I'm also in awe of my own roommate Abby's experience on Monday night. A night nurse at NYU Langone Medical Center, Abby and her fellow NICU nurses spent more than 10 hours transporting 20+ premature babies to other hospitals when NYU lost power and the generators failed. They went up and down 9 flights of stairs holding extremely fragile babies in the dark -- apparently one special care baby needed more than 6 nurses just to hold all of its pumps! (You can see Abby's co-worker Margot featured in the Anderson Cooper, here!) Also amazing: ambulances from all over the country (even as far as California & Texas) drove for days to get to New York during this emergency crisis.
