End

On a website the places are listed where the islanders can get hot food and water, where they can charge their mobile phones at so-called Charge Tables. Read more:

The first big event of the time of the end, after the Struggle Between Nations, is the Earth Upheaval. In order to be able to imagine the consequences of this event it is good to have a look at disasters that happen these days. A suitable case is Sandy.

The details of the following report come from New York, probable the place which one can consider the top of civilisation. And now one has to imagine how something like this will end in the bush where everything is far away from any kind of help.

I have a torch which can be supplied with power by pressing a lever a couple of times. Something like this should be available for mobile phones and computers. After Fukushima such pieces of equipment should have come available immediately but all the producers seem to be asleep.

Here excerpts from a report I read today:

 

Damages through Sandy: Many Long Island people still without power

Power failure after hurricane "Sandy"

Cold nights on Long Island

The nights are crisply cold, the days short, everyday occurrences like the charging of the mobile phone becomes a challenge: Tens of thousands of New Yorkers still have to live without power supply, after two weeks ago hurricane "Sandy" swept across the country. Affected are above all sick and old people.

His life depends on daylight: "You live with the sun, and when it has set the day is over and you go to bed", says Miles Rose, who lives in Long Beach. Almost two weeks after the rage of hurricane "Sandy" the IT consultant and with him about 130,000 other inhabitants of the island Long Island in New York have still no power.

In Long Island however many families looked forward to the 13th night without power, without hot water and without heating, at temperatures under zero degree. "It is terrible."

Miles Rose, the IT consultant, has established a website with which the inhabitants of Long Island can be supplied with information and where they can interchange. His computer is operated with the help of a solar cell and a car battery. On freecycleplus.com/longbeach Ross lists the places where the islanders can get hot food and water, where they can charge their mobile phones at so-called Charge Tables and where they can fetch donated clothing.
