East Coast Set to Suffer from ‘Historic’ Weather Event in Coming Days

This can’t be good…

Published

on

It truly feels as though the world itself is growing far more chaotic and cataclysmic by the day, and this week will likely be no exception.

A pandemic.  Murder hornets.  An alleged “insurrection”.  Wildfires and earthquakes.  These are but a few of the ridiculous and horrible incidents that the United States has faced in recent months, as 2020’s bizarre tumult spills over into the next calendar year.

Now, in addition, it appears as though the east coast is about to receive a walloping from an extremely rare event for the region:  A hurricane.

Henri was on the cusp of hurricane force over the western Atlantic on Friday afternoon, and as the storm’s track becomes clearer, AccuWeathermeteorologists emphasized that time was running out for Long Islanders and New Englanders to take action and get ready for the arrival of a hurricane that’s coming this weekend.

Henri is rated a 1 on the AccuWeather RealImpact™ Scale for Hurricanes due to the anticipated rainfall, damaging winds and storm surge set to impact Long Island and New England. “This is the most serious hurricane risk in New England in 30 years, since Hurricane Bob in 1991,” AccuWeather Chief Meteorologist Jon Porter said of the looming threat.

Authorities were not wasting any time.

Hurricane watches were issued by the National Hurricane Center (NHC) on Friday morning for a slew of areas ranging from the South Shore of Long Island, New York, to Massachusetts’s Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard and Block Island. By late Friday afternoon, the NHC has expanded tropical storm watches to include New York City in addition to other parts of the metro area.

Henri appears to be a well-rounded storm that will provide the northeast with both rain and battering winds, which makes the weather event all the more difficult to prepare for.

SEE IT: Amtrak Train Derails in Montana, Killing Several and Injuring Dozens

Investigators still don’t know what caused the derailment.

In a cruel twist of irony, the end of Rail Safety Week was marred by tragedy in Montana on Saturday, as an Amtrak passenger train careened of the tracks in Montana, perplexing investigators.

The incident caused a vast majority of the 10-car train to derail, injuring dozens and killing at least three people.

Amtrak joined federal safety officials Sunday to investigate a Montana train derailment that left at least three people dead, seven people hospitalized and rural communities scrambling to provide food and shelter to the stunned survivors.

The westbound Empire Builder train with 141 passengers and 17 crew members derailed Saturday afternoon near Joplin, a town of less than 200 people a few miles from the Canadian border in Liberty County. The tragedy occurred as Amtrak was closing out its nationwide, annual Rail Safety Week.

Vaccine Mandate Cold Cause Healthcare Worker Shortage in Major City

This is WILD!

Published

on

With the number of Americans concerned about the potential side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine remaining steady, establishments that are now dealing in vaccine mandates are in for a rude awakening.

For months now, the vaccination rate has remained steady here in the United States, despite full FDA approval for some of the inoculations, and a steady stream of pressure from the Biden administration.  The issue is that, of all the folks who want to receive a vaccine, nearly all have.  Those remaining unvaccinated are doing so by choice.

And that’s why a coming vaccine mandate could wreak havoc on the New York City healthcare worker population.

New York state officials are bracing for staffing shortages when the state’s health care worker vaccination mandate takes effect on Monday, and could be looking to the National Guard — as well as medical professionals from other states and countries — to help address them.

Gov. Kathy Hochul released a plan on Saturday, outlining the steps she could take to increase the workforce in the event that large numbers of hospital and nursing home employees do not meet the state’s deadline.

“We are still in a battle against COVID to protect our loved ones, and we need to fight with every tool at our disposal,” she said.

That could mean declaring a state of emergency to allow health care professionals licensed outside of New York, as well as recent graduates and retirees, to practice there. Other options include deploying medically trained National Guard members, partnering with the federal government to send Disaster Medical Assistance Teams to local health and medical systems and “exploring ways to expedite visa requests for medical professionals.”

And, to make matters worse, those who find themselves terminated for their choice to remain unvaccinated will not be eligible for unemployment benefits, further infuriating those who believe that waive their cache to receive an inoculation are being discriminated against.
