Ocean Coming Ashore... Sandy Causing Flooding On Long Island
Description:With potentially historic Hurricane Sandy barreling toward the tri-state area, the MTA shut down the region's mass-transportation system and city officials have enacted mandatory evacuations for the more than a quarter-of-a-million residents of low-lying areas.
The transit shutdown process began at 7 p.m. Sunday and concluded by the early morning. PATH service ended at midnight. Forecasters are calling for 30- to 60 mile-per-hour winds, with gusts up to 75 miles per hour.(2:30)
