Did Crakeur check in? I am sure he is without power.
i'm already hearing confirmed reports of people posing as con ed workers around brighton beach burglarizing people's homes. if anybody's reading this around the brooklyn area, your best bet is to stay inside for the time being.

don't believe all the things you're hearing. there's been a bunch of false tweets and other reports surrounding the storm.
like last night's flooded stock exchange, not everything is true.
while I would expect there's going to be some crime, for the most part, the city is as it always is only there's limited power and the stores are mostly closed.

Is this thing over and done for us or are we having more harsh weather later today? I'm just wondering because at least here flooding is minimal and everything's calm now but the clouds are still overcast so it makes me wonder if we're in store for more or not.

you're coming a little too close to implying that i'm making things up. do you live here? do you personally know people in the brighton beach area? because i do, and this is exactly what they had told me to look out for. this is a live sandy thread right? where people post information that others in the afflicted areas can find useful. that's exactly what i was doing, to try and keep others in the brooklyn area aware. seriously, what was the point of that post? you think i'm going to be fear mongering for no reason when i live right here and have been giving live updates all night long?
reevaluate your analysis. you're picking the wrong line of conversation.

thank you for this. I can't do much since I am not there to help my family. My sister is in Brooklyn and has friends in that area. I told her via crap book, and I feel better for giving her the heads up. There is no reason you would make that up IMO. Thank you.
If you have any more updates on the Brooklyn area, upper Manhattan, or Westchester, I would be very grateful. All I can do is relay information, and this helps. I feel at least like we are being pro-active, and for me, keeps me from going insane.
