HOLY SHIT. Sandy is turning into a big event for Obama. I won't say Katrina like as 1,300 people died, but historic and costly. The stock exchange has 3 feet of water Subways flooded 4 alarm fires Likely as costly as a large part of new york is flooded. The cost to the economy could be huge. This isn't MISS, AL or New orleans we're talking about. This isn't deadly like Katrina, but it will be costly.
