evidently a warning just went out to not drink any of the water even if boiled near long beach i think the guy said but thats kind of scary to hear and they have yet to update the hospital situation,and he is advising that you should only call 911 for life threaneing emergencys

A train has derailed in Kentucky, prompting a level 3 hazmat situation.. Not sure if the derailment is related to the winter storm that is a part of this system, but it's worth paying attention to.

I am down here in the Chesapeake Bay area, and not much happened, so my coworker and I drove up to Washington DC, drove all over the area, saw all of the major buildings and then drove back to California, MD.

I can report that other than high winds, we didn't see anything. At all.

That would be quite an 'adjustment' to make.....for the suburbanites.
They'll probably end up at the edge of civilization in the End knawing on their own tails.
Though this could be Good for their health, both mental and physical.
To be Rat, I would imagine it would take some thick skin!!!!!

Have some mice (no rats) on the farm though their quite clean.
My Cats keep them in check.
It's entertaining to watch them pounce, smack em around and tear them apart.

They can ruin a hArvest you know.....spread a virus or thrice.

DO NOT CONSUME WATER IN LONG BEACH - it's been contaminated. Do NOT try and boil it either, do not brush your teeth.

Get bottled water. This is what the reporters are now saying.

Thanks everyone for all the help. It's been real mild so far. ALthough the rain has picked up as has the wind. Not nearly as badly as it was during the summer months of storms so far.

I am more concerned for the safety of those dealing with the impact of the storm.

To be sure... I am just thinking ahead to tomorrow and the following days.

Reports are saying that there is an evacuation in progress at NYU hospital.

I believe he meant he was hoping it was not a nuke plant.
That's the way I read it.

No, the rain doesn't extend past Lexington, Kentucky with the snow/rain mix further east. The train derailment is about 15-20 minutes southwest of Louisville. I'm 45 minutes south and the weather hasn't been bad, with the exception of a little bit of wind earlier this evening.

I heard about a power plant faltering... First, has anyone heard about this? Second, if you have, was it a nuclear plant?

How would the rats have left early, did they get a pre- warning as well?


There must be millions of them down there in the subways, sewers underground. well there used to be anyway until they were forced to higher ground due to water

The only rats that left early that I know of are the ones from the trading floor of the NYSE
