EarthCam::Hurricane Sandy has caused widespread power outages in New York City, causing our World Trade Center cameras to go offline. Our host, The Millenium Hilton, currently does not have power, but we expect it to return shortly. When power is restored, our crews will inspect the cameras and get them back online for all of you as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience and understanding during this time.

Shocking this! We have seen many youtube updates from this point from "NYBOY1975", is he alright?

So sad to see all this severely affected communities in Queens and Staten Island but also all the communities in New Jersey.

If they erect dunes and dams this can be prevented in the future. Check out this difference:

A coastline without dunes (while you can also erect artificial dunes in the future) makes a huge difference:

I'm increasingly worried about him. He hasn't reported here since the storm. NYBOY, please let us know that you are alright.

I know it's a bit off topic, but that clock-tower is actually a very expensive penthouse and must offer staggering views of lower Manhattan. Check the link.
