Recovering From Irene

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

Hurricane Irene swept through the Northeast last weekend with a fury that destroyed homes, roads, towns, and took lives. Now, people in towns and cities across the region are coping with the clean-up process. The storm hit places in Vermont and upstate New York particularly hard.

Sean Mahoney, a resident of Hunter, New York, where Irene caused floods, says he is stunned by the way the media has chosen to cover the disaster. You can see some of Mahoney's photos of the destruction below.

The person who said the protestors are missing the point about who to be angry at is SO wrong. There is equal anger at the government! Since Wall St. is lining the pockets of our government, it is all related. I drove from MA to NYC yesterday to sit in and witness!
