Nature's Fury
by Rajender Krishan Bookmark and Share
 
Nature is unpredictable. When furious, she can cause devastation in a matter of seconds.  No wonder, we the Hindus are taught to worship nature in all her manifestations.

This is what happened on September 16, 2010 in parts of Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island when a monster storm ripped through the New York city. It lasted just two minutes.  However, strong winds left their mark with over 1500 trees wrecked and knocking out power for over 20,000 homes.  Funnel clouds observed by witnesses, turned into two tornoados and a macroburst that carried wind at 125 mph.  The twisters barreled along a 14-mile path across the area.

It is though a miracle that inspite of the densely populated area, there was only one death. 

According to reports 62 buildings were damaged.  In some areas, specifically, Brooklyn, roofs of brownstone homes got damaged and swept exposing the rooms.  An official estimate has not yet been made in terms of financial loss that will be incurred to replace damaged properties.

Shown below are images taken by me showing the damage inflicted by the storm in our neighborhood - Bayside, Queens, NY.

Article Comment 'As flies to wanton boys are we to the gods/they kill us for their sport' (King Lear) - cataclysmic events like these remind us, in spite of the scientific knowledge and technical power we have achieved, in the vast cosmic scheme of things how insignificant we are! A unique blog which has very effectively conveyed this message very graphically without wasting many words. The shots are superb and their selection shows Rajenderji's admirable skill as a photographer.

Article Comment Fantastic images-they speak volumes about the nature's fury. This should be an eye opener for developing countries like India that nature doesn't spare any one-rich or poor. We have Norwesters in Bengal-the storm at NY seems to be akin to that1
