SANDY HITS CITY WITH RECORD FLOODING, POWER OUTAGES

By: NY1 News

The city is beginning to feel the effects of Sandy as strong winds and flooding conditions are being reported, and comes on the heels of evacuations and placements in shelters for many New York City residents. | View a map of Zone A and city evacuation centers and find a city evacuation center near your home. | View a list of NYCHA housing developments in Zone A. | View NY1's latest Twitter updates on Sandy. | Send us your stories and questions about Sandy. | View viewer photos of Sandy's approach.

New Yorkers are battling a record storm surge as floodwaters from Sandy have overrun portions of the city from Lower Manhattan to the Rockaways, stranding scores of residents and leaving hundreds of thousands without electrical power.

As of late Monday night, there were reports of numerous residents trapped in their homes due to the high waters that submerged portions of Staten Island and the Rockaways. With many roads impassable, the Fire Department was forced to reach those trapped by boat.

An MTA spokesperson said that water has entered tunnels on the 1 line between Chambers Street to South Ferry in Lower Manhattan, subway tunnels under the East River, and the subway yard at 148th Street in Harlem.

The agency expects water in all subway lines in Lower Manhattan, but MTA crews say they will wait until the high tide and flood waters recede on Tuesday before they can pump out the water.

Meanwhile, more than 500,000 customers are without power throughout the five boroughs, including portions of Manhattan from the southern tip up to 39th Street.

According to Consolidated Edison, by around 11 p.m. there were approximately 249,264 customers in Manhattan without power, as well as about 70,629 customers without power in Brooklyn, about 72,965 customers in Queens, 74,851 customers in Staten Island and about 38,903 customers in the Bronx.

John Miksad, Con Ed's senior vice president of electric operations, said that there was an explosion at a Con Ed substation at East 14th Street and the FDR Drive.

According to Miksad, the explosion affected approximately 310,000 customers total.

There were no injuries in the explosion and no workers were trapped, according to Miksad, and the cause of the incident is still under investigation.

Miksad said it was too early to give a firm timetable for restoring power to customers affected by the damaged substation.

"We are in a bit of uncharted territory," he said.

Miksad also said those affected by an outage of this magnitude should not expect backup generators from Con Ed.

Before the explosion at the Con Ed substation, Miksad said Con Ed pre-emptively shut off three networks, two in Manhattan and one in Brooklyn, in anticipation of high tides, which Miksad said reached peak levels of as high as 14 feet.

Miksad estimated that it would take three to four days to restore power to the three networks pre-emptively shut off once Con Ed could get access to them.

According to Miksad, the pre-planned outages affected approximately 34,000 customers.

Miksad said there was also a separate, significant outage in Staten Island.

According to Miksad, customer counts could continue to rise. Estimates for restoration could also change as Con Ed workers assess the damage, according to Miksad.

To report a power outage, call 1-800-75-ConEd or log on to coned.com.

According to the National Weather Service, the water level at the Battery has exceeded 13 feet, surpassing the all-time record of 11.2 feet set in 1821.

"The storm has met our expectations," Mayor Michael Bloomberg told reporters at a Monday night press conference.

Among the storm's effects, Bloomberg said that the backup power at NYU Langone Medical center had failed and that 215 patients were moved to nearby facilities.

The mayor urged taxi and livery drivers to clear the roads for emergency vehicles and told New Yorkers, "Stay wherever you are."

Police say the 60th Precinct House in Coney Island was evacuated to another Brooklyn precinct. Officers in the 60th Precinct are still conducting patrols in the area.

Rising floodwaters have forced the Port Authority to close LaGuardia, Newark and Teterboro Airports.

Mayor Bloomberg said in his Monday night press conference that the heaviest rain has passed and the rest of the rain will be only showers.

 In addition to the Bayonne Bridge, Outerbridge Crossing and Cross Bay Veterans Memorial Bridge, Governor Andrew Cuomo ordered the Verrazano-Narrows, Throgs Neck and George Washington Bridges to be shut down at 7 p.m.

Earlier on Monday, both the Holland Tunnel and Brooklyn-Battery Hugh. L. Carey tunnel were closed to traffic due to flooding.

The MTA posted a message on Twitter at approximately 8:45 p.m. saying that the Queens Midtown Tunnel was closed, effective immediately.

The FDR Drive between the Battery and 155th Street is also closed.

It is unclear when these bridges and roadways will reopen.

The mayor says the city's public schools will remain closed Tuesday and that New Yorkers should be prepared to feel the effects of the storm through Wednesday.

The New York City Office of Emergency Management headquarters will be open 24 hours during the duration of the storm, getting updates from different agencies around the city, and the agency turned 76 public schools around the city into evacuation shelters.

Sandy also forced the New York City Department of Homeless Services to relocate nine homeless shelters and one intake center, transporting more than 1,000 people out of the evacuation zone. Single adults were sent to the Bedford-Atlantic Armory in Brooklyn, while families were sent to El Camino in Queens.

According to the city comptroller's office, the city has approved the purchasing of up to $16 million in emergency storm supplies.

During a morning briefing at the World Trade Center, Governor Cuomo announced officials are keeping a close eye on the storm's threat, mainly surges in and around the lowest lying areas of the city.

Officials say they are also concerned about the World Trade Center site, but the governor said he believes they are prepared at the site.

Cuomo says he has spoken with President Barack Obama and thanked him for the federal support and has called up an additional 1,000 National Guardsmen.

Speaking from the White House, President Obama echoed both the mayor and governor's calls for people to take storm seriously and follow the instructions of local officials.

The president also said he anticipates lots of power outages and transportation backlogs once the storm passes through.

Con Ed has several reminders for customers on how to stay safe:

- If you see downed electrical wires, do not go near them or touch them with any object.
Always assume any wire is electrified.

- If your power does go out, turn off your appliances so the circuits don't get overloaded when the power comes back on.

- Double-check your flashlights and radios and make sure you know where they are and where your spare batteries are.

ARGENTINE: DES PLUIES DILUVIENNES CAUSES DES INONDATIONS DANS LA RÉGION DE BUENOS AIRES : 2 MORTS

mardi 30 octobre 2012



Des pluies diluviennes ont semé le chaos à Buenos Aires (Argentine) et dans sa banlieue, où deux personnes ont trouvé la mort, alors que les coupures d'électricité se multipliaient et les transports en commun étaient fortement perturbés, ont annoncé les autorités. En six heures, de 03H00 à 09H00 locales, il a plu 87,4 mm, selon le Service météorologique national (SMN).

Un homme de 65 ans s'est noyé en tentant de récupérer son poste de télévision dans sa maison inondée après la crue d'un ruisseau dans la banlieue de Isidro Casanova, à 30 kilomètres à l'ouest de la capitale. L'homme a tenté de sauver le poste de télévision, mais il est tombé, a été coincé par un meuble et s'est noyé.

Dans le disctrict de Lanus, dans le sud de l'agglomération de Buenos Aires, une femme est morte électrocutée.

De nombreuses avenues de la capitale et plusieurs voies rapides menant au centre-ville ont été inondées, certains véhicules se trouvant bloqués et d'autres emportés par les eaux.
Cinq des sept lignes de métro de la capitale, ainsi que plusieurs liaisons ferroviaires avec la banlieue, ont interrompu leur service pendant plusieurs heures. L'eau s'est par endroits engouffrée dans les bouches de métro, allant jusqu'à inonder certaines voies.

Plusieurs pannes ont frappé le système de signalisation routière, contribuant à l'impression de chaos dans cette agglomération de 14 millions d'habitants.

A Lomas de Zamora (banlieue sud), une femme enceinte ne pouvant quitter son domicile a dû accoucher sur place, avec l'aide des pompiers, selon les médias locaux. Ces derniers ont également rapporté que dans la banlieue de Quilmes (sud), une vingtaine de personnes avaient dû être évacuées à cause des inondations.

 NOR'EASTER POSSIBLE ALONG EAST COAST NEXT WEEK, BUT NOT AS SEVERE AS SANDY

By Miguel Llanos, NBC News

A nor'easter winter storm could hit the Mid-Atlantic and New England next week, the National Weather Service warned, but said the impact would be nowhere near as devastating as Superstorm Sandy.

Follow @NBCNewsUS

The storm may affect the regions anywhere between "Election Day (Tuesday) into next Thursday," the service's prediction center said in a statement Thursday afternoon.
"Increasing winds along coastal New England and coastal Mid-Atlantic states Tuesday onward may lead to some coastal flooding and beach erosion," it added.


In a statement earlier Thursday, the center said "it should be noted that this system is expected to be much weaker than Hurricane Sandy and produce impacts much less extreme and mainly away from the region most strongly impacted by Sandy."

The Weather Channel echoed that scenario.

"At this time it looks as though coastal impacts would be farther north along the New England coast than we saw with Sandy," wrote weather.com winter weather expert Tom Niziol. "Snowfall would be confined to northern New England. Also, this system will not be anywhere as impactful as Sandy. That being said, it is much too early to discuss details and we will need to keep a close eye on future forecasts to fine tune the evolution of this system."

 HEAR SAY ABOUT THE EAST COAST (self.conspiracy)


soumis il y a 27 jours par listensilent

About 2 weeks ago my mom called me to see if I had a bug out plan, which is interesting because we have never talked about anything like this. We have discussed politics, religion and various other issues, but nothing along the lines of "What do we do if the shit hits the fan?"

Her reasoning behind this is that her best friend of 37 years called her and said that her daughter and son-in-law were called into a private meeting on base regarding a probable evacuation scenario of the East Coast. (Son-in-law is in the Special Forces, apparently high up. I think the base was Ft. McPhearson in Georgia).

From what she said, the daughter and SIL where brought in and made to sign a non-disclosure agreement saying they would tell no one, under the penalty of treason, what they were told during the meeting. They were told that in 4-6 weeks (this was around 9/20) the East Coast would experience some type of disaster that would cause it to be under water. They were also told to make a go bag and be prepared to leave at a moments notice.

That is about all I have. This does come from someone I trust, and someone who trusts her daughter and son-in-law. I don't see any reason for them to make it up or freak out over a routine or drill. From what my moms friend says the military does not do these types of drills without warning everyone that it is just a drill. She has been married to a military man for 20 years.

On a seperate note, one of my best friends brother who is in the Special Forces went AWOL about 2 weeks ago. Went home to see his family in Texas then disappeared.

So that's about it. Has anyone heard anything along these lines? I have read that the east coast is in for one hell of a winter, but that's all I have heard.
Thoughts?

EAST COAST MAY FACE NEW NOR'EASTER WHILE RECOVERING FROM SUPERSTORM SANDY

CBS/AP/ November 2, 2012, 2:25 AM

WASHINGTON Another messy — and wintry — storm may cause post-Election Day problems for an already weather-weary East Coast, forecasters say.

But meteorologists add that it's six days out, so that's rather early to get too worried. The forecast could change before it hits late next week.

The National Weather Service's forecast center in College Park, Md., which watches winter storms, put out a long-range notice Thursday saying a nor'easter was possible for mid-Atlantic and New England states by Election Day through next Thursday.


Forecaster Bruce Sullivan said it wouldn't be as bad as Superstorm Sandy and isn't tropical. But it could include snow in interior New England and New York, beach erosion and high winds for areas hit by Sandy and moderate or heavier rainfall. Winds could be about 30 to 40 mph.

"I wouldn't get too alarmed yet," Sullivan said. "But it's something we're going to be watching over the next few days and fine-tuning. Anything that could hamper clean-up efforts is something that could be watched."

Meanwhile, widespread power outages and subway shutdowns may wind up making Sandy the second most expensive storm in U.S. history, according to the forecasting firm Eqecat. That would rank it right behind Hurricane Katrina.

In 16 states and Washington, D.C., 52,000 homeowners have filed insurance claims, including nearly 10,000 in New Jersey, CBS News reports.

The same European computer model that first noticed and correctly called Sandy a week in advance has forecast this potential nor'easter to come along the East Coast and then hit, Sullivan said. Another computer model also said the same thing, but then lessened that chance, he said.

Unlike Sandy, this doesn't have a tropical component. This would be a normal wet storm coming through land in the Southeast U.S. and going into the water, combining with cold air coming south from the Great Lakes and then curving back into the mid-Atlantic, Sullivan said.

The same high pressure system that blocked then-Hurricane Sandy from heading north and east out to sea like most tropical systems is likely to be part of the steering system that would take this storm inland to the same area Sandy struck, said Jeff Masters, meteorology director for the private service Weather Underground.

The fact that it's six days out means "there's room for optimism," Masters said, but he added: "From what I'm Iooking at, there's a concern."

SANDY A FAIT AU MOINS 98 MORT TANDIS QUE LES BESOINS AUGMENTENT

| Radio-Canada avec Reuters


VIDEO : http://www.radio-canada.ca/widgets/mediaconsole/medianet/6472618/?seektime=…
Sandy : 98 morts

Quatre jours après le passage de l'ouragan Sandy, sur la côte est américaine, le bilan des victimes continue de s'alourdir au fur et à mesure qu'on constate l'ampleur des dégâts.


On rapporte maintenant 98 morts, dont 40 dans la seule ville de New York. Le bilan augmente rapidement en raison de la découverte de corps dans les ruines et les maisons au fur et à mesure que les opérations de nettoyage se poursuivent.


Staten Island, au sud de Manhattan, a été très sévèrement touchée par l'ouragan. C'est d'ailleurs dans ce secteur que la moitié des morts répertoriées à New York se sont produites.

La majeure partie de ces personnes ont été noyées par des vagues qui ont déferlé sur les zones habitées.

En ce qui a trait à l'électricité, 4,5 millions de foyers sont toujours privés de courant dans l'est des États-Unis, dont au moins 650 000 dans la ville de New York.

Les pénuries d'eau et de nourriture s'installent

Distribution de denrées alimentaires dans un quartier de New York.


Ces pannes d'électricité entraînent d'autres pénuries importantes à New York, notamment d'essence, d'eau potable, de nourriture et de matériel d'urgence. Les commerces et les épiceries sont vides dans plusieurs secteurs de la métropole américaine.

Des files de voitures de plus d'un kilomètre de long s'étirent devant les quelques stations de service encore ouvertes à New York. Pour faire le plein d'essence, les automobilistes doivent parfois parcourir jusqu'à 70 kilomètres hors de la ville.

Ironiquement, des millions de litres d'essence attendent d'être livrés. Selon le département américain de l'Énergie, 13 des 33 centres de stockage d'essence de la région sont toujours fermés, faute d'électricité, ainsi que quelques sections des deux plus importants gazoducs.

La nourriture vient aussi à manquer dans les centaines de milliers de foyers privés d'électricité depuis 5 jours. Pour éviter que la crise ne s'aggrave, le maire de New York, Michael Bloomberg, a annoncé la distribution prochaine d'un million de repas chauds et d'eau potable aux citoyens dans le besoin.

La situation est particulièrement critique pour beaucoup de personnes à mobilité réduite et personnes âgées coincées depuis une semaine sans ascenseur dans des immeubles d'habitation de plusieurs dizaines d'étages.

Pendant ce temps, les monteurs de lignes travaillent sans arrêt pour reconstruire le réseau et rétablir le courant sur la côte est des États-Unis.

Mais les délais s'annoncent plus longs que prévu. Certains abonnés pourraient devoir attendre encore un mois avant d'être rebranchés.

Pillage et criminalité

Les pannes d'électricité et le manque de présence policière dans certains secteurs de New York provoquent aussi une augmentation de la criminalité dans la ville.

Selon Reuters, une quinzaine de personnes ont déjà été inculpées dans le Queens pour pillage, et un homme a été accusé jeudi d'avoir menacé avec une arme un autre conducteur qui tentait de couper une file d'attente pour se procurer de l'essence.

Selon la firme spécialisée dans l'évaluation des catastrophes Eqecat, Sandy pourrait causer de 20 milliards de dollars de dommages assurés jusqu'à 50 milliards de dollars de pertes économiques, ce qui représente le double de sa précédente évaluation.

Si ces prévisions s'avèrent justes, Sandy deviendrait alors la quatrième catastrophe la plus coûteuse aux États-Unis, selon l'Institut d'information de l'assurance.

New Yorkers have resorted to digging through filthy dumpsters for food ahead of their fourth night without power and, for many, without water.

Shocking images captured groups of residents sifting through garbage outside a Key Food supermarket at Avenue A and East 4th Street in the East Village yesterday.

Families, elderly people and young residents were seen climbing into the dumpster hunting for whatever they could find to eat.

According to NBC New York, whose crews came across the shocking scene, the local supermarket had discarded piles of food that had gone bad after Hurricane Sandy shut down power in the area on Monday.

The dumpster divers in the East Village pried open the overflowing bin before climbing inside to pick through the garbage for something to eat or take home to their families.

Brace for round two: Powerful nor’easter winter storm bears down on East Coast still reeling from Sandy’s devastation

The Lower East Side and East Village neighborhoods have both been in darkness for days.

As the death toll passes 90 and continues to rise, thousands of apartments, bodegas and restaurants remained closed yesterday after they were flooded and left without power during the storm.

Some have been selling their wares for cash, as their credit card facilities are disabled while others were giving away perishables earlier in the week while they were still edible.

The desperate situation, which is seeing both neighborhoods appear more and more like a war zone, is expected to continue.

Hundreds of residents of downtown Manhattan are still living in shelters after Sandy left their buildings uninhabitable.

One shelter is allowing people to power up their phones to make calls to let friends and family members know how they are doing, although many are still unable to get a signal.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the city will send bottled water and ready-to-eat meals into the hardest-hit neighborhoods throughout the weekend, but some New Yorkers, dispirited after days without power, water and heat, decided to get out.

'It's dirty, and it's getting a little crazy down there,' said Michael Tomeo, who boarded a bus to Philadelphia with his four-year-old son. 'It just feels like you wouldn't want to be out at night. Everything's pitch dark. I'm tired of it, big-time.'

Rima Finzi-Strauss decided to take the bus to Washington, DC. When the power went out on Monday night in her apartment building on the Lower East Side, it also disabled the electric locks on the front door, she said.

'We had three guys sitting out in the lobby last night with candlelight, and very threatening folks were passing by in the pitch black,' she said. 'And everyone's leaving. That makes it worse.'

Rosemarie Zurlo said she planned to leave Manhattan for her sister's place in Brooklyn because her own apartment was freezing - but she was worried she wouldn't make it back.

'I don't have three people to put in my car,' she said.

'I've been stranded here for five days,' said Stuart Zager, who is from Brooklyn and was trying to get to his place in Delray Beach, Florida.

'I'm afraid to get on the Jersey Turnpike. On half a tank, I'll never make it.'

MUSLIM CLERICS SAY SANDY IS 'GOD'S WAY OF PUNISHING AMERICA FOR ANTI-MUHAMMED FILM'

By Associated Press Reporter

PUBLISHED:01:50 GMT, 2 November 2012| UPDATED:01:59 GMT, 2 November 2012
 
Some anti-American Muslim clerics have cast the deadly Superstorm Sandy as divine punishment for 'Innocence of Muslims,' a film mocking the Prophet Muhammad or for other perceived ills of American society.

The remarks by some on the fringe brought a backlash from other Muslims who said it was wrong to relish the suff1ering of others.

In Egypt, one radical cleric described the hurricane as revenge from God for the crude, anti-Islam film made in the U.S. that sparked waves of protests in the Muslim world in September.


Radical cleric Wagdi Ghoneim described Hurricane Sandy as revenge from God for the crude, anti-Islam film made in the U.S. that sparked waves of protests in the Muslim world in September

'Some people wonder about the hurricane in America and its causes,' Egyptian hardline cleric Wagdi Ghoneim tweeted twice this week in the aftermath of the storm.

'In my opinion, it is revenge from God for the beloved prophet,' he added, alluding to the film.

Some praised the post, but others condemned it.
 More...
 
'God, shake the earth under their feet,' read one comment, prompting the response: 'We have brothers and friends in America - I don't wish them any harm.'

Another Twitter response to Ghoneim compared Sandy to a divine wind sent to destroy a sinful nation and strike at the seat of the United Nations in New York.

'We ask God to destroy the U.N. building for its injustice, corruption, tyranny ... with Sandy.'


Wagdi Ghoneim said Hurricane Sandy, pictured here in a satellite image provided by NASA, was God's way pf punishing the U.S.


God's retribution? Hurricane Sandy left 111 homes in Breezy Point, Queens, reduced to ash after an uncontrollable blaze spread across the neighbourhood



Human tragedy: Neighbours Linda Strong (left) and Lucille Dwyer (Right) console each other as the survey the wreckage of their homes which were burned down in the wake of the superstorm

But this was followed by a stream of outrage.

'This hashtag doesn't represent Muslims but represents a terrorist. We all ask God to help and save Americans,' read one post.

In Saudi Arabia, prominent cleric Salman al-Audah said the storm, which killed more than 140 people, was a wake-up call for Americans to convert to Islam.

Reactions to the hurricane in the kingdom prompted Grand Mufti Abdel Aziz Al Sheik to warn in an interview that rejoicing over plight of the suffering runs contrary to Islam, adding that Muslims were among the victims.

'It is not legitimate and it is not proper,' he told pan-Arab Al-Hayat daily on Thursday.

In Iran, prominent clerics often avoid drawing parallels between natural disasters and divine intervention because their own country has faced devastating earthquakes, such as one in 2003 that killed 26,000 when it hit the ancient city of Bam.

On Wednesday, the Iranian Red Crescent said aid workers were ready to fly to New York to help with recovery efforts, the semiofficial Fars news agency reported.

Mahmud Mozaffar, head of Red Crescent's rescue operations, said the Iranian groups had 'ample experience' in dealing with natural catastrophes.

This image shows HAARP is in full blast and has been for 16 hours. We saw this start and a coorelation of the longwave building down into Southern California is that of a targeted Earthquake.

If these signals continue we can expected a size-able Earthquake on the Western Coastal States. More from HAARPStatus.com. One look at the Induction Magnetometer down below from Galkuna, Alaska shows that HAARP is heating up again. A great short video about HAARP’s ability to cause earthquakes and more for those who still haven’t figured out that our govt and others can cause hurricanes, earthquakes and other severe weather events.

CANADA - QUÉBEC : 600 PUITS DE GAZ DE SCHISTE SONT EN PHASE EXPLORATOIRE DANS LANAUDIÈRE




 Le Journal de Joliette

AVANT LES ÉLECTIONS
Mise à jour le lundi 4 octobre 2010 à 8 h 30 HAE



Pauline Marois, chef du PQ

Si elle était première ministre, Pauline Marois réclamerait pour l'État 50 % des richesses créées par l'industrie des gaz de schiste. Elle a fait cette déclaration lors du rassemblement des jeunes du PQ qui veulent promouvoir la souveraineté.

Si elle était élue première ministre du Québec, Pauline Marois exigerait que la moitié de la richesse créée par l'exploitation des gaz de schiste revienne à l'État.

En clôture du rassemblement des jeunes du Parti québécois, qui se tenait ce week-end à Victoriaville, la chef du PQ a expliqué que cette perception de droits pourrait prendre plusieurs formes. « Ça peut se faire par les droits sur les permis, par les redevances, par les impôts, ou en prenant une participation publique », a-t-elle indiqué.

Pauline Marois en a profité pour dénoncer la proximité qu'elle perçoit entre le gouvernement et l'industrie, ainsi que l'octroi « de permis d'exploration à rabais ».

LE PQ FERME DÉFINITIVEMENT LA PORTE À L'INDUSTRIE DU GAZ DE SCHISTE

Mise à jour le jeudi 20 septembre 2012 à 18 h 27 HAE

Moins de 24 h après son assermentation, la nouvelle ministre des Ressources naturelles, Martine Ouellet, a confirmé jeudi matin que le gouvernement de Pauline Marois imposerait un moratoire complet sur l'exploration et l'exploitation du gaz de schiste au Québec.

Le programme du Parti québécois évoquait déjà ce moratoire, précisant que le cadre réglementaire serait revu et que cette industrie ne pourrait aller de l'avant que dans un cadre sécuritaire.

Jeudi matin, Martine Ouellet a été plus catégorique. Elle a rejeté toute possibilité d'ouvrir la porte à l'industrie du gaz de schiste. La ministre a déclaré qu'elle ne voyait pas le jour où la technologie permettrait une exploitation sécuritaire.
« Notre position est très claire sur les gaz de schiste : un moratoire complet tant sur l'exploration que sur l'exploitation. » — Martine Ouellet, ministre des Ressources naturelles

  • Avons-nous besoin de cette énergie ?
  • Quels sont les dangers pour l’eau potable et pour la santé ?

CANADA - QUÉBEC : GAZ DE SCHISTE : LUCIEN BOUCHARD S'EN PREND AUX « BLOQUEUX »

J'aime bien démontrer l'hypocrisie qui caractérise tous ses tenants du Nouvel Ordre Mondial, et monsieur Bouchard est un de ceux-là. Ici, il nous dit : On va faire un petit tour en Pennsylvanie pour montrer des puits qui n’ont pas marché et pour dire que c’est affreux »,ironise M. Bouchard en parlant des pratiques des groupes environnementaux. « Mais regardons le portrait global, regardons les études. Ce ne sont pas des niaiseux les Américains [qui permettent l’exploitation du gaz de schiste]. Bon, je pourrais en dire long juste sur cette phrase mais le point que je veux apporter est que quand ce sont leurs projets qu'ils mettent en place, on entend souvent la phrase : tel ou tel projet a bien marché dans tel ou tel pays, pourquoi ne pas l'appliquer chez nous! Mais quand cela va contre leur "intérêts financiers", on est bien prêt à toutes les bassesses, en accusant le petit peuple de ne rien comprendre. Ce ne sont certes pas des niaiseux les Américains qui permettent cette exploitation comme le dit si bien Lucien Bouchard, ce traitre en cravate qui par le passé a été lui-même premier ministre du Parti Québécois. Ce sont des criminels, qui au nom du profit sont prêts à toutes les bassesses possibles, au détriment de la santé de milliers de personnes.

Lucien Bouchard s’en est pris aux « bloqueux », pour qui l’exploitation du gaz de schiste ne rencontrera jamais l’acceptabilité sociale nécessaire en vue d’appuyer son exploitation au Québec. L’ancien premier ministre a invité les Québécois à remettre en question leur opposition à l’exploitation de cette ressource, lors du discours de fermeture de la conférence de l’Association pétrolière et gazière du Québec (APGQ).

En marge de son discours, M. Bouchard a reconnu que l’industrie n’a pas pris en compte les sensibilités régionales avant de démarrer leurs activités. Il accuse cependant les opposants aux projets d’en avoir profité.

« C’était du bonbon pour les écologistes, déplore-t-il. C’était du bonbon : de partir avec ça pour ameuter l’opinion publique, et de faire peur à tout le monde. »

« On va faire un petit tour en Pennsylvanie pour montrer des puits qui n’ont pas marché et pour dire que c’est affreux », ironise M. Bouchard en parlant des pratiques des groupes environnementaux. « Mais regardons le portrait global, regardons les études. Ce ne sont pas des niaiseux les Américains [qui permettent l’exploitation du gaz de schiste].

Dans son discours, le ton de M. Bouchard était plus compréhensif envers les écologistes. Il a dit comprendre leur crainte de voir l’exploitation d’une énergie fossile jugée moins dommageable pour l’environnement ralentir l’urgence de lutter contre la pollution climatique. L’utilisation du gaz naturel ne remettrait pas en cause l’importance de réduire les émissions de gaz à effet de serre, a-t-il rassuré.

Selon celui qui est devenu la voix de l’industrie, les Québécois auraient intérêt à exploiter cette ressource dans l’attente de la découverte d’énergie plus verte, à un prix raisonnable.

MISERY FOR 2.5 MILLION STILL WITHOUT POWER AFTER SIX DAYS AS LAWLESSNESS AND FEAR TAKE OVER NEW YORK'S OUTER BOROUGHS
  • Residents claim they are the 'forgotten victims' of Sandy
  • Also say that lack of power and law enforcement means more looting and violent crime
  • Those in stricken areas stockpiling weapons like kitchen knives, machetes, and bats to protect themselves
  • Coney Island residents say they are forced to 'scavenge for food like animals'
  • Power unlikely to be returned to Brooklyn, Queen's and Staten Island until sometime next week

PUBLISHED:14:38 GMT, 3 November 2012| UPDATED:11:23 GMT, 4 November 2012

Almost one week after superstorm Sandy struck the East Coast with its ferocious force, power was still out to some 2.5 million customers due to damages, down from 3.5 million on Friday, the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Electricity Delivery & Energy Reliability claimed.

The state with the largestnumber of outages by far is still New Jersey with 32 percent of customerswithout power, it said it a report.

And as the lights begin to flicker on in Lower Manhattan, nine percent of customers across the state of New York still do not have power, followed by seven percent in Connecticut.

Aid: A boy watches as members of the U.S. Army National Guard unload food and supplies in the Rockaways section of Queens

This comes as residents of the Rockaways in Queens continued to struggle without power, heat or food for a sixth day as their neighborhood slowly descended into chaos.

'It's chaos; it's pandemonium out here,' said Chris Damon, who had been waiting for 3.5 hours at the site and had circled the block five times. "It seems like nobody has any answers."

Added Damon: 'I feel like a victim of Hurricane Katrina. I never thought it could happen here in New York, but it's happened.'

With little police presence on the storm-ravaged streets, many residents of the peninsula have been forced to take their protection into their own hands, arming themselves with guns, baseball bats and even bows and arrows to ward off thugs seeking to loot their homes.

VIDEO: Anger and resentment overcontinued lack of power and gas...


It has been reported that crooks have been disguising themselves as Long Island Power Authority workers and coming by homes on the peninsula in the middle of the night while real utility workers were nowhere to be found.
'We booby-trapped our door and keep a baseball bat beside our bed,' Danielle Harris, 34, told the  New York Daily News

The woman added that she has been hearing gunshots likely fired in the nearby housing project for three nights in a row.
Meanwhile, local surfer Keone Singlehurst said that he stockpiled knives, a machete and a bow and arrow.

‘I would take a looter with a boa if a felt threatened I would definitely use it,' he said. 'It's like the wild west. A borderline lawless situation.'
City Councilman James Sanders said he fears that things are going to get even worse.
'We have an explosive mix here,' he said. 'People will take matters into their own hands.'

Sanders has directed much of his anger and frustration at LIPA, calling on the City Council to investigate the utility for ignoring the Rockaways for so long.

‘LIPA has failed the people of the Rockaways,’ he said. ‘It’s a question of class... serving the richer areas of Long Island and ignoring the Rockaways.

'After sunset everyone locks their doors,' he said. 'They're trying to find whatever weapons they can find. Some people are even using bows and arrows.'

Along with mounting safety concerns, homeowners in the beachfront community hit hard by Hurricane Sandy that has left 109 dead continued to face hunger, complaining that federal officials have left them to fend for themselves.

'Rockaways always get left over,' said Meyer. 'It's treated like a marginalized land in the city.'

Most of the grocery stores in the area have not reopened since the storm, and the neighborhood has been left cut off from the rest of the city, with no trains or even shuttle buses servicing the residents.

Stranded neighbors largely have been relying on volunteers delivering food, water and other basic necessities while the Red Cross and FEMA were still nowhere in sight.
'We can't exist,' said Ann Manning. 'We can't buy milk. We can't buy cereal. We can't buy nothing.'

As they scrape round desperately for food and are forced to use their gas hobs to keep warm, many claim they are the forgotten victims of Sandy.

The Borough President of Staten Island called the reaction of Red Cross - or lack thereof - to the devastation caused by Sandy an 'absolute disgrace'.

ANARCHY IN STATEN ISLAND 

Sons of Anarchy star – and Staten Island native — Theo Rossi told InsideTV about the trials of his old community.

He’s remained there ever since the hurricane struck and gave his first-hand account of the devastation.

'It’s so bad here, a lot worse than how its being portrayed by the media.,' he said.

'They are finding bodies left and right, elderly people who don’t even watch the news or who knew the storm was coming. I was just with one of my best friends from high school and college, and his house is completely gone.

'I know this island in and out. To see it completely destroyed is bizarre.


'I’ve been trying to hit every shelter on Staten Island to do what I can, just to make people smile. A lot of people know me and know I’m from here.'

'My advice to the people of Staten Island is do not donate to the American Red Cross,' said Mr Molinaro. 'Let them get their money elsewhere.'
'It's an absolute disgrace in a county that has always responded to disasters all over the world,' he said.

'Katrina - we sent them down four trailer loads of food, water and one trailer load of generators. No one's responding to us.'
Residents are pleading for help as they fear their devastated neighborhoods are being ignored.

In a Coney Island apartment block, where tenants huddle together in one room and human waste spills out of the toilet, tenant Jeffery Francis despairs that help is not getting to Brooklyn faster.

We are scavenging for food like animals,’ he told the New York Daily News. 'We are in a crisis and no one will help us. Look at us. We are misery. Everyone cares about Manhattan. No one is looking out for us. Nothing.

At another apartment where power is still out, residents are out of food and praying for help. Albert Miller, 58, told the paper: ‘One person found a sandwich and we split it four ways.

While power is likely to be returned to Manhattan’s East and West Villages, Financial District, Chelsea, Chinatown and the Lower East Side by the weekend, according to the power company Con Edison outages in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island are not expected to be repaired for another week.

Across Staten Island residents are also increasingly frustrated they are being passed over while other parts of New York and New Jersey receive aid and attention.

Residents are furious the island is being prepared as the starting line for Sunday’s marathon, while hundreds are left hungry and wit...

One resident there told CBS station WCBS, ‘We're gonna die! We're gonna freeze! We've got 90-year-old people!’hout homes in the wake of the superstorm.

Natvel Pritchard, of Staten Island, told CBS News, ‘Though people don't talk about Staten Island much, people are here, a lot of people are hurting, so it's upsetting.

One gated community at the tip of the island, Seagate, was particularly badly hit, with some houses entirely washed away or flattened.

For power companies, the scale of the destruction was unmatched - more widespread than any blizzard or ice storm and worse than the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

'It's unprecedented: fallen trees, debris, the roads, water, snow. It's a little bit of everything,' said Brian Wolff, senior vice president of the Edison Electric Institute, a group that lobbies for utilities.
Initially, about 60 million people were without power in 8.2 million homes and businesses.

By Wednesday night, that number had fallen to roughly 44 million people in 6 million households and businesses and today around 3.6 million are without power.

James Molinaro went as far as to tell people not to donate to the charity because when push came to shove, the group just didn't deliver when Staten Island needed them the most.

'My advice to the people of Staten Island is do not donate to the American Red Cross,' said Mr Molinaro. 'Let them get their money elsewhere.

'It's an absolute disgrace in a county that has always responded to disasters all over the world,' he said.

'Katrina - we sent them down four trailer loads of food, water and one trailer load of generators. No one's responding to us.'

‘Of the 22 people across New York City that have perished, 15 of them died in Staten Island. The borough is still underwater.

Residents are pleading for help as they fear their devastated neighbourhoods are being ignored.

In a Coney Island apartment block, where tenants huddle together in one room and human waste spills out of the toilet, tenant Jeffery Francis despairs that help is not getting to Brooklyn faster.

‘We are scavenging for food like animals,’ he told the New York Daily News. 'We are in a crisis and no one will help us. Look at us. We are misery. Everyone cares about Manhattan. No one is looking out for us. Nothing.

At another apartment where power is still out, residents are out of food and praying for help. Albert Miller, 58, told the paper: ‘One person found a sandwich and we split it four ways.

While power is likely to be returned to Manhattan’s East and West Villages, Financial District, Chelsea, Chinatown and the Lower East Side by the weekend, according to the power company Con Edison outages in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island are not expected to be repaired for another week.

Across Staten Island residents are also increasingly frustrated they are being passed over while other parts of New York and New Jersey receive aid and attention.

Residents are furious the island is being prepared as the starting line for Sunday’s marathon, while hundreds are left hungry and without homes in the wake of the superstorm.

One resident there told CBS station WCBS, ‘We're gonna die! We're gonna freeze! We've got 90-year-old people!

Natvel Pritchard, of Staten Island, told CBS News, ‘Though people don't talk about Staten Island much, people are here, a lot of people are hurting, so it's upsetting.

  Homes across Brooklyn and Coney Island are some of the worst hit in the wake of the superstorm.

Many houses shattered into piles of bricks and splintered planks at Coney Island, while others stand waterlogged and abandoned.

One gated community at the tip of the island, Seagate, was particularly badly hit, with some houses entirely washed away or flattened.

Across the bridge in Manhattan, many neighbourhoods are still in darkness and residents have resorted to digging through filthy dumpsters for food.

The Lower East Side and East Village neighbourhoods have both been in darkness for days.

Shocking images captured groups of residents sifting through garbage outside a Key Food supermarket in the East Village yesterday.

For power companies, the scale of the destruction was unmatched - more widespread than any blizzard or ice storm and worse than the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

'It's unprecedented: fallen trees, debris, the roads, water, snow. It's a little bit of everything,' said Brian Wolff, senior vice president of the Edison Electric Institute, a group that lobbies for utilities.

Initially, about 60 million people were without power in 8.2 million homes and businesses.

By Wednesday night, that number had fallen to roughly 44 million people in 6 million households and businesses and today around 3.8 million are without power.

'NO RED TAPE'? NEW JERSEY TURNS AWAY NON-UNION RELIEF CREWS









How desperate is hurricane-ravaged New Jersey? Not desperate enough to suspend a union monopoly that keeps the state in the bottom ten states for economic competitiveness (and #48 for business friendliness). Relief crews from Alabama who were specifically called to New Jersey found themselves diverted to Long Island, NY after they arrived because they use non-union labor. Alabama is a right-to-work state.

WAFF-TV of Hunstville, AL reports:
yiv1627057421webkit-indent-blockquote a écrit:
Crews from Huntsville, as well as 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.... Understandably, Moore said they're frustrated being told "thanks, but no thanks."



With so much at stake--and lives still in danger--it would seem logical to tell special interests to step aside.

On Wednesday, while visiting cleanup efforts in New Jersey in the company of Gov. Chris Christie, President Barack Obama vowed: "We are not going to tolerate red tape, we are not going to tolerate bureaucracy."

Unless, of course, that red tape is enforced by Obama's union cronies. Then stranded residents have to wait.

Here is a photo of the devastation of the town the crews were to have assisted--Seaside Heights, NJ:

UN CYCLONE FAIT 60.000 DÉPLACÉS ET 22 MORTS EN INDE
lundi 5 novembre 2012

© afp.
Des pluies torrentielles dans le sud de l’Inde dues au passage d’un cyclone mercredi ont fait au moins 22 morts et déplacé 60.000 villageois, a-t-on appris lundi auprès des autorités locales.
Les précipitations dues au cyclone Nilam qui a frappé les côtes méridionales de l’Inde ont inondé des centaines de villages, contraignant leurs habitants à trouver refuge dans des hébergements de fortune, a indiqué Karikal Valaven, un responsable du gouvernement local de l’Andhra Pradesh, en charge des opérations de secours.

« Au moins 22 personnes sont mortes et des milliers d’autres ont perdu leur maison. Les pluies ont endommagé toutes les cultures », a-t-il détaillé. A bord de canots pneumatiques, les secours ont aidé les habitants à trouver refuge dans des zones surélevées et près de 100 hébergements d’urgence ont été ouverts dans l’ensemble de l’Andhra Pradesh.
« Nous allons devoir dépendre du gouvernement pour la nourriture pendant un an », a déploré sur une chaîne de télévision locale Arku Rajaipa, un paysan du district de Guntur, parmi les plus affectés.
Le cyclone Nilam a frappé mercredi soir à 50 km au sud de Chennai (anciennement Madras), dans l’Etat du Tamil Nadu, avant de pénétrer à l’intérieur des terres. Le département météorologique a mis en garde contre de nouvelles précipitations dans les prochains jours.

NIGERIA FLOODS DISPLACE 2.1 MILLION

363 people died over months of flooding across the West African nation and 2.1 million others were displaced.


Two million people in Nigeria are victims of the worst flood in 50 years.



The agency made the announcement Monday as Nigeria’s annual rainy season is coming to an end. The report covered July through the end of October.

The agency said Adamawa and Kogi state suffered the worst casualties, with more than 18,000 people being injured.

Heavy seasonal rains typically cause flooding across Nigeria, as drainage can be poor in areas and people live in floodplains. However, the flooding this year was exacerbated by heavier than normal rains that cause officials in both Nigeria and neighboring Cameroon to open strained dams.

My comment:

People who do not read their Bible will not understand what is going on.

Jesus has told all men in advance, what will take place just before His second coming.

Citation:
Matthew 24:7-8
Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.
Matthew 24:21-22

For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again.If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.



You need to pay attention. If you have rejected to accept Jesus as Lord and God, you are lost. Lost for eternity. You will have to spend forever more in a hot place where there is no exit.

Repent, or perish.

SOME EVACS ORDERED AHEAD OF PREDICTED NE STORM

CBS/AP/ November 6, 2012, 5:32 AM

NEW YORK From trying to figure out where people will live, to how they will be able to vote, how to shorten lines for gasoline, and when all the lights will finally come on, government officials were still facing multiple fronts in the efforts to recover from superstorm Sandy early Tuesday. All that, and there's another storm coming.

A nor'easter packing heavy rain and gusts of 50 to 60 mph was headed for the area Wednesday, threatening more flooding and power outages that could undo some of the repairs made in the past few days.


Seaside Heights: Now and then

Authorities in Brick Township, N.J. have issued a mandatory evacuation order for everyone who lives in the low-lying, waterfront areas of the town due to the predicted nor'easter, reports CBS station KYW-TV, in Philadelphia. Anyone in the area of the town that's prone to flooding or storm surge must evacuate by Tuesday at 6 p.m., the order says. Sandy ravaged the township as it moved through last week.

Where to house potentially tens of thousands of people left homeless by the storm is the most pressing crisis, as cold weather sets in.

"It's not going to be a simple task. It's going to be one of the most complicated and long-term recovery efforts in U.S. history," said Mark Merritt, president of Witt Associates, a Washington crisis management consulting firm founded by former Federal Emergency Management Agency Director James Lee Witt.

FEMA said it has already dispensed close to $200 million in emergency housing assistance and has put up 34,000 people in New York and New Jersey in hotels and motels. But local, state and federal officials have yet to lay out a specific, comprehensive plan for finding them long-term places to live. And given the scarcity and high cost of housing there and the lack of open space, it could prove a monumental undertaking.



Before-and-after views of Sandy destruction

Sandy killed more 100 people in 10 states but vented the worst of its fury on New Jersey and New York. A week after the storm slammed the mid-Atlantic and the Northeast, more than 1 million homes and businesses remained without power.

With the temperatures dropping into the 30s overnight, people in dark, unheated homes were urged to go to overnight shelters or daytime warming centers.

Because so many people have been displaced by the storm, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order allowing people to vote in Tuesday's statewide and presidential elections at any polling place in the state. New Jersey had already taken similar measures.

"Just because you are displaced doesn't mean you are disenfranchised," Cuomo said. "Compared to what we have had to deal with in the past week, this will be a walk in the park when it comes to voting."

As for long-term housing for the homeless, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Monday that the government is looking into using everything from hotels and motels to FEMA trailers and prefab homes.

"Given the extent of need, no option is off the table," she said. "All of them will have some place in this puzzle."

Officials have yet to even establish the magnitude of the problem.

In New York City, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday that officials are going door-to-door in hard-hit areas to assess the need for shelter. He said the worst-case estimate is 40,000 people, half of them in public housing.

But he said as many as 20,000 will probably get their heat and power back within a few days. Ultimately, the number of people who need longer-term housing could be under 10,000, he said.

In New Jersey, state officials said they are still trying to figure out how many people will need long-term housing. At least 4,000 residents were in New Jersey shelters.

NJ gas station owner pumping gas like it's 1948


Meanwhile, relief from long lines and higher gas prices may be in the offing for drivers in Sandy-damaged areas.

A week after Superstorm Sandy hit the area, the price of gas had increased 10 cents per gallon or more in the New York City area and in hard-hit parts of New Jersey. Images of long lines of cars and interviews with frustrated drivers have become staples in news coverage of the storm's aftermath.

But across the U.S. the price of gasoline was falling — fast. It fell 7 cents this past week and has declined almost 9 percent in a month to $3.47 per gallon. The national average should be only slightly higher this Election Day than a year ago. That's due to a dramatic drop in the price of wholesale gasoline and low demand from a combination of cautious consumers and improving automotive fuel efficiency.

Prices should fall further in the coming weeks, according to Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at the Oil Price Information Service. Even people in the Northeast now standing or sitting in long lines for gas -- what he calls the "hysteria" in New York and New Jersey -- should catch a break.

On Sunday, the Energy Department estimated that 27 percent of all gas stations across New York City, Long Island and New Jersey did not have gas to sell. That's down from 38 percent on Saturday. The situation improved as more stations regained electricity and extra supplies were brought in. State and local officials working with the U.S. Coast Guard started this weekend to off-load 28 million gallons of fuel from tankers — about what the metro area burns on a typical day.

Phillips 66, however, said late Monday that its refinery in Linden, N.J., won't resume normal operations for up to three weeks. But it said it has adequate supplies of fuel on hand and has taken steps to ensure fuel deliveries to its Linden terminal.

The Defense Department also set up mobile fuel stations around the New York metro area to distribute 12 million gallons of gasoline and 10 million gallons of diesel to run generators. The gas is free, and each person can take up to 10 gallons.

Those moves should begin to gradually lead the area back to normal. Then, Kloza said, New York area drivers will able to take advantage of the price relief those in the rest of the U.S. already see. For now, residents of Nassau Country on Long Island will pay about 14 cents more per gallon than a week ago while drivers in Bergen County in northeast New Jersey shell out about 13 cents more.

ARGENTINE : LES INONDATIONS RÉCENTES ONT INONDÉS 14 MILLIONS D'HECTARES DE TERRES AGRICOLES

Quatorze millions d'hectares de terres ont été touchés par les inondations dans les régions de Buenos Aires et de Santa Fe, la récolte de céréales est gravement menacée ont déclarés les dirigeants des organisations agricoles.

Les pluies récentes dans le centre du pays, principale région agricole , ont fait sortir les rivières de leurs lits, 11 millions d'hectares sont affectés dont la moitié sont totalement sous les eaux.

Dans la région de Santa Fe plus de trois millions d'hectares ont subit le même sort.

Le ministère de l'Agriculture argentin qui avait déclaré mi-Octobre que le pays s'engagait en 2013 vers une récolte record de cultures, avec des chiffres estimés à 28 millions de tonnes pour le maïs et 58 millions pour soja, et ce principalement destinés à l'exportation, est aujourd'hui devant une situation critique.

« Aujourd'hui, les récoltes sont menacées », a déclaré Carlos Garetto, président de la Confédération internationale des coopératives agricoles (Coninagro).
