styckx: JSam21: FDNY continues to ask for ConEd ETAs... Dispatch keeps stating that they, ConEd, aren't giving etas... Wires on fire all over the place, wires arcing... ConEd just needs to shut down the grid right now.

Can you give me a link to the feed you're listening to?


I have the scanner radio app for my phone... No link I'm sorry
 
2012-10-30 05:57:35 AM  

JSam21: Ape_Stone: Listening to the scanners, another fire just broke out.

I'm guessing this is when mine cut out... Where is this location?


I'm not sure, it's crazy hectic and the radios keep cutting in and out, but they are coordinating the trucks there now, seems there may be a handicapped person in the building.

Ok, found a good NYFD stream.. Link if any wants it.

That one is even better and much more clear. Thank you!

I'm not sure if this is the one you're looking for, but here's the FDNY Queens Fire Dispatch Live Audio Feed.

2.5 hours to high tide... Looks like they are going to pull everyone out before then..
 
2012-10-30 06:01:25 AM  
8ft surge they are expecting.. That ain't going to be good considering the water level is already insanely above normal.
 
2012-10-30 06:02:05 AM  
Just announced to find safe refuge before high tide... Calling for another 8ft surge
 
2012-10-30 06:02:22 AM  
What kind of makes me sad is that the original WTC didn't get to show how well it was designed for this sort of thing. Very well engineered buildings. Leslie Robertson and Minoru Yamasaki(RIP) have much to be proud of.

Just gave the call for all units to pull back to safe haven before the storm surge hits.

And with the scanners going across boroughs, it is hard since the grid repeats across boroughs. Manhattan/Bronx are on the same grid. Queens and Brooklyn are on individual grids.

I want to say it was Brooklyn. Don't quote me on that but I believe the unit called Brooklyn dispatch.
 
2012-10-30 06:04:28 AM  
Did I just hear that right? 25 people trapped in a flooded area?
 
2012-10-30 06:05:02 AM  

styckx: Did I just hear that right? 25 people trapped in a flooded area?


That's what I heard, but the call just came down, they have no one available to send.
 
2012-10-30 06:05:11 AM  
25 people trapped now...

2012-10-30 06:07:04 AM  
Radio keeps craping out... Are they in a building? Nursing home?
 
2012-10-30 06:07:32 AM  
The NYFD is insanely calm and collective considering the metric shiat ton of bullshiat he's dispatching
 
2012-10-30 06:07:32 AM

You know, poor planning here. Arrangements should have been made for the sun to be on all night.

yeah :)

Unknown, sounds like it was very limited info, they don't know if they are okay to move on their own, or if they are going to need ambulatory assistance.
 
2012-10-30 06:08:48 AM  
Nassau County LI, don't use the water, don't drink, don't bathe in it, don't brush your teeth eiyh it....
 
2012-10-30 06:09:07 AM  
I've got my radio at work going off and trying to listen to this feed also is tough...
 
2012-10-30 06:09:39 AM  
I'm googling all these addresses.. Lower Manhattan appears to be completely submerged just going by these calls

styckx: The NYFD is insanely calm and collective considering the metric shiat ton of bullshiat he's dispatching


A normal day for FDNY is all sorts of crazy farked up shiat. This is just crazy farked up shiat turned up to eleven. Fall back on training and get the job done.
 
2012-10-30 06:10:13 AM  
Man these guys just sound exhausted.

Well if the could've done that the tide wouldn't have been a problem.

It's been that way since yesterday afternoon.

The addresses they just listed off where out on the barrier islands by the Rockaways. Dumbshiats that didn't evac.

Gas leak and partial collapse? And those 25 are going to be stuck until after the tide goes back out...
 
2012-10-30 06:11:09 AM  
Did I hear that right, a gas leak now, but it's not going to be able to be accessed in time for the high tide?

Battery Park is above water now, as seen by the reporters standing on the path at the water's edge.

That is what I heard and took from the transmission... It's going to get much worse on the barrier

Let me take a moment this:

Following breaking news is my absolute favorite thing about Fark. You farkers are the best people in the world to watch things unfold with, every angle and every source of news is accounted for with the appropriate amount of snark and compassion.

This shiat is crazy. stay safe all of you east coasters.

I think so, like I said earlier it's not over yet.

What gets me is you don't have to spend a lot of time on ocean front property to understand the raw power of the ocean, harbors and back bays when they are angry and flooding.

WHY WOULD ANYONE STAY DURING THIS shiat?

It boggles my mind anyone on any coast would think staying anywhere near water was a good idea.

Seriously, if you scripted all this, even Michael Bay would call you unrealistic and then scream at you to get the fark out of his office.

Hopefully this one is smaller since it has less wind behind it.

Have they given any estimates?
 
2012-10-30 06:16:06 AM  
Fires are popping up like in the Bay Area quake in 91. It's going to get very very bad

I was down in Key West 2 weeks ago... I remember stating to me girlfriend that there is no way I would stick around there if any type of storm was rolling in.
