Anybody readers out in Connecticut (south of Storrs)? My husband and I can't reach our daughter - I figure she doesn't have any cell signal right now. What's it like in that area?

She's probably fine - it doesn't sound like it is that bad out there. I wouldn't worry except she and her boyfriend chose to stay at his place (an old converted 3-story brick mill) which is right on the RIVER instead of her place (an old house surrounded by trees). They might be sitting up on the roof about now.

even though we are many miles from each other some 6 hours by car, the winds here are crazy still. This storm is still going strong.

Wind is starting to pick up a little more here...still not too bad, but getting some stronger wind gusts off and on.

dam failure lake spilling into West branch of westfield river

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1510656


BECKET, Mass. (WWLP) - The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning for central Berkshire County and in Western Hampden and Hampshire Counties after a trained weather spotter reported that the dam at Big Robin Lake in East Becket had failed.

The water from the dam will be rushing into Walker Brook West Branch of the Westfield River, toward Chester and Huntington.

If you are near any of these bodies of water, you are urged to be vigilant and seek higher ground if necessary.

Re: BREAKING ! Post Effects Of Irene Official Thread
Upstate NY: My location we have nothing more than a rainy summer day and no wind.

I know millions of people lost power. I watched a hurricane come into N.C. and live reports from Kill Devil Hills where I've seen news reports for many hurricanes throughout the years. As the storm passed, no significant damage was BROADCAST for anyone to see. Most shots were carefully picked with people posing in areas where a street was flooded. It was apparent to any armchair meteorologist early on that a storm that made landfall in N.C. was not going to have enuf steam to be catastrophic later on.

There was a storm surge which they are saying has caused billions of dollars of damage. Up the coast, New Jersey may have had the worst damage with roofs off and power lines down.

Last night, very late, the anchors on TV refused to note when the storm had weakened. Bill Hemmer said dramatically, "They're waiting for daylight so they can go out and see what's left of their town."

Another anchor tried to justify the panic by saying "No matter what Irene DOES OR DOESN'T DO, the impact on tens of millions of people is astounding."

Fox news Rick Levanthal reported "you need to keep a 3x5 card in your shoe so they will be able to identify you if you are DEAD."

wow. really?

Lower Manhattan has some flooding, but across the city they have BRANCHES down and "puddling." The subway damage is yet to be accessed and one tube into the Holland Tunnel is flooded.

I'm watching close cropped still-shots of flooding on TV. Many local authorities did not want to play anything down because they are already strapped for cash and want to make sure they get their emergency FUNDING from federal funds. The blow to the economy from the storm paled in comparison to at least 3 major cities being SHUT DOWN in it's anticipation. Nobody wanted to be blamed for anything, so civilization ground to a halt. People can debate whether that was a wise decision, but I am looking forward to a clear assessment of this situation from someone in the news who has no agenda.

While the loss of life was of course tragic, we've had greater loss of life with many of the thunderstorms that have come through over the summer.

In the last few months, we have seen President Obama and Janet Napolitano ABSENT on many MORE IMPORTANT situations. In anticipation of a re-election campaign, they've suddenly become fearless leaders.

At the least, this was a drill for what is coming at us in the future. And if NYC and the rest of the Northeast can't handle a borderline tropical storm better without coming close to declaring marital law in the "best interest" of the people, we're screwed.

I don't think any of the core posters were hoping for doom, so kindly take your agenda elsewhere.

And no-- I don't own a TV, so I have no idea of the "hype" generated around this storm. But, this is not the venue to scream your... whatever the hell your belching about.

Flooding is a major problem right now. There are no fewer than 6 dams in NY state and Mass. close to breaching. The rains keep falling on saturated ground, and the waterways won't crest for several days.
