Yeah..saw his post on FB earlier. Really a damn shame, its a sweet ride.

To his credit, he's taking it in stride. Said something like: The car's insured, no one got hurt & the tree didn't hit the house 10 feet away.

9 p.m.: Pearl River man killed when tree falls onto his house; wife, 3 teenagers injured

A 56-year-old Pearl River man was killed and his family injured when a tree fell through the roof of their Robin Street home this evening, authorities said.

The death is the first reported Sandy-related fatality in the Lower Hudson Valley.

The man, his wife and their three teenage children were sitting together in the family room on the second floor when the tree fell around 6 p.m., said Ray Florida, executive director of Rockland Paramedics Services.
“They were all together and just without warning, the tree came right through the roof,” he said. “They didn’t even have a chance to get out of the way.”

Florida said the mother is in critical condition with severe head wounds, a teenage daughter is in serious condition and two other teens suffered lesser injuries. All are being treated at the Emergency Department at Nyack Hospital.

Their identities weren’t immediately available.

The Pearl River Fire Department extricated the mother from the house, Florida said.

“They were doing all the right things,” Florida said. “They were home, they were in the house, they were following all the proper directions. It’s just very tragic. It’s just one of those things that happens in a situation like this.”

My sister stayed home...in Rockway Beach...with her husband. Their building (thank goodness she is on the 6th floor) has now been surrounded by the ocean, which rushed up and engulfed every car and house in the neighborhood. She just sent me a text saying 'basically, it's f***ing Armageddon' and that they hide in the bathroom when the winds REALLY howl. This is just awful... Awful. i have at least 50 texts from friends and family saying that they are terrified, their car washed away or the first floor of their house has 4 feet of water....

Much love and light to all who are in danger. May safety come to them soon :heart:

I think they did. Christie, too. The only misstep I think Bloomberg made was ordering all city employees to get to work, including nonessentials. I realize there's a certain portion of city employees that have to get in on days like this, but I don't know about forcing nonessential personnel to take the risk. But overall, I think this was handled well. Hoping they manage the aftermath as well. This is going to be one hell of a cleanup. I'm scared of what I'll see outside once the sun comes up.

Lower Manhattan is pretty much underwater. Its a total mess down there and high tide is just starting to hit now. My understanding is that most (if not all) of the Atlantic City boardwalk is gone.

Hoping Taters & Andrew come home to a home.

Loads of fires burning in my home town..... Apparently power lines fell and set the church rectory, local restaurant and a load of homes on fire. The restaurant that burned is across the street from where flight 587 crashed in Nov 2001. Even worse, the owners of the restaurant lost a brother, a son and partner in the WTC on 9/11. The sadness never ends for these folks... :(

Just waking up here in asbury park. Lost power around 830 last night, still have gas and hot water...we made it thru virtually unscathed despite close proximity to the ocean and some fierce winds. Even the red maple in our backyard made it thru without any busted limbs. Trash can were blown around, and some other debris...but im looking at some blue sky right now. Ill send pics of asbury boardwalk in a few minutes, when we take a walk out there...

Vibes for everyone affected by the storm. <3

I really lucked out. There was some pretty serious wind later in the day yesterday, but other than a couple of flickers, the power stayed on the whole time*. Phone/tronz went out and are still out, but that ain't no big deal.

* I guess after the storm last October Gov. Dannel really leaned on the utilities to clean up tress/branches around the power lines.
