Default Hurricane Sandy

The pictures, videos, and stories coming in from New York and New Jersey are just heartbreaking. Those people are suffering terribly.

Agree. Seeing a disaster such as this occur in a large urban setting such as New York and New Jersey demonstrates the reality what other countries live with regularily. Indonesia has suffered earthquakes, Sunamis, mud slide, and flooding for many years now. Repeatedly wiping out poor ppls' lively hoods. Haiti is another country is which hurricaines has devastated then Cholera etc makes its presence known, killing off thousands more. What about the Sudan?? No need to say more. New Orleons is still fresh in my mind. Some are still suffering years later from that storm/flooding.

What Sandy has shown is how quickly a large urban area can be seriously impacted. No fresh water, loss of heat, shortage of gasoiline and now food in some places, difficulty in travelling from one place to the other, and so on and so on. How many of us wld have thought such a storm cld take down New York and lay flat New Jersey? The subsequent financial fallout will continue to impact these cities for years to come.

My deepest sympathies for all concerned.

Here in CT, many people have voiced their opinions and scolded those complaining of their loss of power for a week or more. Not taking into consideration, only but a few miles over, there's people with no homes to go back to.

It's easy to look at only what your eyes see vs the big picture.

Storm hit hard. Clean up is in full effect.

I'm one of the people affected. It's the 8th day and I still do not have power at home. I am thankful for two Honda product that made my days and nights easier. Honda EU2000i for powering my home and keeping my family warm in the freezing temp. And the CBR250r that gets me to work. Both are fuel sippers thus helpful in avoiding the long gas lines. Thanks Honda for making great products!
