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.”

    We were just there in July and I grew up in NJ, visiting NYC all of my life. How sad!
