New York City has undergone a torrential storm that left six people dead and stranded close to a million residents without power. The city’s transportation system is crippled.

The storm surge was made worse by a higher full-moon tide, with the peak of the flooding lower Manhattan and other low-lying areas by 8 PM.

Large parts of Manhattan below midtown are now in the dark after a reported explosion that may have been at a Con Ed building, reported The Gothamist. “Huge explosion at 14th St. All of downtown is now dark,” tweeted the website’s correspondent. Another witness saw a “massive explosion here in LES then all went dark.”

As of early Tuesday morning, there are numerous reports of residents trapped in their homes facing the high waters that submerged many parts of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Staten Island, and the Rockaways. The Fire Department is forced to reach those trapped by boat.

According to the NY Post, water gushed into the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel and cars were floating in the streets. There was no dry land anywhere in the Rockaways, where cops in the 100th Precinct station house were trapped on the building’s second floor.

A 29-year-old man was killed in his Flushing, Queens, home when a tree fell into the building. Three children were killed when a tree fell in North Salem. A woman was electrocuted after stepping into a puddle on 105th Avenue in South Richmond Hill.

NYU Langone Medical Center is dark after the backup generators failed. Patients had to be moved to nearby facilities.

All MTA trains and buses are down.

    of course it is Obama's fault he approved same sex marriages and abortions, and thinks his wisdom is greater than the wisdom of God.

  4. Edward Lobel says:

    first of all "I TOLD YOU SO" (I beat you to the punch!)
    Secondly – Yes you are right, he does approve of of same sex marriages and abortions, but then again so do I and you didn't blame the horrors of Sandy on me.
    Lastly – If you think g-d gave you wisdom to think the way you do (and you are apparently wrong in your thinking,) then why do you think Barack Obama does not have lots of wisdom, certainly more than you. Did you make Harvard Law Review or were you ever Editor of the Harvard Law Journal?
