Small town America is now getting attention over the disasters caused by Hurrican Irene. Across inland portions of the Northeast are reeling over flooding, although initial reports about the minimal effects in big cities. Reporters standing on boardwalks being buffeted by winds is the stuff of hurricane coverage and it takes a while to get the rest of the story.
Governor Cuomo and Secretary Napolitano are touring upstate areas today.
As we learned during the 1998 ice storm a lot of suffering can occur away from the beaten path. Best wishes to all those struggling in the aftermath of Irene.
