I am so glad you are ok NYCindie! I was worried about you when I saw how hard New York and New Jersey were getting hit.
That sounds a lot like how New York was after 9/11. But I've never heard of lower Manhattan being evacuated or the dreadful fire in Queens.
Baltimore got hit relatively lightly. I lost power briefly but was then fine the rest of the time. My neighbor's lost their front gutters. That's it on my street.
