Storm Brings New York City To Its Knees!


www.nytimes.com

A brief but fierce storm drenched the New York region just before the morning rush yesterday, paralyzing the transit system, flooding major thoroughfares, cutting off electricity to thousands of homes and causing confusion that lingered through a humid, sweaty day.
The deluge overwhelmed storm sewers, and one woman was killed after her car became stuck in a flooded underpass on Staten Island. The police said another car struck hers, starting a fire that burned her so badly that her body could not be immediately identified.

So that’s what happens to a metropolitan city in America like New York in a storm, which literally blew it away. Infrastructure collapsed, with commuter rail service interrupted, hundreds of airline flights delayed, water knocking out signals, stranding or delaying millions of riders. There was uncertainty about how to get to work and of anger at what 1.7 inches of rain could do to disrupt the city’s daily routines.

Heck! If that’s the condition of New York with 1.7 inches of rain, what would happen to other lesser cities? And in a terror strike scenario of a mini nuke detonation or poison gas (Which isn’t sci-fi anymore), or even a moderate quake, it would be curtains!

rain fell at 3 inches an hour and there were three touch downs of a tornado resulting in major flooding and wind damage to brooklyn and queens. the transit was shut down in those boroughs as a result of the flooding.

I can attest to the hell as my baby sitter never made it to work and the commute home was so bad that when a train finally arrived (after 40 minutes in a sweat box subway platform) it went one stop and dumped us all at another sweat box that took over 20 minutes of shuffling thru the throngs of smelly sweaty passengers to get out of. I walked home in the 100 degree weather as it was cooler on the street than in the useless subway

Why do these things always seem to happen when Israeli settlers are being dragged from their homes? Its well very odd.

These things happen.

London got battered by the storms that led to the floods a few weeks ago. You recover and get on with things.
