At 7 p.m. EDT Oct 27, the tide gauge at The Battery in New York City reached 11.25 feet, surpassing the previous all-time record of 11.2 feet in 1821. With the Water continued to rise rapidly....

Water is being pushed north into New York Harbor from Lower Bay, and westward from Long Island Sound via the East River. 

Western parts of Long Island Sound were already reporting storm surge of more than 12 feet above normal tide levels by early Monday evening. As low astronomical tide swings back toward high tide late this evening, dangerous storm surge flooding could result.

National Hurricane Center forecasting a life-threatening storm surge Monday through Tuesday morning, particularly during the Monday evening high tide.

We hope you and your loved ones made it through the storm unharmed.
