TVN covered both facets of the "superstorm" with a team of Dave Holder, Mike Scantlin, Chad Cowan and Blake Knapp covering the hurricane in NYC, where massive flooding occurred along the coastal waters, and where a major fire erupted in Queens late Monday night.  Reed Timmer and Connor McCrorey covered the blizzard part of the storm, streaming live video and documenting massive snowfall amounts from Elkins, West Virginia!  Check out both videos up, below!


Due to Hurricane Sandy this week, both the podcast and "Tornado Chasers" have been pushed back to next Tuesday night (8 pm CDT) and Wednesday, respectively.  Also, episode 1 of "Tornado Chasers" is up online for FREE, watch below!  Those who purchased episode 1 should have received an email this week about gaining free access to episode 7, which will debut this Wednesday here!

As the strongest hurricane ravaged the East Coast last week, the number of jobless claims dropped across the nation. Some of that drop, experts warn, is a result of Sandy closing down offices and delaying operations along the Eastern Seaboard. Source: Hurricane Sandy Jobless Claims

For sandy I was videotaping and helping eoc response in Glenn burnie Maryland. It's bizarre that so much havoc was wreaked from this storm. Comparatively, the damage that was wrought inmaryland was small and almost beneath mention. How strange it is that I can go from monster earthquakes in Japan to this kind of insanity. Nice to know I wasn't the only one who braved the storm!
