Simon Harsent - Irene
"On August 28th 2011 Hurricane Irene made landfall over New York’s Coney Island with winds at 65 mph. It hit New York City at 9 a.m. ET bringing with it a storm surge that sent 3½ feet of water into New York Harbor. Although downgraded to a tropical storm, it still flooded low-lying areas and left millions of homes without power all along the Eastern Seaboard."
