- NY Times: Power Failures and Furious Flooding Overwhelm Lower Manhattan and Red Hook
- CNN: NYU Langone medical center evacuation – This is an amazing story when you think about all of the logistics that went into moving those patients so quickly. We plan and plan and plan for disasters like these, and test parts of the disaster plan independently, like turning on the backup generators or simulating walking down the stairs hand bagging our NICU babies (our NICU is on the 6th floor) or declaring areas of the hospital as “casualties”, but to actually have to do it? Congrats to NYU Langone for what sounds like an incredible job.
