I hate to be the one to ask....but how long does it take for Sea Water to totally destroy metal for all useful purposes, if it's not treated specifically to resist it? I've heard Navy guys say a gun going over the side, even at the pier, is worthless in a shockingly short period of time spent in ocean water?

Those who are inexperienced can't resist to venture outside and take a peek. In Florida we start curfews to help with this but there are those who still go out , then we end up trying to peel them out of power lines or trees.
Flying objects come from no where, take you out like a gunshot.

All I have to say is, yikes, here are a few updates that I have just seen on CBCNews National. They report that the winds from Sandy could be felt 1000km away.

I'm not sure why the firefighters were at the location. It looks like there is caution tape in front of the building.
A tourist staying in the building said she first noticed pieces falling from the ceiling.
“It’s an old building. It creaks and things, so initially we didn’t think anything was going on,” said the tourist, Natasha Stelmaszek, 56, of Seattle.
She went outside to take a look at the building, which has a business on the first floor, and noticed a crack.
“I decided to go upstairs to the fourth floor and then down to the second to let everyone know,” she said.
“And as a group, we just figured it was time to get out.”
The building has had numerous violations, including one in August for doing a two-story extension without a permit.
