Last night 45 National Guardsmen arrived in Hoboken, New Jersey equipped with 18 vehicles they're using to traverse the flooded streets, rescuing hundreds of people after the effects of Sandy left residents stranded. Anderson Cooper will broadcast AC360° from there at 8 and 10 p.m. ET.
We'll also get updates on the urgent situations still unfolding after the storm: Evacuating hundreds of patients from Bellevue Hospital in New York City, the extent of the damage to New York’s subway system and other crucial rail lines in the Northeast. Plus, the latest on the threat of the crane hanging 90 stories above midtown Manhattan. And we’ll take you to Belmar, New Jersey, another hard hit beach town in the state and get the latest developments on the devastation a little farther south in Seaside Heights, New Jersey - one of the places Gov. Chris Christie took President Obama today via helicopter to get a look at what Sandy did to the state. And we'll remember the victims who didn't survive the storm; at least 56 died in the U.S. and 124 worldwide.
Join us tonight for the latest.
If Governor Cuomo is seriously worried about global warming raising sea levels and intensifying storms, then shouldn't he be working on major levy systems for places like New York City? What good does complaining about global warming do in the midst of a crisis? The primary mission seems like it should be cleaning up this mess, then preparing New York for what's to come.
The are severalnuclear power plants along the destructive path of Hurricane Sandy. How are their backup systems working?
While reports seem to be about recovery in NJ/NY, I have relatives in central WV, Webster County, in the cold and snow with no power. They will be without power for some time...they are not in recovery stage, Sandy is still with them.. Please think about them, and let us know how they are!
Why don't they bring a large Chinook helicopter in to remove that crane ? it can lift a Abrahams tank so that little crane should not be a problem. Hook it up , cut it off and problem is solved. They can recover the costs through their insurance !
Hi Anderson, thanks for covering Hoboken. I am unable to contact my fiancé, who has been stranded there since Sunday. I'm in California and the coverage on CNN is the only way that I can see if he may be okay. I am not sure if he has food or water. His phone has gone dead. The last text messages I received from him were of the streets below his apartment flooding and the power going out. Your coverage has been great all throughout the disaster. Thanks again.
I have had an issue with CNN and TWC since days before the storm hit. They have been showing a commercial that is so disrespectful and I wish somebody would make them stop. It is a Generac commercial. It starts off with a man saying " Did your little storm knock the power out? Well excuse me for not noticing." When so many people have just been through this storm and don't have power let alone much else I think this is very uncaring of a network to be showing no matter how much money it is making them. Somebody like Anderson should stand up to the network and tell them to stop running it and make an apology to those that they have upset.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
