BTW, did the PANYNJ reported any floodings of the lobby of this building, or basement facilities?

the governor is on live now and said he was concerned about the structural pit of the site, due to acceleration of the water but it seems fine. there's been reported flooding of the path trains of the site, not sure the extent yet. right now it's a search and rescue effort in the city.

I wonder if the Memorial Fountains are also flooded?

or did they design a system that will catch the water and neatly carry it out and away?

It's Sandy's fury. She's a horrible ghost of this Halloween.

Closest available picture of the World Trade Center.
This is the lobby of the Verizon Building next door to One World Trade Center last night.

LINK to web-page
I have very little doubt that the lobby of One World Trade Center looked the same, meaning that the entire basement would be under water. This is hopefully the most extreme disaster we'll ever see occur here. No pictures of the site are available at the moment. Hopefully the return of power will allow us to see just how bad it is.
Found a photo by the PANYNJ on twitter showing a location near the site at Greenwich St. and Albany St.:

Note: this is a picture apparently taken BEFORE the power failure, the water may have been higher.

This is the waiting site for memorial visitors, you can see the World Center Hotel in the upper right corner.

All I can say is SAD, and surreal at the sametime Mother Nature can be a BIT#@

One cam on the KPI monitoring is still up. But not much to see on it except that all the water is gone now and the buildings are still without power.

It's the "1 wtc side" cam

Sorry for off topic, but: Does anyone know (I can't remeber the name) how our friend in Breezy Point is? I have been looking at all the fires there and I thought of him.
