Sandy's Devastation...NYU Med School Library Totaled
Reports from my son the NYU Med School student: The Ehrman Medical Library is totally flooded, along with all anatomy and technology labs, lecture halls, radiology equipment, MRIs etc. located at the NYU Langone Medical Center on First Avenue in New York City. Phones and servers too are down and the hospital has been evacuated.
Here is footage of the Dean of the Medical School, Dr. Robert Grossman speaking about the situation.
