And Atlantic City is underwater!!!

What the hell?? Hurricane Sandy is whipping her wrath on the mid-Atlantic this evening and she’s proving to be one angry beyotch!!

According to the New York Post:

A four-story apartment building in Chelsea suffered a partial collapse this evening, authorities said.

The building, on Eighth Avenue near West 15th Street, has the front façade completely exposed following the collapse around 6:25 p.m.

One firefighter suffered minor injuries, the FDNY said.

A tourist from Seattle who was staying in the building said she first noticed some pieces falling from the ceiling.

“It’s an old building, it creaks and things, so initially we didn’t think anything was going on,” said Natasha Stelmaszek.

She then went outside to look at the building, which has a business on the first floor, and noticed a crack.

“I decided to go upstairs to the fourth floor and then down to the second to let everyone known,” Stelmaszek, 56, said.

“And as a group, we just figured it was time to get out.”

Isabelle Boussard, who is visiting from France with her family, said after Stelmaszek alerted them to the imminent collapse, “we quickly went in and packed our luggage and we came across the street.

“Ten minutes later, we watched it fall. It was crazy. It’s a very bad trip.”

City Council Speaker Christine Quinn was on-hand to survey the wreckage.

Hit the flip for more…

Wow!! Keep you and yours safe these next few days!
