Superstorm Sandy has left a good chunk of New York City and its surrounding areas powerless, in every sense of that word.

At least 12 people are dead. A Con Ed power station exploded. Hospitals were evacuated when backup generators failed. A goddamn crane is dangling precariously from the top of a 75-story apartment tower. The sea level rose above 13 feet, water gushing into the subway and the PATH train and the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel. A fire inexplicably tore through Queens, destroying at least 80 homes. Sandy did not disappoint.

On the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the flooding looked like something out of a Michael Bay or Jerry Bruckheimer picture. On 8th Street and Avenue C, just about 6 blocks and one avenue away from the exploding Con Ed power station, Sean Blackwell caught the exact moment the lights went out.

This … is … crazy.
