I finally heard that my son is okay. His apartment was surrounded by 5 feet of water. He couldn't get cell service any where in his neighborhood and assumed it was the case for all of Manhattan. His brother and sister left work and went down to his apartment and found him there, fine, but clueless. I'll lecture him later. Right now I'm just so relieved he's okay.
We still don't have power either in CT or Manhattan. I keep charging my phone and ipad in the car. So many roads are closed, we're just staying put for now.
