Hurricane Irene Death Toll Reaches 24

hurricane irene death toll reaches 24

So tragic and upsetting.

We've just learned that Hurricane Irene's death toll has risen to 24 people.

We're very disturbed by that number, given the fact that there were 14 reported deaths just yesterday.

It seems like we're past the worst of it, but we truly hope that nobody else loses their life due to this terrible hurricane.

We continue to send our thoughts and prayers out to everyone on the east coast.

    Catching a little of the news… some people died from trying to "sail" away from the hurricane, some died from falling branches including a child! Although any death is tragic, I am inclined to think that you get what you deserve in a case like this. As for the child, the parent should be in jail for child endangering and manslaughter. Who lets their child outside at a time like this? Every one was warned of this storm in plenty of time to get to rescue but they decided to sit and wait on it. The hurricane even dropped down to a little tropical storm, but they still managed to let tree branches break off and kill them. Maybe I am viewing this wrong, but this is the type of things that happen when people want to be stupid.

    Re: American4397 – I do understand what you are seeing but after reading about each individual death, several of the people died trying to rescue other people and the 11 year old boy who died was in his home when the tree fell through his house. Many of the places where people died were not expecting to get hit as hard as they were, and the places that were supposed to be hit hard weren't hit as hard as expected.

    Re: American4397 – You are being extremely ignorant. I live in New York City so I was definitely affected by this storm and TRUST ME you do not know what you are talking about. First of all, the little boy who was killed was not outside, he was killed when a tree branch went through his apartment! Second of all, a tropical storm is still extremely powerful, in fact, a tropical storm force wind and a hurricane force wind only varies by 5mph and in some places, they were still receiving wind gusts of over 90 mph which is considered hurricane wind speeds. This was not a little storm, we were lucky that it didn't impact us harder, but it still was bad. Yes, some people are stupid and like to be "storm chasers", but this was not a "little tropical storm".

    You are stupid, and ignorant. I live right where the storm went through here in North Carolina. That little boy was in his home, it should have been you.

    Re: maryawesome – These people knew about the hurricane for almost a week. Thats enough of a warning to evacuate! I do not feel sorry for some dumba** trying to save some other dumba** during a hurricane. They should have evacuated.
