I was really surprised at the lack of coverage as well.
My husband works for a disaster recovery company and so he went up there to Tenn. to help out. When he got in around 3:30 or so Tuesday morning he
called me and was really upet by all the devastation he saw. Apparently there were towns even still under some 9ft of water, (I think that's the
number he said). There are a lot of crews up there trying to get things back to livable condition for the residents but it's just so widespread.
I've been watching the news on and off for stories on Tenn and there is just so very little being talked about. It seems ridiculous to me. I don't
care if it was 30 lives or 3 lives, they are still lives
. Something horrible still happened. The thing that really gets me is they play the
same crap over and over again about this supposed terroist that they caught just in time (uh-huh, sure). I see news on people's pet doing stupid
things but they cant find the time to cover something this big? I'm baffled. But then this is the MSM so I don't know why I expected anything else.
Editing to add- I'm so sorry for you and your family's loss 12gauge
