- Sep 18, 2004You are so right, Mark...the only news you get of the side effects of Ivan (or any hurricane) is the damages occured directly in the path of the hurricane. People don't think of what other effects things like hurrincanes have.
I don't read mainstream press...been lied to way too many times in the last 3+ years. But I read alternative press and it is covering the results of the Ivan. Any major disruption in our atmosphere like hurricanes, tornadoes, etc., all have cause and effect.
Bush was quick to declare his brother's state, Florida, a disaster area following Frances...has he declared WV or Ohio disaster areas. Bet he will declare Ohio a disaster area...it's a swing state in the elections. But WV...I doubt he'll give it a second thought...especially since that is Senator Robert Byrd's state and doesn't have many electoral votes.
My heart goes out to the people in areas that are forgotten in the aftermath of Ivan.

Ivan is finsihed yet. wheeling WV had 9.5 inches of rain Fri, Pittsburgh PA had 7, an all time record for one day. The initial flooding was the creek's quickly overflowing, stranding kids in schools blocking roads knocking out electric and all that sor tof stuff. That receded by this morning. My son's soccer field is covered with silt and the goals full of debris.
Now the Ohio river is slowly rising. It is almost surreal, because it is warm sunny and still out, but the Ohio keeps rising, forcing 10s of thousands to flee their homes and will peak an estimated 13 feet over flood stage on Sunday. More millions in dollars worth of damages, which on it's own would have been national news but as merely a side effect of Ivan, isn't even getting mentioned. I spent the day emptying basements and helping people move.
