I'm from Staten Island, and my house is raised because of it's proximity to the water. During the the water started coming up the block, and we decided to get out. We had to do some deep water crossing , and even drove around other stuck vehicles. The house is mostly ok, but sustained a couple thousand in damage. The Jeep is fine, but needs the hinges oiled badly. The power is finally back, and mostly everyone is helping each other which is nice to see.
