Thank you to everyone who checked in with me yesterday and this morning. I live on the Upper East Side and did not lose power or experience flooding. The wind was intense though and the tree on my street was not so lucky. There were some rumors that all of New York lost power. ConEd preemptively shut off the power to most of lower Manhattan and areas in flood Zone A to prevent transformer explosions and electrical fires. The storm surge has flooded many areas and the clean up is going to take days. If you would like to assist with the relief efforts, you can make a much needed donation to the Red Cross.
