Superstorm Sandy

Video: PATH station flooding

MYFOXNY.COM -

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has released dramatic security camera videos showing the massive flooding that occurred at PATH train stations when Superstorm Sandy caused record-breaking storm surge in the Tristate area on October 29, 2012.

One video shows what it looked like by the elevators inside the Exchange Place station in Jersey City. Water swamped tickets machines and turnstiles.

Video from outside Exchange Place shows high flood waters with fast-moving current caused by driving wind.

Another video shows water cascading into the Hoboken station through an elevator door. Then another angle shows water well on its way to submerging the tracks.

PATH service remains suspended at the Hoboken, Exchange Place and the World Trade Center stations as recovery efforts continue. Port Authority officials say it will be several weeks before resumption of service on the Newark-World Trade Center line and the lines to and from Hoboken station because of the significant damage from the flooding in the PATH tunnels and multiple stations.

    The idea is grand: to take the 7 train and connect Queens to Manhattan to New Jersey. But as with all these massive projects, the chorus gets quiet when asked who will to pay for it. While business interests announced plans of an economic impact study, no one has even a ballpark number for a price tag.

    HELMET VIDEO: Cyclist wipes out on taxi door

    Friday, September 12 2014 4:38 PM EDT2014-09-12 20:38:35 GMT
    With a camera mounted to his helmet, a cyclist headed northbound on 4th Avenue in Manhattan. As he neared East 14th Street, the taxi door swung open and the cyclist slammed into the door and went down. But it's the aftermath where things got weird in an "Only in New York" kind of way as the blame game started. The cab driver was upset because he said his door was damaged.
