- — Piers Morgan Tonight (@PiersTonight)Mon, Oct 29 2012 18:56:59Conflicting reports of water on the floor of the NYSE. First report of 3 feet of water on floor may be unconfirmed.
- — Morgan Palmer (@MorganPalmer)Mon, Oct 29 2012 18:57:57Lots of sketchy/false reports. The NYSE flood report was relayed through the NWS storm report network citing “broadcast media.”

- — The Weather Channel (@weatherchannel)Mon, Oct 29 2012 19:00:51New reports from The Weather Channel News Desk show that the NY Stock Exchange does not have 3 ft. of water on trading floor. #Sandy
- BuzzFeed's Andrew Kaczynski reports that the rumor may have been started on Twitter by @comfortablysmug.
- The National Weather Service denies that the rumor originated with them.
