Americans met “Sandy”

31 Oct

SandyThe head of New York City than in a sense summed up the first day of the coming storm.

Meeting oceanic elements and solid earth eastern U.S. general in American politics bore special eloquence. The more so because they suddenly got almost all the airtime on the channels that broadcast to find a sufficient number of kilowatts. Electricity, by the way, was the first, but, unfortunately, not the only scarce resource. In second place was the fuel for autonomous power. And then immediately see the difference in the tradition of meeting catastrophes in the United States and Russia. Consider (and not without reason) that the state and local government should be actively involved in helping the population, Russians are starting to acquire the means of individual life-support, but when faced with the elements. Therefore, only when a blackout, in Russia the demand for generators. In the U.S., where everyone learns from childhood rely primarily on themselves – in times of natural disasters increased demand for fuel for generators, which have long been available for many. Following a scarce resource in the eastern U.S. in the coming hours will be (and probably already has somewhere) drinking water. Then comes the cold Canadian air front, and will need to save those who have traditionally existed on the streets and in the basement of New York, now submerged.

What is its appeal to ordinary Americans “unquestioningly follow the directions and recommendations of local officials and execute their orders without question, why it is needed and is not thinking about expediency.” In moments of danger not to the ceremony.

Transportation network of New York ceased to function. “Over the 108 year history of the city subway did not experience such a disaster” – admitted its leader Joseph Lyoto. Stood up (and in some cases, drowned) ground transportation. Underground parking lots are covered by water and the thousands of cars were there. Obama announced the eastern states of New York and New Jersey a disaster area the federal level, which primarily allows local residents to rely on federal aid and federal as compensation for the loss. No casualties, unfortunately, has not done. Most were killed by the trunks of fallen trees, and in the fire that occurred after a series of short circuits in residential areas. The exact death toll is impossible to imagine, as rescue operations are conducted over large areas and, as he said New Jersey Governor Chris Christie – “Hundreds of people saved and constantly saving more and more.” As for the damage to the most affected by the disaster state, Christie has used the term “not counted.”

Still, the fact that some Americans met “Sandy” running naked through the streets, dressing up in costumes and horses spreading in social networks feykovye photos “horrors of New York,” says that to the test “doomsday” the country is ready .
