I have been watching the other threads on this disaster but wanted to post about a specific thing.
Link to news source
New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg estimated that 30,000-40,000 homes in the city alone have been left unusable by the October 29 storm as
the cold intensifies.
So the chances of people freezing to death in large numbers becomes a real threat
Considering a conservative estimate of 3 people per home. Thats at least 6 million people without power
Almost two million homes are still without power and a new storm predicted to hit on Wednesday is bringing more heavy rain and
Between 30,000 and 40,000 homes are left unusable
TENS of thousands of people whose homes were destroyed or damaged by superstorm Sandy are facing a new crisis in New York as temperatures
plunge, raising the spectre of people freezing to death.
Working on the same average people per house thats over 100,000 homeless people.
Where the hell are these people going to be housed? Where are they now? Are the they still inside the damaged houses desperately screaming for help to
be rescued or are they ignoring the relocation orders?
I think we will see a lot of people die from this, if they do not get shelter. It could end up being in the thousands.
That would be terrible because it could be avoided.
Where are all the people at this time. There must be people everywhere. Haven't actually seen many photos to show the people and what state they are
Surely this careless mis-management is not the result of intentional sabotage. I would like to think not.
edit to add
The US Energy Department says 2.5 million customers remain without power across seven states. Each "customer" however could be a home with
several people living inside.
So 2.5 million x several? estimate at 10 million people without power.
