New York Declares State Of Emergency Ahead Of Nor'easter Snowstorm

Tyler Durden's picture





 

A day after the new NYC mayor was sworn in, it looks like he will be busy digging his brand new city from under "blizzardlike" conditions including 5-6 inches of snow, which it seems are enough for New York governor Andrew Cuomo to declare...

The road closures are already known:

Finally, some details on what to expect:

Authorities are prepping hundreds of plows and tons of salt, shutting down highways and making contingency plans for mass transportation as a powerful nor'easter that is expected to dump up to 10 inches of snow on parts of the tri-state area and bring caustic 25-mph winds bears down on the East Coast.

 

A blizzard warning is in effect for Long Island, and winter storm warnings are in effect for most of the tri-state through Friday morning and hundreds of flights at the region's three primary airports were canceled by mid-afternoon Thursday. A winter storm watch is in effect for central New Jersey and points south.

 

Flurries began falling late Wednesday into Thursday, leaving a light dusting of snow on roads and walkways for the first commute of the new year. Forecasters say snowfall will become heavier and steadier Thursday evening into Friday, accompanied by plunging temperatures and whipping winds that will make it feel like 10 degrees below zero in some spots overnight.

 

Gov. Cuomo has already announced the Long Island Expressway will be shut down at midnight within Nassau and Suffolk. The Queens section of the L.I.E. will remain open. Route 87 south of Albany will also be closed, and all of Route 84 will be shut down.

 

The roads will be reopened at 5 a.m., if conditions allow.

 

In New York City, 6 to 8 inches of fluffy snow are expected by Friday morning, and 8 to 10 inches of snow are possible north and west of the city and Long Island. Three to 6 inches are expected to fall in central and southern New Jersey.

 

The snowfall will combine with winds gusting up to 35 miles per hour to create possible white-out conditions, severely hampering visibility late Thursday into Friday, particularly in areas expected to see more accumulation. Drivers are urged to stay off the roads after Thursday afternoon.

 

The winds will cause the snow to drift onto roads, and the frigid temperatures will prevent any melting, which could make for dangerously slick roads for Friday's morning commute.

 

Mass transit is a "prudent option, given that highways may be closed," Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a conference call with reporters Wednesday.

No need to do that now.  NYPD has been trained by Mossad.  NYPD has a branch in Israel now

The extreme militarization of American police forces has been brought to public attention by the tactics employed against Occupy protesters, which often appear more appropriate to counter-terrorism operations than to the control of non-violent protest. According to investigative journalist Max Blumenthal, however, the proper term for this ruthless suppression of dissent should be “Israelification.”

In an article which begins with examples of American police training alongside Israeli security forces, Blumenthal writes, “Having been schooled in Israeli tactics perfected during a 63 year experience of controlling, dispossessing, and occupying an indigenous population, local police forces have adapted them to monitor Muslim and immigrant neighborhoods in US cities. Meanwhile, former Israeli military officers have been hired to spearhead security operations at American airports and suburban shopping malls, leading to a wave of disturbing incidents of racial profiling, intimidation, and FBI interrogations of innocent, unsuspecting people. The New York Police Department’s disclosure that it deployed ‘counter-terror’ measures against Occupy protesters encamped in downtown Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park is just the latest example of the so-called War on Terror creeping into every day life. Revelations like these have raised serious questions about the extent to which Israeli-inspired tactics are being used to suppress the Occupy movement.”

Here in my part of the Democratic People's Republic California, it's beautiful all year round.  I play golf at least twice a week, mostly in shirt sleeves or a sweater, we are taxed so much that people are migrating elsewhere, the State has it's arm up our arses to the elbow without any KY, the laws being passed by the Progressive Marxists here are unbearably intrusive, statist and just plain fucking dumb, I cannot carry openly unless I want to spend the rest of my life in the Buggery Basement at Pelican Bay and if I were to own a firearm in any case, I sure as shit wouldn't get it registered or get a carry permit as they'd know right were to come when the confiscation begins, but that's a moot point for me.  (But there are substitutes, like baseball bats, knives, bows and arrows, Tazers, Mace and heads on sticks.)  I even get to have illustrious intelligentsia like Maxine Water represent my state in Congress, all of whom still probably get airlifted back and forth between coasts on air-force equipment running up bottomless tabs on decades old Scotch, caviar and champagne. And most people out here are indeed a little bat-shit crazy, but then again, it is known as the precursor to American Society and Culture.  Except for New Jersey and Snooki, et al, who we even laugh at.  So fucking there, I dare you to beat that.

Thu, 01/02/2014 - 17:21 | Link to Comment JustObserving
JustObserving's picture

Why?  Bloomberg was a fascist who ignored the Constitution and illegally searched everybody and turned the NYPD into a fascist, military police:

Bloomberg's main achievement was illegally stopping and frisking 1800 New Yorkers every day of his term. And the not-so-secret stop-and-frisk quota for every New York cop.

He also brought in drones and the Israeli miltary and police to train NY cops, the Israelification of the NYPD. The NYPD even opened a branch in Israel.

Bloomberg made New York safe for fascism.

“Given the amount of training the NYPD and so many other police forces have received from Israel’s military-intelligence apparatus,” Blumenthal concludes, “and the profuse levels of gratitude American police chiefs have expressed to their Israeli mentors, it is worth asking how much Israeli instruction has influenced the way the police have attempted to suppress the Occupy movement, and how much it will inform police repression of future upsurges of street protest. But already, the Israelification of American law enforcement appears to have intensified police hostility towards the civilian population, blurring the lines between protesters, common criminals, and terrorists.”

ROBERT JORDAN,

Plaintiff-Appellant,

-v-

No. 99-9188

CITY OF NEW LONDON and KEITH HARRIGAN,

Defendants-Appellees.

Appearing for Appellant: Diane Polan, New Haven, Connecticut

Appearing for Appellee: Ralph J. Monaco, Conway & Londregan, P.C., New London, Connecticut

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut (Dorsey, Judge).

ON CONSIDERATION WHEREOF, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED, ADJUDGED, AND DECREED that the judgment of said District Court be and it hereby is AFFIRMED.

On March 16, 1996, plaintiff Robert Jordan and 500 other applicants underwent a written screening process conducted by the Law Enforcement Council of Southeastern Connecticut, Inc. ("LEC"), a coalition of fourteen cities and towns, for a position as a police officer. That testing process operated as an initial screen for participating police departments. The testing material included the Wonderlic Personnel Test and Scholastic Level Exam ("WPT"), which purports to measure cognitive ability. An accompanying manual listed recommended scores for various professions and cautioned that because overqualified candidates may soon become bored with unchallenging work and quit, "[s]imply hiring the highest scoring employee can be self-defeating." Jordan scored a 33 on the WPT, above the median for any listed occupation, and well over the normative median of 21 suggested for a police patrol officer.


In the fall of 1996, Jordan learned that the city of New London was interviewing candidates. Upon further inquiry, however, he learned from assistant city manager Keith Harrigan that he would not be interviewed because he "didn't fit the profile." Plaintiff, who was 46 years old, suspected age discrimination and filed an administrative complaint with the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities. The city responded that it removed Jordan from consideration because he scored a 33 on the WPT, and that to prevent frequent job turnover caused by hiring overqualified applicants the city only interviewed candidates who scored between 20 and 27.


Plaintiff brought a civil rights action in the District Court for the District of Connecticut (Dorsey, Judge) alleging that the city and Harrigan denied him equal protection in violation of the Fourteenth Amendment and Article 4, Section 20, of the Connecticut Constitution. On August 29, 1999, the district court granted defendants' motion for summary judgment, finding no suspect classification and that defendants had "shown . . . a rational basis" for the policy. We agree that New London's use of an "upper cut" did not violate the equal protection clause and affirm the judgment of the district court.

So Al...have you run a geiger counter around your property in Malibu lately?  I'm sure the massive amounts of Fukushima radiation that will soon be wafting into your living room non-stop for decades to come will do wonders for your property values and your health as well!  Live long and prosper, Al ;-)

Damn! Another snowstorm? Yikes, how many does this make? I read the UK papers every morning and have been following since last year the steady stream of North Atlantic and North Sea storms that crash into Britain, it is nearly endless.

The Jet Stream is in an unusual deep wave pattern which gets stuck in place for long periods, Depending on which side of the jet stream you are on, you can be locked into storm after storm. This is just how the UK has been and now New England. Evidence from the changing ocean currents and the unglued jet stream seem to indicate that New England could see cold winters and severe storms, the same for England.

I am stuck on the cold side of the big jet stream dip, and for us, that means cold. Sunday coming up we expect a high of -17 degrees F, and a low of -32 degrees F. I can assure you from years of living up here, anything under -30F is fucking cold! Funny thing once when I had a girl friend from Australia, she came to stay with me for the Holidays. Coming from Midsummer in Melbourne Victoria, to Northern Minnesota in late December. That poor girl damn near died. She kept breathing through her nose and nearly froze he sinuses. I finally convinced her that you must breath through your mouth in weather below zero.

From my following of climate news, I believe the pattern that the NE and England experience now should continue until there is some bigger influence to break the pattern. El Nino is due, this coming year, if it indeed does develop, then hang onto your hats, if you are long insurance companies that are into property coverage, I suggest getting the hell out right now. Go long building supply companies, I am looking into such an investment on a small scale, IF I see the big El nino event developing.

Jet stream getting stuck never used to happen until what, a  decade ago?

But weather manipulation is just a conspiracy, of course.

Up north here it was 7 below and I was out for two hours with just a hat with my face exposed and had my glove off for 20 minutes. When I returned home, the government was issuing warnings about have any skin exposed for 5 minutes in Boston. What's Chicken Little's number at the weather bureau, so I can obtain government help?

The " Il Duce on the Hudson " has decreed - no drivers shall be seen on the wee dictator's roads. What a joke. Who in their right mind would live in that hellhole. I live in Maine -its bad enough - but I could never imagine dealing with the full blown tyrants and their retard decrees ,found in New Yaawk. At least here in Maine the tyrants ruling us are restrained by a modicum of common sense. Then again they could decree and everyone  15 miles north of the coast would just say fuck em!
