OMG Superstorm Sandy brought down MUA!

Since last Friday all we hear about is Hurricane Sandy. Now it's here!

Nasa imagery of Sandy bearing down 
on the US East Coast on Monday

CNN, 10:40 p.m.

  • Historic, life-threatening coastal flooding now occurring along NY Harbor and Long Island Sound.
  • Manhattan is in the dark!
  • Parts of Lower Manhattan under water.
  • Sandy ravages New York City.
  • Flooding occurring inside of subway stations in lower Manhattan.
  • Seawater rushing into N.Y. Battery Tunnel.
  • New York's JFK International Airport is closed due to flooding.
  • The Queens Midtown Tunnel is closed.
  • All MTA bridges and tunnels are closed to traffic.
  • Streets turned into raging rivers in Atlantic City, N.J
  • Mayor: Part of Atlantic City Boardwalk "wiped out".
  • Atlantic City under curfew until 6 a.m. Tuesday.
  • N.J. Governor: Evacuations no longer possible.
  • Maryland Governor: 300,000+ without power.

This is what I was able to read on the TV screen in just the last 10 minutes or so.

Not surprisingly MakeupAlley is down! It was probably due to the explosion of a huge transformer in NYC. I can't even get on the CNN website at the moment.

There are many people who are probably considering rehab at this moment since the site has been down for close to an hour and a half and I can only imagine the reactions of members when it's back up and running.

Totally unimportant! The main thing is, hopefully people are safe and stay safe.

In Montreal we can feel the winds but they are nothing like what our US neighbors are getting.

No MUA, what to do? Read, write a blog, snuggle up with your darlings, humans and non-humans. In other words, get a life! Not being glued to the computer can be quite liberating.

I do sincerely hope everyone is safe! *Hugs* to all who are living it.


  1. I've hit the MUA button at least 3 times and get so confused when it just keeps spinning :0 ... I thought it was just my computer at first but then I remembered the hurricane!

  2. I'm quite sure you where not the only one to be wondering. At first I didn't make the connection but seeing the explosion of the transformer on CNN that's when I figured everything went down. Here so far there are only some winds & light rain. I can't imagine how it must be like in the most hit areas. :(

  3. Hi.. it's YogaCrunch from MUA. I thought I would leave message here because I know you are wondering what is going on.
    I have power n water, luckily I am more uptown, and most of damage was in downtown area. No subway and mass transit here, so most of people stays home yesterday and today.. and also tomorrow. It will take a while for all the damages to be resolved.
    Glad to hear Canada didn't get affected by storm much. TTYL

    1. I'm so glad to know you're OK! Thank you so much for the update. I've been seeing images on CNN that made my heart hurt. So many people affected by this it's just horrible. Again, happy to know you're fine.
