Stay safe, East Coast. Please do all report in as often as possible, please.

The NYT is posting a new photo every minute.

The most extraordinary description of this storm – from a weatherman who claims not to be prone to hyperbole – is here.

There’s this messed up news about the possibility of the Gowanus Canal flooding into Brooklyn.

You can even watch various live feeds in & around NYC.

And NCTE has put out a great guide (pdf) for trans people in the midst of these kinds of storms – basic information on emergency shelters, contact numbers, and lists of supplies that wouldn’t be on most guides for hurricane preparedness.

Love to all my friends & family on the East Coast. I hope this doesn’t suck half so much as it sounds like it’s going to.
