Listening to FD scanner, you can hear the absolute frustration of fire fighters who are being told to move back due to high tide coming in. The reports of people calling for rescue, and can't be reached. It's so horribly sad...


I would have thought that things would have been better this morning, but the gas buildups are starting to erupt, a lot of fires, and no way to put them out.

I started reading through this thread hours ago and just now caught up.I was thinking something all the way through it,and your post just underscored exactly what I was gonna say:Everything happening the way it is reminds me of that show called "Life After People".It shows with computer graphics and simulations what kinds of things would happen if we were wiped out and nature and the infrastructures were left to their own devices,so to speak.
Except for,in reality now--it's all happening WITH people,but we are powerless in so many ways because of the number of circumstances that,alone,might not be TOO bad,but all together,they make for some very tragic scenarios.
I live in central NC and we have been getting pretty 'mild' conditions here considering what everyone else has had.I wish prayers,love,compassion and white light to all people devastated by this in some way,and to all the folks not in immediate harms way,but that have friends and loved ones thate are effected.

so, just checking in - it's 7:17 am now in brooklyn, and from the information i'm getting, the death toll is already thought to be around 80 people, off the record. this is coming straight from a personal friend of mine whose significant other is an EMT.

public transportation is still completely shut down. the train station by my house is absolutely flooded. the water is almost reaching the standing platform.

i really never thought it could get this bad in NYC. things are lookin pretty dark in the day ahead if they can't find a way to get this power back on. i'm already hearing confirmed reports of people posing as con ed workers around brighton beach burglarizing people's homes. if anybody's reading this around the brooklyn area, your best bet is to stay inside for the time being.

I heard mention of a GOP ruling that; any found looting will be given a mandatory six month all expenses paid,
trip to the nearest FEMA camp.

Any intel on this ?

Don't worry... sometime soon the MSM will have that poster child, pet, or old person that was rescued from certain death. Then they will repeat the story again, again, and yet again. Happens every disaster. Just ignore the masses of human sufferering that is occurring and the people who died... focus on the one happy rescue and happy person! Yay!

Des, i completely agree. i can't believe people would do something like that to their neighbors at a time like this, above all else. unfortunately, and i don't mean to say this as a justification, but the circumstances of some of the guilty lead them to such atrocious behavior. brighton beach doesn't necessarily have the most pristine living conditions, if you know what i mean.

with that being said, the skies around here do seem to be clearing up. let's just hope this can be over sooner than later. it's been one hell of a night.

With all the fake pics and intel coming behind this whole event--I would take it with a grain of salt right now.I'm not saying it's NOT true,cuz crazier things have happened,I'm just saying that I have heard this 'rumor' a couple times in the past 4 hours and have yet to find anything solid to back it up.

The storm isn't over and also high-tide is due (that's the way I understood it,anyway).Be careful,don't get swept away or electrocuted.

I know there is more important issues at hand but hopefully, when you get around to checking your stuff ( and this applies to all involved...)

I hope you will be happily surprised or happily insured!!

I spent most of the day and night yesterday reading the posts on this thread as they came in.

We were lucky, although in the path of Sandy, we suffered little/no damage from her. My heart and prayers, love and light go out to those affected by this.

A lot of people around here are complaining about the "hype", and I have to admit that I was more concerned about the "lack" of hype by our local news centers. I feared that many people would put themselves in danger by listening to the "downplay" by our local media. I took this storm seriously, prepared early and hoped for the best. I was lucky, our area was lucky and I am sure that the coming days will be filled with mixed emotions around here, as the after effects of this storm become apparent.

Here's the thing.Someone else pointed this out earlier,so I'm gonna kinda repeat it.Looters (as we basically understand the word,as cast in a NEGATIVE light) are scum,as well as any and all people who deliberately seek to scam and bilk people after a disaster.I think horrible things should come back to them karmically,whatever that might be.
But I will qualify--that anyone in a survival situation wherein it's life or death who are normally upstanding citizens and moral,etc--that's a gray area,like someone mentioned starving people waiting it out for food in the aftermath of Katrina and none came and they finally had to resort to taking what was not theirs in an abandoned store or something and eat,drink or get medical or such supplies.
I just felt the need to clarify what I personally considered "looting".

Now here is something you don't see everyday. That's one heck of a way to avoid dock fees!

We somehow managed to keep power in my area. I'm wondering if the derecho earlier in the year didn't help by taking out all the week trees. Of course I haven't gone outside yet to check the damage so it could be worse than I think.

This morning I drove into work to check on the generators, and to see if we can get some kind of mini-office set up with some of the servers, because our power will be out there for days according to the power company. This is days of nothing happening which is going to hurt our business and employees.

Driving there, I could see that the town is completely out of power in that area. The traffic lights are not working and everything is dark. There are trees down and branches and debris everywhere! There are many roads closed due to downed lines. (I live very close to work or would not have attempted it.) In our neighborhood and everywhere around us, there are chunks of roofs, aluminum siding, and broken fences laying all over. The SIZE of the trees this brought down is frightening! My father lost 8 trees on his property. There are 6 huge trees down on the property at work. I drove past many other trees laying into the roads and crashed against homes and buildings. Nothing much can be done about them until the rain stops. It is still raining and a little windy.

We are on the outskirts of this storm, since the eye went a little south. We are about an hour and 1/2 north of Philadelphia. I can only imagine what others how were hit dead on are going through today.
