Serious New York, New York (And Toronto)



So New York is experiencing a hurricane! Hurricane Sandy! So is Toronto! All my relatives live there, including my two tiny cousins! I'm a little worried, can you tell?



Not quite what Frank Sinatra imagined. The underground subways are flooded, the streets are flooded, deaths have occured:

Quote:
A warehouse worker near where a woman in her 50s was killed after being struck by a Staples sign in Monday night’s storm said he complained to the retailer about their sign.

A red Staples sign, measuring around 4.5 metres by 1.5 metres, lay on the ground on Tuesday, cordoned off with yellow police tape, hours after it allegedly struck a woman on a west-end street.

“It was like that for months and months,” said the employee of Family Communications Warehouse, who did not wish to be identified for fear of retribution.

“You could see it; some days when the winds were picking up, you could see it come up level and come down again. I don’t know if they were hinges broken. They were told months ago about it ... nobody seemed to do anything about it.”

Police arrived at a plaza at St. Clair Ave. W. and Keele St. around 7 p.m. Monday and found the woman suffering from injuries to her head and neck area.

The woman was moved to another area of the parking lot — deemed safer from debris whipped up from high winds — where emergency crews began performing CPR on her.

But EMS couldn’t resuscitate her and she died at the scene.

All that being said, according to something I heard in passing on CNN, Sandy will boost the economy of the US by giving more jobs to unemployed construction workers.

The damage and death toll from sandy is really sky rocketing. At this rate the total damage costs could break 50 Billion. I don't want to even think about the death toll.

I believe I read the damage was estimated topping out at 30 bil. Death toll is still under 40 at this time. It's not the apocalypse, like what happened in New Orleans, but it's going to take a while for NYC to get running again.

So this thread hasn't included New Jersey. most of the state will not have power for a week. there is no transit and most of the roads are restricted, closed, or under curfew. no gas and limited food. a few cities bordered by the ocean have been devastated. there's a giant fuck you vibe because it looks like nothing is going to be done anytime soon

Obama is actually in New Jersey and has been meeting and speaking with Christie for a few days now. Christie has given nothing but effusive praise for the president, shocking a lot of people who expected partisan business as usual. It seems like...people are actually working together. From what I'm reading, I am not getting either a "scrambling" vibe nor a "fuck you" vibe at this time.

Well, Romney seems to be scrambling. Obama seems to be presidenting.

A mutual friend actually found an open Wendy's there in Jersey. Score!

(Small victories. They're going through a shitton.)

i like how it seems mitt doesn't seem to get that subtle hints back at your campaign aren't really going to make you look better than obama, who's actually using his power and connections to make an effort to fix shit.

i think i'll vote for the guy who's actually doing his job, instead of a do-nothing pretender.
