Good Morning ATS,
I haven't posted in a while and was debating this one, but I feel that this one is worth the trouble.
I'm not sure if any of you are aware, but the Tropical Storm that made its way up the east coast after Irene, really did us (Pennsylvanians) in.
People got distracted by the media blowup, that Irene would be of catastrophic proportions...
It wasn't.. or was it?
That's what I thought until I heard the following.
That's the city near by my bosses farm. My manager and boss had left work for a few weeks to tend to their farm which they do once a year, usually
around the end of summer. They were there, all was well.
And then Hurricane Irene came.
I was in Philadelphia, working, the storm came, passed, and the only immediate damage I saw was the river flooding about 10 feet, which was actually
pretty wild. Now at first I said, heck, there's nothing to see here. And moved on with my daily routine.
A few days go by and I hear of the Tropical Storm, nothing to worry about though, we just survived our first Category 1 Hurricane!
Then the next few days, stories started coming in, which in essence, is the only reason I decided to post. I feel compelled to bring this to your
Flooding I tell you, Flooding! You all have heard about it, but did you hear about how an entire city (Bloomsburg) was closed down because of it.
In a State of Emergency because of people breaking into stores stealing everything they could get there hands on. Roads being completely washed away,
highways even, homes split in half, people losing all their belongings.
The National Guard telling people they can't leave. No power, heat, electricity, water, anything? Did any of you hear the intensity and the truth of
This was told to me first hand from my manager who went a week without power, and managed to go 10 hours out of the way before making it back to
Bloomsburg's only three or so hours away, and no one in Philly even knows this!
And worst of all, theirs a Nuclear Power Plant near by! Guess what! All their Nuclear Radioactive waste has been leaking into the local streams/
ground for the past week!
Are you serious!? Every ones gonna get cancer now. Nothing on RSOE, nothing! Why's the media ignoring this, why doesn't anybody know? This is
catastrophic people, it really is. And the sad part is, no one really knows whats happening.
Please ATS, please spread the word, these people need our help.
Their are elderly people, among everyone else, who are losing everything they need to survive. This is serious, and this is real, and I couldn't not
post this any longer.
