NEW YORK- Manhattan resident Laura Zarougian is weathering the storm that is Superstorm Sandy.

She told Newsradio 620 WTMJ that where she is -- midtown Manhattan -- people are trying to stay calm.

"There were power outages everywhere, we heard police telling people to get inside and get off the streets," describes Zarougian.

She says the superstorm has calmed down, as of Tuesday afternoon, since it struck Monday.

"There is light rain, light winds now, but nothing too bad."

Zarougian says she's staying inside and reading until the storm is done.  With the subways still flooded, she points out that the only way to get around Manhattan is by a taxi.
