All indications are that Hurricane Sandy and related storms are going to wallop New York City—unlike the overhyped much ado about nuttin' from last year's Hurricane Irene. As of 7 p.m. Sunday, subways and other regional trains are shutting down, with buses following at 9 p.m. Schools are already closed on Monday...
In addition, NYC Mayor Bloomberg has ordered evacuation of low-lying areas of New York, including Battery Park City and stretches of the West Side waterfront, the Lower East Side and East Village in Manhattan.
The storm is being called dangerous and potential devastating, with water rising as high as 10 feet in lower Manhattan, Long Island, Coney Island, Staten Island and into New York Harbor.
