Mayor Bloomberg shocked reporters when he said that the National Guard would round-up any looters and take them to internment camps in upstate New York.* “We have installed a zero tolerance policy for looters.* If you* loot, you will be put in an internment camp for six months – at the minimum.”


This is what my friend just sent me. Can anyone back this up? I am asking for a source from him now.


I'm a Katrina survivor. With major flooding and city evacuations you have to allow for some looting. This was the case in New Orleans. We had no services for days and no aid. When the water started to go down people looted the stores. Cops standing by, just letting them.. of course.. everything in the stores is insured so the stores didn't lose a dime. People needed food and supplies and looting was the only way to get them. That food saved lives. If you were in one of these areas, you were not prosecuted for looting.

Whoaa if that can be verified... scary.
I've been on ATS and had CNN on all night in FL I've seen my share of hurricanes but there is something very surreal about seeing it happen across the Northeast, in NYC...and I don't know anything about meteorology but that storm is wild. I have a feeling it's going to be around for awhile. But the way the media has been handling it had by conspiracy radar going off and I can't place why yet. that's sad, what someone said about the homeless in the tunnels not knowing... I had wondered about them.
Peace & light to any who don't tonight.. and I can't imagine the cold!
what someone said about hurricane parties, they're right tho. Being drunkenly easily amused, forcing it, really can save you quite a bit of sanity. You'll get through power outages just remember what they said about the water being toxic, I hope everyone has bottles. I hope even if things get rough people don't turn...this kind of thing can go a few ways and personally I hope I hear stories of random acts of kindness that occurred during this.. weather 2012 is mad

Not likely. Unlike Japan, there was plenty of warning time to prepare for possible power outages and flooding prior to Sandy's arrival. Hurricanes roll in over hours, earthquakes kick you in the arse.

In anticipation of Sandy, extra plant personnel would have been called in to monitor any likelihood of hi winds or flooding. Power production or "percent of capacity" would be reduced and all back up systems would be placed on standby just in case. The only time something like this would result in a plant shutdown is if winds increased beyond safety margins or flooding was detected outsaide the plants main water feed inlets and outlets. Unlike the Tsunami in Japan, any water level increase would be slow in nature and countermeasures would be implemented.

Sandy has been reduced to Tropical Storm status and even though heavy rains are anticipated, these power plants in the region have experienced this (and worse) before. They are alert and know what to do.

I wonder how all the homeless people are coping. I hope they had time to get to a shelter or just somewhere safe. I saw a photograph while browsing and the homeless person was all rugged up sitting in a bus stop shelter - with all their belongings in a shopping trolley.

I also wonder how all the animals cope - the pets that are not cared for and the strays who are vulnerable everyday. I hope the storm is over soon. I feel for everyone - even though I am in Australia - I feel the stress and the fear and the uncertainty.

For what it is worth - everyone and every animal - in my thoughts and sending you strength of Spirit to cope with now and to cope with whatever comes next.

Much Peace...for everyone and every animal in the midst of Sandy...

Yes, it's definitely heartbreaking thinking about all those critical patients who are being carried down staircases as we speak... Imagine the families who are wondering if their loved ones (in the hospital) are okay or not? Just feels like a solid punch to my stomach every time I begin thinking about it..


You should be reassured that each patient is in the hands of good people, risking their own lives - real bravery.


I missed your reply earlier. Thanks. Yes, I'm sure they are doing everything they can. I just hope it can be enough.

What is the point of the live cams if they get knocked out by the lightest winds? Last night I could watch them fine, now all the important ones are down.

Does anyone know of any working live cams in Atlantic City?

Listening to austin texas radio and Ground Zero was on. The host said that people were calling to say that something was going on at a Nuclear power plant and that sirens were going off.

I've been thinking the same things. Poor homeless people had no clue this was coming their way. So sad. I always feel for the animals too. So innocent. Let's hope this nightmare ends soon.

NYC proper, So powers down and maybe hard to bring back up due to salt water contamination and corrosion. Subways flooded and even when pumped out have the same salt water contamination of all switching and control, each and every will have to be cleaned and inspected. Water suppy compromised and a host of other problems going on when daylight shows real extent of damage.

Can New Yorkers hold it together and be civil? can NYC government hold it togtether and be civil? those are my questions tonight.

Something makes me think that the elections are going to be the least of our problems. I am concerned about it, but with Sandy going on, we have a distraction. So while we are not really looking, what is really going on? Where are we not looking and what is going on with this distraction?

Oyster Creek is the oldest nuclear power plan if I'm not mistaken.

Here is some good news to cheer you up! The famous wild horses of Chincoteague, VA (a coastal island) have been saved. The locals allowed many of them to higher ground.

Sirens huh? A Nuclear plant? Which one? Your link to Oyster creek sounds like this earlier one...

www.cbsnews.com...


The plant, currently in a regularly scheduled outage, declared the Alert at approximately 8:45 p.m. EDT due to water exceeding certain high water level criteria in the plant’s water intake structure.
An Alert is the second lowest of four NRC action levels. The Alert was preceded by an Unusual Event, declared at approximately 7 p.m. EDT when the water level first reached a minimum high water level criteria. Water level is rising in the intake structure due to a combination of a rising tide, wind direction and storm surge. It is anticipated water levels will begin to abate within the next several hours.

Alarms shouldn't be ring-ging if the plant is "shut down" for scheduled maintenance. "Shut Down" is pretty specific. It implies the plant is off line in "cold' shut down for maintenance. How many reactors are at that site?
