    It is all a viewer grab. Last night one of them answered this question. He said I am here so you can see why you don't want to be.

    He said he was standing in the same spot so you could get an idea of how much the water was rising/receding.

    I was an intern at KCRG during the floods of 2008 and this was a common thing to do. The best way I saw it done though was one of our reporters found a construction cone and just left it in place and showed the progress on that.

    It is going to be awhile before transportation get's moving again in the NYC area. At least Laguardia was flooded I have to assume JFK and Newark were at least partially flooded as well.
