  • JRB0 JRB0 slide 23: For CERT and other motivated & mobile citizens, CEAN was an opportunity for Sit.Aware. & feedback.
    slide 34/35: Despite continued Heat Emergency, most county facilities were shut for the holiday, and heat PSAs were sparse & spare.
    slide 42: fery encouraging. A project title/ search keyword/ or link would have been helpful.

  • JRB0 JRB0 slide 14: Would it be good for neighborhoods to know this 'F&R windshield survey', and know they might be able to flag down an Em. Vehicle to pass on emergency information, but not expect them to respond?
    slide 15: What does this mean when the phones are dead?
    slide 16: 'Messaging was done':-( Few radio (TV?) chanels passed this on, and most stupidly/outrageously referred folk without power to visit a website for locations!

  • JRB0 JRB0 slide 9/42: Guess what percent of homes with damage bothered to report it to the county. There is no obvious requirement, and no common knowledge of any benefit, and the mechanism has apparently changed again, since the last big storm. (A link would be appropriate, even in this slide.) 1 year ago

  • JRB0 JRB0 Slide 8/42: This paragraph is rerepeditave & ambiguous. (obfuscation?) ; Perhaps it should read,
    'Forty (of 63) county WWT stations lost power (for a few minutes?) until their generators started to power the pumps, but that was useless without power to the control systems which are only powered by Dominion (design changes are expected). For several days, the county was at 30% of treatment capacity & initiated some water restrictions. ...'
    I don't care about SCADA, but does loss of control for lack of commercial power mean that despite the generators, they still did not work, they worked at reduced effectiveness, or they worked fine for a while?

  • JRB0 JRB0 slide 3/42: Of course, the 'Storm Call' volume was suppressed by widespread loss of power & phone service (and well known by Verizon) during the 45min storm. Dominion Power output/consumption (avoided in chart 3/42) was a much better indicator for Public Service Situational Awareness.
    slide 4/42: dawn at 5:30 when I again reported and recommended power & phone assessments and the obviously needed helocopter visual survey, still took 4 hours to reactivate (only 2 hours before the state declaration!). Utilities are NOT private enterprises, they are appropriately controled monopolies, and their officers must be held accountable & responsible.
