Vicious ocean storms are nothing new. Look into the Grote Mandrenke which reshaped the coastline of Western Europe and killed tens of thousands. If that exact storm replayed now, it would be taken as evidence of "climate change," but what it would really evidence is a chaotic, nonlinear system that kicks out an unbelievably strong storm from time to time. The U.S. is currently experiencing the longest stretch of days between major landfalling hurricanes. The last one to strike U.S. shores was Wilma, in 2005.

Photo you've captioned "9:55am: flooding at the entrance to the Hugh L. Carey (formerly Brooklyn Battery) Tunnel, via @NYGovCuomo" is actually the entrance to the Battery Park Underpass, but just as badly flooded. Here's the Carey tunnel entrance getting flooded: http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=50134146n&tag=strip
