Well, for those of you in the projected storm path want to double down, lay down your bets. I will place my bets on Mother Nature. not you cynics.

The crap you are publishing is going to get somebody hurt or killed. You have deployed no personnel, or weather equipment...just your baseless opinions. ****

I dunno.
I was just out for a walk in my neighborhood.So far,not even a tree limb down .Don't think the winds have topped more than 40 mph here.There was more damage around the neighborhood in last winter's blizzard and in many recent storms.Lights are on,some stores open and many people driving around.

Can't believe they are still calling this thing a hurricane.Hurricanes are supposed to have sustained winds of over 74 mph.I haven't seen a report of even a gust over 60 mph with this thing since yesterday.

I concur with you, I checked my backyard a few minutes ago and just a few leaves and some small branches.
I have seen a lot more on the ground after a quick summer thunderstorm.

There are 20,000+ Queens residents without power, from looking at the
Con Ed outage map it's minor outages scattered throughout.

Good Bye Irene, we hardly noticed your presence.

Just saw on TV that the "eye" of the storm is passing over queens right now.Highest official wind gusts so far in NYC have been 56 mph.The morning high tide is co inciding with the eye passage but there has been no flooding in lower Manhattan at all.

I agree. i never heard any strong winds all night and am still waiting. the news says the storm is 100 miles south of NY City and moving at the rate of 18 mph toward us then they say it will be over in 2 hours. this was at 8AM

here in central Riverdale all i see is heavy rain

Default i'm sorry i stand corrected

at 8Am they said the storm was 100 miles south of the city and was moving at us at the rate of 18 miles per hour

they said winds of over 65 mph are yet to come but then they say it will be over soon...

That's weird.On channel 4 they just said the eye was right over NYC(Queens) right now.Sounds like they don't even know where the eye is.Maybe because there isn't an eye any more ?

Anyone know when the subways will start running again?
