Sandy Update

downtown AC by boardwalk flooding
Atlantic City is flooded! Entire city has water now.
Huge surges and 30 foot waves are pounding the Atlantic coast. Beaches and dunes are being decimated and our dunes are huge. It is thought that by tonight all the dunes will be gone.

Sandy will hit at 6PM .. just a little over one hour to go.

Long Island has 175,000 without power as of now.
My lights are flickering on and off.
Winds are now  up to 86MPH.

  1. I was wondering how you were doing. Ive been online all day finding sites to all this in NJ. I have most of my family still there. I have a cousin in Egg Harbor that I think finally evacuated. Last I talked to her she said end of her street had been already. Your not too far from water...are you still there or moved to higher ground?

    My mom and bro are in PA. just across the river. So far everything is ok there but of course as this moves across the states, we will see how it goes. Hope your in a safe and high place. Ill check back if I can to see whats new.
