so with all the news on the election not
let’s not forget that the east coast still struggling at in the wake of
hurricane cindy one area that was hit as the strategies were were colleges on the east coast we’ve got an update on
out what they’re doing to try to get back up and running after the hurricane
on and we should also give you a spoiler that there is expected to be of more
storms coming in so more bad news for the east coast uh… but what interesting thing is that in some of these areas like particularly
in princeton uh… the power at the university is up
and running but in the surrounding communities it’s
not so you’re actually better off if your stand because you’ve got food hot
water and electricity so princeton fully restore their power
to clear the way that uh… falling trees from all the walkways superb horny guy get that done
immediately uh… but forty percent of people in
princeton new jersey still don’t have time right and software uh… so we’ve got a a little quote here
from other daily prince tony they say that awhile undergraduate students in
jordy rin tin food and warm sheltered only experienced a brief i’ve made a
power outage undertones because the general power
outages closed roads in gas supply shortages all while temperatures dropped
significantly that activity is its freezing on the east coast right now
people are going to princeton whatever excel that i mean missus this
is great for university students that you guys do you have access to such good infrastructure at the
specifically at princeton how much money flows causes had her own small power
plants stuff like that a lot of university infrastructure here which is
great for university students but i think this highlights a problem you know i mean it’s it is great but the
power’s back on for university students but the fact that it is still not back
line in forty percent of the city is a is a big problem and you know this just
reminded me of what we stock with the new york city marathon was that did not
actually end up going on as scheduled but up until i think friday or saturday it
was going to go ahead of schedule and what we saw is this huge influx of
support please marathon runners we had a generators running power an insane
amount of water wild literally onda doorsteps of people who had no homes also that these you know anything
out please can go around twenty six point two miles well don’t say i don’t like that
generators and given to the people who literally can’t cooked breakfast you
can’t turn on the lights who can take a warm shower and sandy without water to
people who can turn on their fonts it’s not the people who want to run compromise we get a massive treadmill have all the
marathon is run to generate power from surrounding communities that everybody
wins anytime they debated canceled americana are and and that’s not exactly
exactly the same obviously as as the comparison between immersed in the city and i just have expectation that’s places in certain groups of people i
have better infrastructure and and have better you know response capabilities in this
type of emergency and it’s too bad for the rest the city great for university
students spent about for the rest of the city yes so uh… we’ve got and why use
academic a buildings residence halls i do have power but not hot water as of
this report on many places have risen classes someone friday some started on monday of this week and
i met him throughout the rest of the week so uh… i’m hoping about that the storms that are inbound want to
um… any significant damage as they try to repair the damage working sandy ables sayin if you’re a student on the
east coast we’d love to hear how you guys are struggling with us i know that my mother’s in canada and she didn’t
have power for like five days something like that uh… like candles are quaint but after
a few days they’ve been through
