NYC Braces for Storm

Manhattan braced for direct hit from Hurricane Irene I was in NYC for six weeks during the summer of 1999. It didn't rain at all, the entire city smelled like a sewer and it was oppressively hot. The day before I was to leave it finally rained. Rained so hard that the A and C line trains were shut down because the tracks were flooded. That's the main north south subway in Manhattan. That was a few inches of rain at high tide. What happens when they get twenty inches at high tide combined with a storm surge?

Still here in Delaware. My house is in a location that doesn't flood so our main concerns are wind and power outages. Took down the canopy over our deck and put away anything that might become an airborne projectile and that's about all we can do.
