Hurricane Sandy was downgraded to something called a post-tropical cyclone, which we think probably means "like a hurricane, except not."
Either way, Sandy was a menace.
Her post-tropical cycloneness slammed into the North Atlantic, leaving water and wind devastation all over parts of New York and New Jersey. Millions are without power, and at least 16 have died in New Jersey because of the storm.
New York was rocked by Sandy, leaving much of it in darkness, and reports of fires destroying homes, hospitals losing generator power, and seawater surging over streets have been rampant. Seawater even spilled into the World Trade Center Ground Zero pit.
We in SoFla know a thing or two about hurricanes and hurricane survival, post-tropical cyclone or not. Here now is a quick dos and don'ts list on how to handle things, from some who have been there.

We feel your pain, New York/New Jersey.
