I didn't lose power
Landline was down for a few hours on Sunday
Didn't bother to tape my windows
High tide came Sunday morning and submerged my street and others surrounding it in 6"-8" deep water
Majority of the water was gone in 1.5 hrs
No damage in my complex except broken tree branches
Other parts of the Rockaways had huge flooding, National Guard had to come get them
Some older trees fell on some houses in Bayswater
The water moved a huge garbage dumpster across the street
Some cars got water damage
Down power lines
Beach got eroded we lost some sand
Stay tuned for pics

Not bad considering the media was referring to it as a "Once in 100yrs storm"

Default Hurricane Irene

Hi, SeventhFloor:

I, too, am a Rockaway resident. When they declared evacuation mandatory, we decided to stay with relatives. We actually had worse storm damage in the area we evacuated to than if we had stayed in Rockaway. We just came back to The Rock today and found all power on and no flooding in our complex.
I'm curious as to which part/s of Rockaway had serious flooding.

Nice pics... shows the contrasts even within the area... My neighborhood was the same way... you had blocks that were untouched and others that had trees down, wires down and flooding... it was pretty crazy considering my block barely got hit...

btw, sorry to change the subject but does anyone know whether Katia's projected path or the other one that became a tropical storm recently will hit us... I heard that we will simply get the residual effect from the tropical storm meaning more rainfall but all i hear about Katia is that it is much more powerful than Irene was and it's path continues to move... One day the projected path landed katia right along the eastern border, another day it simply remains in the ocean...

Wonderful pictures Seventh Floor! Thank you so much for posting them. I was wondering how the flood zone of the streets in the high 50s were going to be. That area is always a mess.
