eh. They made it out to be a bigger deal - and it isn't as bad as they thought.

No it's pretty much exactly what they were calling for, minus the snow in some places. I've been following it pretty closely from the beginning since I travel out here for work and have family here.

They have shown exactly:
1 building with damage.
1 apt with the wall that fell off
A few trees (some stations have even shown the same few trees)
Flooding of coastal homes (duh)
A bent crane that seems to be the worst damage and most devastating for the news people "cause I know people that live in the area"
Flooding
Snow, which is fine, it is about that time of year.

The coolest and probably worst part of it, is the salt water entering the subway system. That is pretty damn damaging. Everything will corrode very quickly and I assume it will take a major overhaul and undertaking to fix it. The videos of the subway flooding were pretty impressive.

I hope the best for everyone, I really do. I am not there obviously, but come on....if anyone has links or more info on the saltwater damage, link please. That is pretty interesting....
