A massive boat evacuation took place from lower manhattan island.
To put it into perspective, the evacuation of french and british soldiers from Dunkirk during WWII moved over 300,000 people over the span of 9 days. This evacuation from New York City rescued over 500,000 people in 9 HOURS!
Absolutely amazing stuff.
