Heads up, folks: the MBTA is suspending all service as of 2 p.m. today. This includes the commuter rail. Plan accordingly.
Stay safe, everyone.
I will be staying home and safe.
More info here . So far very calm here in Central/Western MA . Hope it stays that way, although NECN is saying we could have wind gusts to 60mph, at least those of us along the CT border. I wish we weren’t surrounded by trees. Not looking forward to the sound of CRACK…SWISH….CRASH again. Talk about terrifying — ducking for hours in the center of the house. I hope we don’t have to go through that again.
not many trees crash into 10th floor condos.
Good luck out there. I’m sure you’re prepared for the worst. Be smart and stay safe!
I wonder: will FEMA and other Federal Agencies pay to repair/renovate/modernize subway infrastructure which got thwacked by Sandy? It sure would be nice if the Subway (and Metro, SEPTA, and PATH) get major infrastructure upgrades after everything dries out.
As a side note: given that the Feds are on the hook for all disaster recovery nation wide, at least to some extent… at what point do the Feds put their foot down about building codes, inspections, etc. for both state/muni owned infrastructure and private infrastructure to be built to reduce chance of damage? I’m not suggesting that everything be designed to be hurricane-proof, but surely there are design decisions which are better or worse for $disaster- preparedness. California’s building code is much more wary of earthquakes than Nebraska’s, for example, and reasonably so. When do the Feds “nudge” building code, infrastructure planning, etc. to reduce the damage caused by events like Sandy?
