Millions without power and standing in shoulder high waters...

But American Apparel saw this as a good opportunity to have a hurricane storm sale...
The perfect time to offer a sale to customers is, of course, in the middle of a hurricane, right?

Late Monday night, as much of the eastern U.S. seaboard was being pelted by the winds, rain and waves of Hurricane Sandy, several retailers were sending eblasts to their customers to let them know they were holding inclement weather sales. The most prominent notice came from American Apparel. The ad, which featured the verbiage, "In case you're bored in the storm, 20% off everything for the next 36 hours," was reportedly sent to fans of the retailer in the exact states where Hurricane Sandy was set to do the most damage -- New Jersey and New York (among others).

Notice of the sale drew the ire of many a Twitterer, including @MikeFerri who said, "American Apparel is pathetic." Not to be outdone, @buzzbishop said, "@americanapparel will soon be hiring a new marketing director. Yes, they just email blasted a 'Hurricane Sandy Sale.'"

But it wasn't just American Apparel who posted a "Hurricane Sandy" deal on their website. Complex.com has a list of "11 Hurricane Sales Worth Taking Advantage Of." Discounts of note involve Asos, Club Monaco and Levi's.

This isn't the first time American Apparel has come under fire for a marketing campaign. Some of the company's ads have been banned in the U.K. for being too exploitive and provocative while others have been criticized for being overly Photoshopped.
I mean you really think n*ggas tomorrow, are going to get up out of there bed... And say hey that American Apparel shirt is on sale today, im going to swim over to broadway and get it...

Btw the American Apparel is literally swimming in 8ft+ of water.... Im sure in the next 36 hrs that their sale is expected to last for, n*ggas will be concerned with copping gear.

Cause obviously 20% off a bathing suit thats already wet, is perfect for NYC right now.
Cuz we gonna see biitches like this in the morning...

Not that easy, you cant fix nyc electricity without doing massive amount of road work, they are gonna have to dig up street by street, and remove and replace damaged equipment. The wires and equipment is sitting in salt water, the dirt and stuff will erode.

The trains i cannot see how we will have a fully function MTA in less than 3-4 weeks. Because they have to remove/wait for the water to dry, there is no way to pump water out of the tunnels easily. The salt water will corrode the equipment, if tracks have been sitting in water, they will have to be replaced, other wise its dangerous. Having the rivets in salt water for a couple days isnt safe.

Over all parts of the city will be shut down for months. My biggest concern is this water, and when its going to drain out. Cause katrina had standing water for a min. If we have standing water like that for even the rest of the week... Man idk. Some streets are collapsing under because of the water, a lot of blocks actually. under the streets get to wet, and the gavel part just caves in.

Bad times man.

Did you tell your teachers to give you the pop up books version in school? I hope when someone goes to read something at your funeral they get interrupted by someone saying "give us the short version". And then I hope you're buried by the portable toilet.

Rain stopped but will continue in the morning through tomorrow.


Update

NEW YORK CITY

Hundreds of thousands of Con Ed customers were without power Monday night, including 17,000 in the Bronx, 19,000 in Brooklyn, 250,000 in Manhattan, 35,000 in Queens and 38,000 in Staten Island. Con Ed shut off power pre-emptively to residents in Brighton Beach and in lower Manhattan.
Con Ed preemptively shut off power to parts of lower Manhattan to lessen storm damage to some underground networks. But the majority of outages in Manhattan were caused by an explosion at a substation at East 14th Street. Con Ed officials were uncertain whether the explosion had been caused by flooding, or perhaps flying debris.
Con Ed's steam station on East 14th Street was under water Monday night.
A man in Flushing, Queens, and a woman in South Richmond Hill, Queens, died after coming into contact with wires in a flooded area, officials said.
Hundreds of thousands of people live in New York City's primary evacuation zone, shown in orange on this map.
Monday morning about 3,100 people were staying in 76 city shelters. Locations can be found on the city's website or by calling 311.
The mayor said heat, hot water and elevators were shut off in 26 public housing developments located in the primary zone, and said buses were brought to take those 45,000 people to shelters.
The World Trade Center site, located in the vulnerable zone, was inspected Monday by Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The site is ready with pumps and thousands of sandbags, he said.
The city's 1.1 million-pupil school system, the largest in the nation, was closed Monday and Tuesday.
City parks are closed.
The city is under a high wind warning from 6 a.m. Monday to 6 p.m. Tuesday, the National Weather Service said.
Con Ed said said it would shut off some steam lines in parts of Manhattan, fearing cold water flooding could burst hot lines.
PATH Train service remains suspended indefinitely, the Port Authority said.

LONG ISLAND

Long Island Power Authority reported more than 250,000 customers without power.
A do-not-drink water order has been issued for residents in Long Beach and Mill Neck Estates in Nassau County.
Suffolk County officials reported considerable storm surge flooding on the south shore at midday, and said it was likely to worsen by the evening's high tide.
Residents were ordered to leave Fire Island by 2 p.m. Sunday and the island was scheduled to be de-energized, the Islip town supervisor said. The fire department said 18 inches of water had already flooded the town by 9:30 a.m.
Fourteen people were rescued from deserted Fire Island, and a police vehicle was lost in the rescue effort, said Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone.
Cars were floating along the streets of Long Beach in Nassau County, which was under a mandatory evacuation order. Flooding had consumed several blocks south of the bay, said Long Beach resident Jay Bochner.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo said most of the National Guard troops deployed to the area would be stationed on Long Island.

NEW JERSEY

1.8 million customers were without power.
At least two deaths were linked to the storm. Authorities in Morris County said the two people died after a tree fell on their car Monday evening in Mendham Township.
Mandatory evacuations were in place for the state's barrier islands from Long Beach Island south to Cape May, and at Atlantic City casinos.
By mid-afternoon, all three ways into and out of Ocean City were closed, and Atlantic City was cut off, meaning that those who had not left already were likely stuck for the duration of the storm.
Flooding forced officials to close the Garden State Parkway in both directions south of the Atlantic City Expressway at Exit 38.
To find shelters by county, go here. Officials say shelters are set up in 18 counties to accommodate roughly 12,000 people and, if needed, the state will mobilize five shelters to house another 5,000 people. For a list of county OEM coordinators, go here.
Christie said of the state's 590 school districts statewide, about 350 districts were closed on Monday, and about 250 of those would also be closed on Tuesday. The decisions were being made at the county level, so parents are urged to check locally.
Tolls were suspended on the northbound Garden State Parkway — from Cape May to the Driscoll Bridge — and on the full length of the westbound Atlantic City Expressway to a.ssist with evacuations. The suspension remains in effect indefinitely, officials said.
All New Jersey Transit lines will remain suspended through Tuesday. PATH Train service is suspended indefinitely, the Port Authority said.

CONNECTICUT

Water from Long Island Sound spilled into roadways and towns along the Connecticut shoreline Monday.
CL&P said more than 200,000 were without power.
More than 500 people evacuated to shelters from low-lying areas.
A firef!ghter in Easton died of cardiac arrest while responding to an emergency call after a tree landed on his vehicle.
Hundreds of residents in Greenwich did not heed instructions to evacuate.
A home on Binney Lane in Greenwich caught fire, and firef!ghters could not get there because of flooding and live wires. Four houses were burned or damaged.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said Monday that an 11-foot storm surge is likely to cause serious damage overnight to sewer treatment plants and power substations. He said he is most concerned about the potential for loss of life along the water.
Malloy said 850 National Guardsmen are deployed around the state, and will remain in Connecticut during the storm and its immediate aftermath. With winds above 50 mph forecast to affect much of the state, the governor also ordered a ban on trucks and nonemergency vehicles from most highways beginning at 1 p.m. Monday.
Stamford Mayor Michael Pavia said city officials are concerned the storm surge could push water over a hurricane barrier built by the Army Corps of Engineers to protect the downtown area after hurricanes in 1938, 1955 and 1956. If the surge reaches 12 feet, it could push water over the barrier and flood downtown Stamford with water.
death tolls continue to rise, and its not even morning yet, no power in many areas.



UPDATE
For a complete run down of the events start to present,



As if the flooding wasnt enough...

Fires took out any homes left standing... 50+
3:44 AM EDT: FDNY says over 50 homes have been destroyed by the Breezy Point fire. It has been upgraded to a six-alarm fire. As of last count, there were 198 firef!ghters on the scene.

3:37 AM EDT: The FDNY now says 15 buildings are on fire in the Rockaways. Fire officials say the fire is difficult to f!ght because of heavy winds and the houses are close together. No people have been pulled out of houses and 145 firef!ghters are working the scene.

3:05 AM EDT: Nearly five million without power after Hurricane Sandy. New Jersey has been the hardest hit with more than 1.9 million without power.

1:55 AM EDT: MTA Chairman Joe Lhota said that seven subway tunnels under the East River flooded during the storm. It is not yet known when service will be restored. The Hugh L. Carey Tunnel (aka Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel) is flooded and the Queens Midtown Tunnel also took on water, Lhota said in a statement.

1:45 AM EDT: More than 10 houses are on fire in Breezy Point, Queens and the western end of the Rockaway peninsula, according to the FDNY. The FDNY has more than 100 firef!ghters on the scene but are having trouble reaching the fires because of the flooding. No reports of any injuries at this time.

1:17 AM EDT: ABC News’ Jim DuBreuil sent this photo of a fire in the Breezy Point section of Brooklyn, N.Y
So to put it this way, we just lost 3-4 blocks worth of housing due to a raging fire... Will it ever end?

Rain started again. Tropical depression winds, and hard rain till wed 8pm... YAYYYYYY!

Just what we need, more water in the city.

The hurricane is going to make slight pass at nyc again tomorrow. more flooding expect.

They shut down nuclear powerplants. Cuz the water is literally at the limit the plant was designed for. A melt down would be a disaster.

Floods continue to get worse and worse news says... More water, on top of water, on top of its water, having some water.

Sandy changes position AGAIN!


Just updated 18 mins ago. This storm is mad unpredictable...

This change was drastically different. My biggest fear is she comes back AROUND to the coastal areas NY/NJ.

Yo this storm is so fuking huge its ridiculous. In history books this storm will be put down. 1000mi+ wide. Like how is that possible!?

Katrina was 500mi wide. This is crazy, unreal. 2012 is real!?

update though...
Yep raining hard as fuk, still getting some heavy gusts. Flooding slowly rising, not as fast before.

Im not trusting the forecasts, this storm has some sharp S turns... They havent been good with the estimates for the past couple hours. They claim rain will stop tomorrow, but im seeing humidity above 70% all the way till Friday! A hour or two break in rain isnt stopping completely... They are not making it clear to residents.

A week with no power is estimated...
More than six million customers lost power Monday as Hurricane Sandy felled trees, downed power lines and flooded substations. The storm led to outages in at least 17 states, including more than a million customers in Pennsylvania and New Jersey and about 660,000 in New York City. Roughly a quarter million customers lost power in Manhattan alone after a fiery explosion at a substation on East 14th Street, leaving nearly the entire island eerily dark south of 34th Street. Con Edison officials called the power failures “the largest storm related outage in our history.” Officials said they expected to be able to restore electricity to much of Manhattan before the night was over but that it could be a week before all service was restored.

They still have to see the situation, could take a while too much water. A week wit no power in the city though... Thats craaazy

Run ways are underwater, so there is no answer for when people trapped here can leave. It make take a week or two before we see planes take off again. Water levels gotta drop. No idea how long it will take. Its snowing in some places so tide might stay high.

Sandy's Destruction: What $20B of Damage Looks Like

At least 50 homes in Queens burned after Hurricane Sandy sent floodwaters gushing into New York’s five boroughs. The colossal storm submerged cars, tunnels and the subway system, and darkened vast swaths of the nation’s most populous city.

Sandy, which weakened as it passed over the coast, shaped up to be among the worst storms in New York history, rivaling the blizzards of 1888 and 1947. Two deaths were reported in Queens and more than 684,000 were without power in the region, according to Consolidated Edison Inc. (ED)

In the borough’s Breezy Point neighborhood, at the end of a peninsula that juts into the bay, about 198 firef!ghters are working today to contain a blaze that has destroyed at least 50 homes and injured two people, according to a department spokesman. Video from the scene showed a firestorm racing from house to house, and emergency workers wading through floodwaters to reach them.

The breadth and depth of devastation is “almost unimaginable,” Joseph Lhota, chairman of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, said in a televised interview today.

After the storm’s tide crested about 8 p.m., the East River topped its seawall in the Financial District and flowed up Wall Street in a torrent that turned avenues into canals and intersections into lakes. Flooding took over Brooklyn’s Red Hook neighborhood, submerging cars to the roof, while the Gowanus Canal overflowed and the sea topped Coney Island’s boardwalk.
Dark City

Con Ed cut electricity to some areas to save its equipment and a transformer exploded at a plant on 14th Street, blacking out others. New York University evacuated its Langone Medical Center when it went dark and backup systems failed.

“This will be the largest storm-related outage in our history,” said John Miksad, Consolidated Edison’s senior vice president for electric operations. The previous record was during Hurricane Irene last year, with about 200,000 New York City outages, he said.

Seven of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s subway tunnels under the East River flooded, along with the Queens Midtown and Hugh L. Carey car tunnels. The latter “is flooded from end to end,” according to a statement from Lhota.
Water and Fire

New York’s 108-year-old subway system “has never faced a disaster as devastating as what we experienced last night,” he said in the statement.

Charles Seaton, spokesman for the largest U.S. transit agency, said there’s no way to tell when the system will run again. In his statement, Lhota said the MTA is committed to restoring service as quickly as possible.

Water may wreck MTA electrical and communication systems, said Charles Watson, director of research and development at Silver Spring, Maryland-based Kinetic Analysis Corp.

“Once a piece of electrical equipment is exposed to saltwater, it’s essentially ruined,” he said.

As of 9:15 p.m. yesterday there were two fatalities in Queens. A man died when a tree fell on his house, and a woman was electrocuted when she stepped in a puddle that obscured a live wire, said Detective Kellyann Ort, a spokeswoman for the New York Police Department.

Earlier, winds caused the partial collapse of a crane attached to a luxury tower on West 57th Street in Manhattan, and sheared off the side of a building in Chelsea, leaving apartments exposed to the elements, beds and pictures still arranged just so.
Not looking good, 8am now at 1 we will have 20 hrs of straight rain and 30mph winds. On top that NYC may not see power for week/weeks. They literally have to clear alllll the water before they can start repairing, and salt water basically got everywhere, they have to change all that equipment.

Damn.

New jersey is officially wiped out, the last bit of areas that were left GONE.

3 towns were flooded when the levee broke.
Broken levee in Sandy's wake floods New Jersey towns

NEW YORK (Reuters): A levee broke in northern New Jersey on Tuesday, flooding the towns of Moonachie, Little Ferry and Carlstadt with 1.2m to 1.5m) of water in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, officials said.

"We are in rescue mode," said Jeanne Baratta, chief of the Bergen County Executive.

There were no reports of fatalities as of yet, she said.

Baratta said the three towns had been "devastated" by the flood of water. The break comes after Sandy, which dropped below hurricane status just before it hit the US east coast on Monday, flooded parts of New Jersey and New York City.

Meanwhile, a huge fire that erupted as Sandy ripped through New York City with near-hurricane force winds destroyed dozens of homes in one of the city's most remote neighbourhoods.

The neighbourhood Breezy Point, in the borough of Queens, had been extensively flooded by Sandy's record storm surge, and fire-f!ghters were hampered in their efforts to bring the blaze under control, a spokesman for the New York Fire Department said.

No casualties were immediately reported and the cause of the fire was under investigation.

A tweet from the FDNY's official Twitter feed said 50 or more homes were destroyed in the fire. The fire still was not under control by 5am (5pm Malaysian time)), the department said.

Local television showed fire-f!ghters wading through waist-deep water to get to the massive fire. Some used inflatable boats to reach it.

Breezy Point is a private beach community in the Rockaway area, a narrow spit of land barely above sea level that thrusts into the Atlantic Ocean southwest of John F. Kennedy International Airport.

It was one of a number of New York City neighbourhoods that had been under a mandatory evacuation order as Sandy, one of the biggest storms ever to hit the United States, approached from the southeast.
ahh man still got 20+ hrs of rain fall... Can it get any worse? Who knows.

Wish all those affected, and their loved ones the best.
