This time it was no hype. Sandy rampaged through New York, New Jersey and the rest of the Northeast. It’s still active and we are updating live.
The damage in the city has been enormous, including massive flooding everywhere, collapsed buildings, generator malfunctions in hospitals, multiple fires, city-wide blackouts and explosions in electric plants. Some of the subway system may be offline for a month. And yes, mortal victims too.
According to NOAA, Sandy is 1,000 mile wide and still creating life-threatening conditions.
Gizmodo’s servers, located in a data center in Lower Manhattan, were knocked out too, but this article contains all the updates since the moment of the city shutdown.
