Why does Jersey always have to one up New York. Is Christie that insecure?

Jesus fark, this is pretty grim shiat. I guess living on the East Coast and dealing with mostly tons of snow at worst has left me clueless about what it must be like to live in regular hurricane country.

Doom!

North jersey is well hit, though the storm peaked a while ago. Winds calmer now. There's a house split in half by a tree down the road.

Still seeing some arcing power lines off in the distance. All tri-state deaths so far are from falling limbs. Stay inside and away from trees people.

Not sure if it's a record, but a lot of major events are occurring in NYC. Flooding bad enough that it's make it extremely difficult for firefighters to get to a house fire in Queens. The explosion at a Con-Ed substation. Evacuation of NYU Medical Center after their backup generators failed, this being done despite flooded streets. Some of the patients being evacuated are newborns from NICU (neonatal intensive care unit). They're especially fragile since some of them were born prematurely.

I just saw a few of those after I had posted, but I just wasn't sure if it was because of all the headlines they had greenlit mocking the storm before it started, you know, killing people and stuff.

I keep saying holy crap. I haven't been to NYC since I moved from Buffalo, but it always has been one of my favorite cities and it sucks to see it falling into a hellish situations. It just seems like it might be easier to keep track of things in one thread instead of multiple.

A lot of major events, but they all fall under the category of "There's a hurricane."

House fires, power substations exploding, and medical evacuations are rare, but not unheard of events. If they were happening in isolation from NYC and the hurricane very few people would care other than "That's a shame." or "That's a cool video." I admit that evacuating a whole hospital due to adverse conditions is a pretty big deal, but it happened in Katrina too.

I'm not trying to say that all these events are insignificant or not newsworthy, but in my mind a news-flash is supposed to be breaking brand-new news, not multiple aspects of the same news unless it marks a significant shift in the news narrative (e.g. person goes from being near-death to dying, a trial verdict is returned, a water-hurricane turns into a fire-hurricane, etc.)

This is all pretty subjective, though it does give off the air of New York being somehow more important that the other places that bad things happen.

Not really. Not just because it would be impossible to fit all the ongoing events into one headline, let alone good planning, to have all the different NYC situations contained in one thread, but the sheer amount of comments spread out over multiple pages would make things much more difficult.

In addtion there's another new flash thread since Canada had yet another earthquake in the same region as before.

Admittedly, a couple of major hurricanes in a year can be somewhat challenging. And, as we see, even a storm like Sandy is causing problems. On thing we've learned in Florida is common sense and neighborly cooperation go a long way.

Bathia_Mapes: Not really. Not just because it would be impossible to fit all the ongoing events into one headline, let alone good planning, to have all the different NYC situations contained in one thread, but the sheer amount of comments spread out over multiple pages would make things much more difficult.

In addtion there's another new flash thread since Canada had yet another earthquake in the same region as before.


The Canada quakes, World Series, etc... Those all combined with the headlines earlier like "While the entire east coast snivels, cowers, and whines over a little wind and rain, the soldiers guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington go right on standing their vigil" just seemed like overcompensating with all the NYC focused ones.

Dude, WTF? it might possibly be edible, but if they paid so little care to the presentation, I would also be concerned about the level of care in the preparation. I don't care if the entire staff is working for minimum wage, that's a travesty; misshapen, hole in the middle, VERY poorly sliced... good lords of Cobol, it probably has some "Floor Spice" to boot.

Imagine for a second your home is invaded. Your defenses are overcome, the police are uncalled, and no one is expecting to hear from you for awhile. The intruder subdues you and you're all tied up, gagged, and just for metaphor literally bent over a barrel. The intruder says "Now I'm going to go steal all your jewelry and other valuables."

What's your plan? Every contingency has failed and things are going to get inexorably worse for awhile. What is your plan at that time? What CAN your plan be? It's hard enough to stop the tide when there isn't record flooding and you have weeks to prepare. What can you possibly do but standby and stay frosty with the units you've got and hope you don't need any of them.

2012-10-30 06:21:18 AM

Fubini: Bathia_Mapes: davidphogan: What's the simultaneous Newsflashes on the main page at the same time record? Are the admins just trolling us now?

Not sure if it's a record, but a lot of major events are occurring in NYC. Flooding bad enough that it's make it extremely difficult for firefighters to get to a house fire in Queens. The explosion at a Con-Ed substation. Evacuation of NYU Medical Center after their backup generators failed, this being done despite flooded streets. Some of the patients being evacuated are newborns from NICU (neonatal intensive care unit). They're especially fragile since some of them were born prematurely.

A lot of major events, but they all fall under the category of "There's a hurricane."

House fires, power substations exploding, and medical evacuations are rare, but not unheard of events. If they were happening in isolation from NYC and the hurricane very few people would care other than "That's a shame." or "That's a cool video." I admit that evacuating a whole hospital due to adverse conditions is a pretty big deal, but it happened in Katrina too.

I'm not trying to say that all these events are insignificant or not newsworthy, but in my mind a news-flash is supposed to be breaking brand-new news, not multiple aspects of the same news unless it marks a significant shift in the news narrative (e.g. person goes from being near-death to dying, a trial verdict is returned, a water-hurricane turns into a fire-hurricane, etc.)

This is all pretty subjective, though it does give off the air of New York being somehow more important that the other places that bad things happen.


Do you have any idea about the population density in this area?

lacydog: Cory Booker, the mayor of Newark, was cruising around with emergency personnel, taking warnings/distress messages on Twitter and apparently being a complete badass. I know Newark isn't the worst-off city, but that man has my respect.


If Cory Booker were anyone else, I'd say he's a master of PR bullshiat.

But the man is one of the few people, let alone politicians, who talks the talk and not just walks the

I'm sure he was just pre-emptively washing his hands of anything bad happening there. The mayor and Gov already have a history. No matter how strongly you urge people to evacuate there will always be some dumbasses who won't. and even though they created their own mess you still have to try to help them in their crisis. You cannot just turn a deaf ear to people in need.

It's like when Chris Christie had his chest pains and shortness of breath the last time. Even though his doctor told him plenty of times to quit stuffing his pig face and get off his fat ass and exercise he still came to the Emergency Room to care for him.

It's pretty farking easy to say "you're on your own" and pass the buck down the line. refusing to give Natl Guard help to one of, if not THE, hardest hit city in your state because you and the mayor "have a thing" and you need to politically disassociate yourself from any responsibility in this crisis.

So the Governor should risk the safety and lives of NG members because some incompetent mayor was elected by stupid people who decided they were too smart to evacuate and now want others to save their stupid asses?

Christy was right and remains right. AC can wait until it is safe for the NG, until then they get to pay for their shiatheaded choices. 

But then, Langford can't pull a Nagin and blame his decisions on the president, while his governor sits by doing nothing.

Bonanza Jellybean: Jesus fark, this is pretty grim shiat. I guess living on the East Coast and dealing with mostly tons of snow at worst has left me clueless about what it must be like to live in regular hurricane country.


A normal category 1 isn't too bad around here, some flooding, maybe power outages, but much of hurricane territory isn't as densely populated as the northeast. But this isn't really a normal category 1 and may have higher sustained winds (I've seen anywhere from 80 to 130 mph, which would make it a cat 3).

HELLO FROM JERSEY CITY!

Yea shiat was really real. Not South Jersey Shore real, but pretty farkin bad. Buildings less than a mile from me had 7 feet of water. I was comparably lucky, with only a foot in the basement, causing the loss of a couple boxes of books that were just a bit too low up on milk crates. Neighbors in the building lost quite a bit of artwork, clothing, books, furniture, etc.

A good chunk of the city still doesn't have power (or didn't as of a couple hours ago), trees fell everywhere and on everything, glass fell out of high rises, building facades and construction sites got wrecked, etc. etc.

I'm back to regular, with heat, hot water, power, etc (never lost running water or gas to cook with, thank whatever deity you want). Hoboken next door is shiatcanned in an unimaginable way. My block is about 17 feet above sea level - most of Hoboken is at 0 feet or below. They are well and truly farked sideways.
