SEASIDE HEIGHTS, NEW JERSEY (WAFF)-
The hurricane-ravaged east coast has been receiving north Alabama help, but crews learned they'll be doing work in Long Island, New York instead of in New Jersey.
Crews from Decatur Utilities and Joe Wheeler out of Trinity headed up there this week, but Derrick Moore, one of the Decatur workers, said they were told by crews in New Jersey that they can't do any work there since they're not union employees.
The crews that are in Roanoke, Virginia say they are just watching and waiting even though they originally received a call asking for help from Seaside Heights, New Jersey.
The crews were told to stand down. In fact, Moore said the crew from Trinity is already headed back home.
Understandably, Moore said they're frustrated being told "thanks, but no thanks."
Huntsville Utilities said they were not turned away and are up in storm ravaged areas working.
SHAME ON SEASIDE (ignorant acting idiots). GOOD job to the media for a change though--At least he community knows WHY power restoration will be taking longer!!

Oh, you young wipper-snapper. Well now, I remember back in my days that there were 726,000 people a month losing their jobs. Unemployment was rising faster than we could count. But you young people just can't believe that those days actually happened. It was way back in 2008.

But in good news. The New York City Marathon is a go! Here's a question. Wouldn't all those police and volunteers be better used to help people.
Not to mention to those two big ass generators being used for the marathon when so many don't have heat, lights, any electric at all! But I'm sure they will think the marathon is worth the sacrafice, it's not like they are hurting right?

According to OTHER scientific FACTS of study though, it's a natural occurance in nature, that has been historically tracked for quite some time--warming waters in the Pacific, then cools, and the warming fluctuates over to the Atlantic, for documented durations of approx 10-15 years. Right now, it's the Atlantic oceans turn, for the next few years.

Look it up-any search engine will work.

Seven years after a disastrous response to Hurricane Katrina, the Federal Emergency Management Agency is winning praise for how it's dealing with Superstorm Sandy.
"This is the all-new FEMA, and the leadership is very, very good, very focused," said Dr. Irwin Redlener, a pediatrician and director of the National Center for Disaster Preparedness at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health. "They're doing an excellent job."
Even in the highly charged political environment days before the U.S. elections, FEMA won plaudits from governors of both parties
New Jersey's Chris Christie, whose state bore the brunt of the storm, told CBS News on Tuesday that "cooperation has been great with FEMA here on the ground," while Delaware's Jack Markell told CNN that people in his state have been "really, really impressed by the response of FEMA."
http://www.cnn.com/2012/11/01/us/sandy-fema/i...
Just wait to see how Christie deals with non union utility workers coming in to NJ to volunteer their time and assistance being turned away because they are non union.

The heartbreaking discovery came as residents and public officials complained that help has been frustratingly slow to arrive on stricken Staten Island, where 19 have been killed nearly half the death toll of all of New York City.

Garbage is piling up, a stench hangs in the air and mud-caked mattresses and couches line the streets. Residents are sifting through the remains of their homes, searching for anything that can be salvaged.
Who was that said this storm was "hyped"?

Ah think they were mistaken....

"We have hundreds of people in shelters," said James Molinaro, the borough's president. "Many of them, when the shelters close, have nowhere to go because their homes are destroyed. These are not homeless people. They're homeless now."

Molinaro complained the American Red Cross "is nowhere to be found" and some residents questioned what they called the lack of a response by government disaster relief agencies. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Federal Emergency Management Agency Deputy Administrator Richard Serino planned to tour the island on Friday.

Four days after Sandy lashed the East Coast with high winds and a huge storm surge, frustration mounted across New York City and well beyond as millions of people remained without power and motorists lined up for hours at gas stations in New Jersey and New York.

MORE TROOPS-MORE help!

Yet?

Not as strong as a Rush whiff, but nonetheless still a prognostication of dubious origin.
