The Battery Park underpass in lower Manhattan was almost completely submerged by Sandy overnight. The underpass connects the FDR Drive to the West Side Highway.
The floodwater swallowed a New York City Department of Transportation truck.
One person on the scene is reporting a strong odor of “oil and gasoline.”
