    I hear you, I just have major anxiety over this gas situation more than anything else. It's only a matter of time before someone on these gas lines reaches their breaking point and just snaps. Things can get ugly.

    It's a shame that scumbags in certain areas have already resorted to looting. This is some ****ed up ****.

    Just got back to work today. Good to be back (sort of).

    We lost power during the storm, and it still hasn't come back.

    I went to the office yesterday, but it was rather pointless as I'm lucky enough to work from home. Now Im actually mad at myself for wasting the gas to drive there and back.

    I've now setup shop with the family at my sisters house in Vernon NJ.
    Surprised they have power considering the sheer number of trees in this neck of the woods (so to speak).

    Which big named singer will create the first song and melodramatic video of hurricane victims high-fiving and helping each other clean up wreckage? Springsteen, Mellencamp?

    It's funny how things turned out. My brother lives more towards the middle of LI, I'm south of Sunrise Hwy. My parents are right on the water.

    I have no power, my brother has no power. My parents are up and running no problem, and didn't get a drop of water in their basement.

    My boss wasn't so lucky. She lives in Massapequa. Her house got completely flooded.

    These guys are still big-named? And when were they ever "singers?"

    Baldwin Harbor. Most of my neighbors had 8 ft of water in their basements.

    Maybe God took pity on a former Jets fan? We'll never know....

    thx Fish. at least everyone is safe. Us and the neighbors did the survivalist thing scouting for ice, using the BBQ grills, etc. yesterday a sweage line broke 2 blocks away in what is now known as Sh itsville (Brownsville?).

    Night of the storm: about 1/2 mile away, a transformer broke loose swung down hit a house, and it blew up. luckily no one home. we saw the bluish glow from our house. Lots of people worse off.

    One guys house had his dock on his lawn. a freaking dock! saw a sailboat standing up in the mud! holy ****.

    Not sure if this has been posted, but hopefully the fact that Sandy is not being treated as a hurricane will be helpful to those who really need their insurance coverage to kick in as much as possible - I know JW brought this up earlier in the thread.

    http://www.cnbc.com/id/49641797

    The fact that Hurricane Sandy was downgraded to a “Post-Tropical Cyclone” before it made landfall on the East Coast will save homeowners potentially thousands of dollars in home insurance deductibles.

    Homes in Seaside Heights, N.J.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    New Jersey’s Department of Banking and Insurance Acting Commissioner Ken Kobylowski communicated that to the insurance industry Tuesday night and New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the same Thursday morning.

    “Homeowners should not have to pay hurricane deductibles for damage caused by the storm and insurers should understand the Department of Financial Services will be monitoring how claims are handled,” Governor Cuomo said in a release. (Read More: For Builders, the Storm is Good for Business.)


    How is a hurricane deductible different from your basic homeowner policy deductible? It is based on a percentage of your property’s insured value, and it can be up to 5 percent. So let’s say your home is insured for $300,000. That’s a $15,000 deductible, which is likely far higher than your regular deductible. The average homeowner deductible is between $500 and $1000.

    “We have informed the insurance industry that hurricane deductibles are not triggered because Sandy did not have sustained hurricane-force winds when it made land in New York,” noted NY’s Superintendent of Financial Services Benjamin Lawsky in the release. “We will be working with insurers to help them respond as quickly as possible to homeowners who need to file claims. And we will be sending our mobile command center to hard hit areas to help consumers with insurance questions and problems.”

    (Read More: Trains Roll, but Northeast Struggles Back From Sandy.)

    There is very specific language in homeowner insurance policies in terms of hurricane deductibles. Usually the storm has to reach specific wind speeds to trigger the deductible. A state governor couldn’t necessarily override that private contract.

    “The way the insurers look at it is that this is a private contract between the insurer and the policy holder, and the policy as written is going to be enforced,” noted Michael Barry of the Insurance Information Institute. “In this case Sandy does not appear to have reached the threshold to activate the hurricane deductible.”

    The insurance companies probably didn’t need Governor Cuomo’s directive as such, since they were already doing their own assessments immediately following the storm. (Read More: Sandy's Economic Cost: Up to $50 Billion and Counting.)

    “We have done a review of the best available National Weather Service data and compared that to our language, and we have determined that the hurricane deductible will not apply in those states,” said State Farm spokesman Phil Supple.

    As for how much the difference in the deductibles will cost the nation’s insurance companies, that is impossible to calculate at this point, as the companies are still waiting to get in to the hardest hit areas and tally the damage. It is also, as Supple added, “moot” to do any figuring, as they higher deductible clearly doesn’t apply.

    I read that there will be No Deductibles for everyone b.c there was a order signed by the government.
