NWS now OFFICIALLY forecasting largest water level ever recorded at the Battery (11.7) for tmoorrow night, breaking Hurr Donna 1960 10.1 ft
Irene was 4.5ft -5.5 ft.
If the surge is anywhere near that NWS forecast, expect the subways to take some very serious flooding.
Worrisome, especially because Bloomberg seems to be ho-humming this storm response so far.
I wonder if Bloomberg realizes the subways could be down for a long time if they take significant flooding from salt water?
