Colin Coward: Hmmm...I keep seeing people on twitter retweeting Sandy pics from "Anonymous" twitter account. I clicked it but it said I had to click something else to show the pic. Way to go hackers.

Fake. Takei's been posting that one too. It's a shop.


No offense but I'll be waiting for a more official confirmation of that...

Lollipop165: CapeFearCadaver: [Updated at 9:27 p.m.] Five people have been killed in the state of New York - including a man hit by a tree while inside his Queens home - due to Sandy, said Rich Azzopardi, a spokesman for Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Link

Damn. Stay safe everyone.

At around 8:30 pm tonight I heard screaming outside if my window. Went running to see if someone was in trouble.

Yeah it was some women walking in the street with like 5 young kids "playing" in the wind. They weren't hiding for cover. They were acting like this shiat is a joke.

So damn stupid.


I was in Florida as a kid for hurricane Elena, My dad and I stood on skateboards with a sheet held between us and got going pretty fast down the street!

Probably the steam system backing up. Biggest system like it around. I think the 14th St power plant is the prime-mover for the system.

Someone up-thread complained it was a "shop," but I would imagine you're seeing small and then steadily larger transformers fail catastrophically into balls of plasma, same as an arc of lightning. Behind it would be millions of volts of electricity overloading the overload circuits, I guess.

To be fair, a lot of those houses are built REALLY close to the shore, especially the summer homes. I'm surprised this hasn't happened more often, frankly, although it's probably due to the major storms coming in winter when the lake is mostly frozen.

Copper vaporizing when things get shorted out. it's not so much that the "explosion" is that big, it's just extremely bright and overwhelms the sensor in the camera.
