Meanwhile, Sebastian Junger will be in studio for an exclusive interview, as the author of "The Perfect Storm: A True Story of Men Against the Sea" compares "Sandy" to the infamous Halloween Nor’easter of 1991.

Also, CNN weather anchor Chad Myers and hurricane expert Nicholas Coch will be on hand with updates and analysis of the storm, while New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and Newark Mayor Cory Booker will be on the program with updates from their respective cities.

      Media needs help. I don't want to see the reporters being blown away reporting. How about some straight forward TRUTH from reporters.

    I just finished watching Pierce Morgan verbally assault two individuals from New York Hospital about the generators failing last night, resulting in the evacuation of the hospital. Rather than focusing on the successful and difficult task of moving all the patients, he bantered on and on about investigating the failure of the generators. Shame on you Pierce and CNN for allowing such an awful interview during an unimaginable and difficult time for millions of people. Do you think you really accomplished anything during that interview, other than making yourself look like a jerk?! Do you know how to fix a generator? Could you have successfully directed that evacuation? Are you even aware of the incredible devestation that just took place, including loss of life? Our hearts in Chicago go out to all of you affected by the storm.

      I totally agree with Lisa! Piers was a royal jack-ass during the interview with the 2 men from NYC hospital. I am a nurse, and can only imagine what the staff and patients in that hospital went through. I dont know what happened to the generators, but I do know that no person nor anything is perfect. everything has the potential to fail!! It was like you were kickin' a man that was already down, All I can say is you were a JERK.

      Once again, Piers does not care about the facts. There were multiple generators, not just one. For all to have failed, some outside event will have had to come into play, e.g. generator vault getting flooded. Not sure what the facts were in this case, but clearly Piers wasn't interested. Piers WANTED there to only have been one generator. Piers loves "The World According to Piers." When he shows up on CNN, I change channels.

    Romney must link Obama's premature reaction to a looming Hurricane Sandy with a press conference on Sunday, a full day before the storm made landfall, with that surrounding the attacks in Benghazi. He needs to ask why the response this time was so quick. He must be the one to ask that question! He needs to make the point that Obama looks like a guy with a poor grasp of two different situations.

    What was this being upset about the generators at the hospital about ? Perhaps they are located outsite and water was blown into the air intakes. Of course if Piers would have designed the system he would have considered that a monster storm would come in and cause havoc. Of course one being english one has to present a superior demeanor and treat other as if they less intelligent.

    I concur that Pierce Morgan was totally insensitive to a devastating situation. Instead of inquiring about and acknowleging the heroic efforts of the hospital in dealing with a catastrophic situation, he choose to attack these gentlemen about a generator failure. Of course, equipment fails sometimes during incredible storms and flooding. None of us have the psychic powers of Piers Morgan to anticipate that situation. We were so offended that we immediately changed the channel; not sure if we will return. Our thoughts are with the people in the Northeast.

    Piers is an ass. Has he ever been part of a hospital evacuation?

    Was pierce this upset at the hospital administration in Joplin because they got hit by a tornado? Back off Pierce.

    Watching tonight, Nov 1. More irresponsible interviewing by Piers on after effects of the devastating storm. You cannot totally prevent all destruction by mother nature and leading already angry New Yorkers to believe you can is ridiculous. The people who go through hurricanes all the time know that services are not going to be restored in a day or two. When infrastructure is wiped out, it takes time to rebuild. Piers should have been helping people to understand this instead of pouring gasoline on the fire. Shape up, get real, help people understand the reality of the situation and what is possible.

      Unbelievable!!! This type of reporting/questioning has really driven me away from CNN. A responsible person of the media doesn't use his time on television to place blame immediately after a tragedy. The truth is...Storms happen and sometimes they hit populated areas. No amount of planning could have stopped that kind of force. You have obviously never had to complete any type of risk management assessment. In the early aftermath of tragedy you don't tear people down...you try to build them up. You have berated those that are hurting while boosting the egos of those like Michael Moore. Really? Michael Moore? I am disgusted with this coverage, and NO, one storm does not prove the global warming hype, what a terrible time to bring this up, it's sad...
