    Has anybody heard anything from our Reefing friends on the East Coast.

    My thoughts and prayers are with all in this extremely difficult time! Hope you are safe from Sandy's fury!

    Paul B posteb this at 7:10 SA time this morning. (I dont know how to quote in a nother thred)

    To update, we have no power for about 6 hours, I am running the generator intermittingly. Lower Manhattan is flooded with 6' of seawater. Cars are floating near Wall Street. The Brooklyn Battery tunnel is flooded al the other ways into the city are closed. Many subways are flooded and there are explosions all over the city as transformers flood and explode. A power station outside NYU hospital just exploded and they are evacuating patients.
    A 4 story building a couple of blocks from my Daughters home on 14th St had the entire front collapse.
    The square rigged ship that was used in the Movie "Mutiny on the Bounty" sunk.
    I will try to post in the morning

    Ummm ok ....

    Check here and read the comments

    The last time any shark was found close to NJ was ages ago. There been sightings yes but thats about it. Only in 1916 was there 4 people killed by a shark.

    Same as this pic (been used before)

    Here now, damage on the coast front is quite extensive and they still cleaning up. Subway is screwed and the NYC Stock exchange took a little hammering nothing to heavy the bull is still there; )

    It was a massive storm. I came the other way over the north pole and even then the captain came out to rest after doing his 7hours at the seat, I was chatting to him. He said that they had warnings on all their flights for the turbulence this thing causes world wide. Interesting how the storm effected areas deemed to be far away.

    :lol: Why are we so obsessed with sharks? Going to photoshop a pic of a shower shaped house at Jacob Zuma's homestead!

    But, on a serious note, wishing the best for ALL affected by Sandy.
