Thanks a lot guys! Things are getting a little worse now. I might go out tomorrow morning for photos of the aftermath.

Please post some pics here tomorrow. This is the lead News story on this side of the Atlantic too. Thx.

Amazing shots its hard to believe there's no one around! How are you allowed to roam, I figured there'd be police at least. Still it's crazy to think its that empty wow!

Great shots!  I'm flying into NYC to visit my brother in Manhattan (Battery Park) next weekend and kind of wish the city would be that deserted when I'll be there for these kinds of shots!  But then again, my flight likely wouldn't be on time.  ;-)

Did any local authorities give you a hard time?

I have found something like this - it must have been a while after your shot...

Thanks. I was hoping someone would post some storm pics here. I'm not going out -- unless the eye passes directly over here -- and it might. I'll know in the next 90 minutes!

How did things go? :o Kinda concerned that this was your last post...

I got a ton of photos of the aftermath. I just got home. I left the house around 6am with a friend and we explored the city for 9 hours on foot. I have to edit down the photos to a manageable number, and I'll be posting the best ones later tonight! Today was such an adventure! I'm exhausted, hungry, and sore, but it was well worth it getting the shots that I did.

Send them to Getty Images and buy a new house in three weeks :) If you succeed, send me 70-200 2.8 II for giving you an idea :)

Sorry, didn't mean to cause a fright!

Mostly it was pretty quiet -- virtually no wind, very little rain. Wind picked up once it passed. Most interesting part was monitoring barometric pressure -- lowest ever recorded in this area, by a wide margin! I took my weather kit outside and got a 28.14 reading. Amazing graph:

Walter: Were you listening to The Dude's story? Donny: I was bowling. Walter: So you have no frame of reference here, Donny. You're like a child who wanders into the middle of a movie and wants to know...

Good to know you're ok.
You have those stats presented on your phone offline using phone sensors or external device connected via BT/WiFi or was it Internet online service?

Spectacular damages, great photos.
Hopefully none of Canon's offices, factories nor design facilities got flooded...

Some "barely used, low mileage" cars will soon come for sale to Eastern Europe :)
