Sharon Romano always seems to get a front row seat when something goes wrong in New York.
Romano was in North Tower of the World Trade Center when it was hit by Al-Qaeda hijackers on September 11, 2001. She was in the front room of her house next to a power station that exploded after Hurricane Sandy hit the city on Monday night.
The explosion has become notorious for plunging much of Manhattan into darkness with about 200,000 inhabitants now facing several days without electricity.
