    Thanks for asking! I'm on the East coast, and we lost power Mon and Tue, but came back on line. The storm was windy and rainy in Boston, but I understand Manhattan got hit much, much worse.

    Thanks for asking friend, I live near the beach, but a few blocks from the house the strong storm and tide pushed the boats to the road, was very frightening, the neighborhood was destroyed ,many houses, boats in the train station unfortunately some people died, who refused to evacuate.

    I leave some pictures I took yesterday afternoon. Used the nex7 and 16mm and 18-55mm

    thanks guys, it's very bad the situation here, we had several blackouts but not too bad, like I said that a few blocks from my house is a mess, houses destroyed, people derestimate the nature,they not taken seriously the hurricane, unfortunately, was like the movie'' a day after tomorrow'' . : (

    the pictures stole my breath away - but it is in a sad way. I hope the repairs will progress well, and that help for those who need it will be available. Glad you made it out alright!

    Freddy, very good news to hear you and your home are ok. I knew you would manage some quality shots of the aftermath. New Yorkers will need their state of mind to help get through this. Best of luck, Jamie Z
