in San Angelo Police Enforcing Barricades in Storm Damaged Area
..in Boston, what you described, actually happened. After their ''terrorist" patsy was captured, all the inmates (residents) took to the streets and cheerfully celebrated their captors, and their Machiavellian police state tactics.
Our government, in collusion with mainstream and social media, emotionally and psychologically prodded at the hearts and minds of a vulnerable populace, resulting in a type of city wide Stockholm syndrome: e.g. people arriving to their homes that evening, only to be muscled about, at gunpoint by the National Guard -- and seeing nothing wrong this overnight militarization of police authority . After all, they had a single 20 year old kid to catch.
I think, however, the measures employed here the day following the storms, were more for genuine concerns of safety for the residents and their properties, than a dry run to see how long it takes to corral morons into their homes.
in Warning Sirens Silenced; Emergency Alerts Go Digital
Depending on a TV is a moronic statement. Sirens are not an outdated technology, only the type of sirens that San Angelo has hung onto forever. They could have been replaced at least twice over the years, but our dipstick elected officials have decided to spend our taxes on who knows what. There are many, reliable replacement systems that should be selected as the primary means of notification & Nixle is free, so that could be secondary. This isn’t rocket science!
in UPDATE: City Releases Summary on Storm Cleanup
You can say what you want about San Angelo but, the way people take care of each other after a disaster is world-class and second to none.
I witnessed first-hand the volunteerism and dedication to folks that had lost everything after the major storm / tornado of May 28, 1995. My father was a survivor of the Lakeview tornado of 1953 and it seems that San Angeloans taking care of each other hasn’t changed much in almost 70 years.
As a San Angelo ex-pat and multi-generational native, it’s a bright ray of sunshine to see people that still take care of one another in this crazy, upside-down world… Be proud San Angelo that you live in a very special place. It’s rare to find that elsewhere – believe me. And yes, I miss home San Angelo, Texas
in Cleanup Begins as National Weather Service Confirms Tornado Struck San Angelo
and never coming back.
You better run out and get a weather radio.
Get real. Who was awake at 0500 with their TV on?
Granted, the weather was indeed talked about and predicted in the days leading up to it, but there was literally ZERO warning available for people who were sleeping during the time the NIXLE, Landline, and NOAA Weather Radio alerts should've been waking people up. NIXLE was quiet. My landline phone never rang. The NOAA Weather Radio station doesn't even come up on the Motorola NOAA Weather Radio my wife bought from Wal-Mart, and checking the NOAA website for the frequency information has never shown the station to be actually online all the times I've checked.
I woke up on my own, checked the radar on my computer, and caught the live stream from KSAN and KLST via Facebook. Even after their lights went out, they continued to live stream on battery power, all the while with the very same weather event they're warning us about bearing down on them (they always go the extra mile during these times - kudos to KSAN and KLST).
But they are not the City of San Angelo, who are responsible for public safety and the early warning systems required to help with that cause. The ball has been dropped by COSA so many times on so many issues that have wound up costing us millions in tax-payer dollars. How much more money or how many lives will it take for accountability to come into play? They pulled the tornado warning sirens before NIXLE was a proven system... when in actuality, both systems are needed (the sirens for initial alert and those without smart phones, and NIXLE for passing information). Even then, still not a perfect solution, but still way better than waking up to the experience of your roof being forcefully removed by the weather event you should've been warned about.
Since the city, in it's so called great wisdom, decided that the sirens are passe....any idea how we can change their minds and get them to reconnect these? Think about it: high winds, storms KLST and KSAN go out, internet service is spotty, those sirens are the only thing that let us know a tornado is coming!
Is a third world city with 4th class citizens.
So these people that live in this area are being forced to be prisoners in their own homes?
a TV. they have been around for a few years now. They have news and weather on there you know.
This weather was talked about and predicted since the weekend before.
Also a weather radio that tunes to the National Weather Service is a hell of a lot better than those 1960 sirens.
If you can look outside and see and feel winds of 82 mph like I did it will make you think you might want to get to cover.
Check it out.
in New Early Morning Flight From San Angelo to DFW on Larger Jet Starting in June
what's wrong with them since CBD is a liquid. Hell, they're drowning.
I know you want to hear positive about the new warning system. I am sorry, I won’t say positive. Not everyone has a cell phone. Some don’t even have land lines. We have both, but we didn’t get the land line notice at all. We got cell phone alert 30 minutes after the storm. Last week, we did not get a warning on the storm. Several people can’t afford phones. What happens then?
Go ahead with your phone alerts....but there needs a secondary program for the ones the phone alerts don’t help or work. Come to think of it, I have never had a land line phone alert.
in Some Areas in and Around San Angelo Will Have No Power Until Monday
Those who deride the meteorologists for sounding the alarm of inclement weather are strangely silent........
Thankfully nobody has been hurt, at least from what people I've talked to. I was actually glad to see Lares on Live, I was going to try to reach you via smack talk if you hadn't posted first... Glad all are ok! Will be scanning the pawn shops for one in the future!
the cost alone of just flying out of SJT would make anyone drive.... You guys are def snorting something but it aint cbd
