Bwoglines: Disaster Edition

What awaits us in the next few days.

As I’m sure you know by now, there’s a moderately large storm creeping into the eastern United States, causing quite some damage. It’s destroying New York and other states in the East Coast, and while at Columbia it doesn’t seem like much so far, the storm has begun claiming lives in the United States. (Reuters, CNN)

A Brown student apparently doesn’t believe in the hurricane. That takes “question everything” to whole new levels. (turnto10.com)

In the future, natural disasters may be making their way to Europe, since according to scientists Lake Geneva might be at risk of having a tsunami that could hit one million people. (Telegraph.co.uk)

On a lighter note, Avengers director Joss Whedon says Mitt Romney will cause the zombie apocalypse. (NY Daily News)

    @Sandy7 “The status of classes and operations for Wednesday (10/31) is now being evaluated in light of State and City decision-making about transit and other essential services. We will provide an additional update later this afternoon and will continue to update the Morningside service announcements here.”

    @SEAS '14 I agree with this persons logic on professors cancelling their own classes if they can’t get here, although I wish it wasn’t so..

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous We really should have school tomorrow. The only real issue would be people getting to campus. So let some professors cancel classes if they need to. Otherwise this is just ridiculous…

    1. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous Why do you rain on the hopeful thoughts of every Columbia Student around?….

    2. What about says:

      @What about students who live off campus? There’s a significant number of them, especially when you count grad students and GS students.

  • NYU says:

    @NYU is closed tomorrow.

  • NYC Public Schools says:

    @NYC Public Schools Are closed tomorrow

  • questions says:

    @questions Will we have school tomorrow?

  • can't tell if the Brown student says:

    @can't tell if the Brown student is hilarious or the worst

    1. I can't tell either... says:

      @I can't tell either... …”that’s what the government wants us to believe” ?? was he serious or just messing with the reporter?

      1. Meh. says:

        @Meh. I think he’s pretty clearly fucking with her – and the cameraman picked up on it, slowly turning the focus away from him.

    2. he is says:

      @he is the perfect troll

    @Anonymous I guess NYU “really doesn’t have a campus” now, huh?
