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.

Thinking about it, a hurricane would be a pretty good way to dispose of a body. I wonder if any of the "falling limb" dead had any gambling debts.

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.


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.

Point taken... my first car was a Raider... I kinda prayed some flood would take it away; until I rolled it into a power pole.

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.


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.

DeltaPunch: They should call Cory Booker, according to his Twitter feed he's been personally responding to nearly every disaster brought to his attention.


My view of Cory Booker may be clouded by distance, but every time I hear/see a story about something he's done or said I think to myself "self, that man is a damned good person".

Nobody is gonna care about Jersey. New York has a problem.

On the plus side you will get some recognitionn for your disaster no later than 2015.

West Virginia is buried up to their farkin noses in snow and they arent even on the schedule for pity yet.

But New Jersey is its own state with its own issues and disaster response mechanisms. As would an emergency in Philadelphia or D.C. would be as well.

Wouldn't want it to get wet.

It's crazy though, the same storm system is dumping a rain/sleet mixture on me with 35mph winds, pretty much all the way to work this morning. Guess I get to leave early today.

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.

I live up in Ulster County, and I'm very thankful that so far, we've missed everything. We had a bad rainstorm with some wind.

Of course, if the storm goes north as I'm told it will, we're probably going to be hit on the second go-around.

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.
