While the eye of Hurricane Tropical Storm Irene is moving beyond metro New York, all eyes are on areas of the city that are flooded (looks like the Rockaways, Battery Park City and parts of Brooklyn) power outages - 370k in New York State. We don't want to sound overly optimistic, but we can see some patches of blue sky - can you?

I really appreciate the special coverage and I know that you folks love to get information from the listening public, but you began Brian Lehrer's special coverage this morning right in the middle of an NPR interview with Ed Mangano, Nassau County Exec. As a Nassau resident, I would have appreciated hearing the whole interview with Mangano, since I would imagine that he knows more about what's happening in Nassau (Long Island being one of the areas that Brian said experienced some of the worst of the storm) than does any one of the individual callers. Please monitor what you're breaking in on NPR reporting that may be relevant. Thanks much.
