Hurricanes

2 years, 4 months ago

Hurricane Sandy is on its way to the east coast.. I have no doubt that it will be a doozey of a storm that the north east rarely sees, but what does everyone think about the medias’ perception of hurricanes such as Sandy. Is it neccesary to over-exagerate, or should the media lean closer to the truth? I’ll continue leaving updates as the Eye of the Storm passes through. Dom, dom, DOM.

@johnnymorris128, there are two sides to every story, obviously, but I think it’s a win-win for them to provide a tone of coverage like this no matter what because either:

a) They aren’t over-hyping it and it’s a big deal; people are prepared and safe

or

b) They are exaggerating its effects; they get high ratings still and the local area just wasted a little time and money

It’s not as if people are really THAT bad off by preparing for the worst, though I’d be annoyed to have evacuated only to find out nothing happened. I’d much rather be annoyed and alive than suspicious and dead.

I’m worried about the storm, and I pray for everyone’s safety who will go through it. The media has a way of over-hyping things for ratings, but for storms better safe than sorry. I would rather have the news blowing the thing out of proportion and be wrong than the other way around.
Take care of yourself, I hope it isn’t bad.
Shiver your timbers and batten down the hatches, matey, because the waves and winds are coming!

I live on the Gulf Coast and went through Hurricane Katrina. It’s super important to be prepared for hurricanes and evacuate if possible because every hurricane has different strengths and weaknesses.

The media is over-hyping, I think, to get ratings. Since Hurricane Katrina left so much damage to the gulf coast people sympathized for the people over here. The media wants to play on your emotions and they know that a hurricane will get the people watching.

Things are pretty calm right now. There have been stronger winds pulling through, but nothing out of the ordinary for New England right now.

@ojai, Boston got a water balloon thrown at them. There were power outtages and heavy winds, but nothing as extreme as NYC. I saw a picture someone posted on facebook of Manhattan and it was strange to see darkness covering that part of the city. Looks like the city that never sleeps took a break for a few days.

A large part of southern brooklyn (Coney Island, Brighton Beach, Sheepshead Bay, Gertisen Beach) is submerged, my mother and grandparents got evacuated. A lot of people’s cars are completely underwater, lets see how the the high tide in the morning is going to worsen the affect.
The east side where the mid tunnel is, is a basically a pool, with a con ed plant explosion

The financial district, has areas where it looks like waterfalls….

Ehhh the rain, and storm itself is nothing its the flooding damage,

Toronto Canada is getting the “Mist” of the hurricane. Strong winds and rain here but not nearly as bad as New York or NJ
