Extra! Extra! Read all about it! The big news in New Rochelle is in the air - literally. With winds at close to Hurricane strength - gusts in excessed of 60 mph - New Rochelle has experienced some major transportation delays but no reported electrical outages so far.
But the big news for us here at Talk of the Sound is that thanks to our new and improved Yahoo Pipe we broke the news of the roof collapse at the New Rochelle Intermodal Transportation Center here first - beating every traditional news outlet in the area including the Journal News, WCBS Radio and Bloomberg.
Here are some of the Tweets which appeared in New Ro Buzz after the roof collapse shut down train service:
kamander: I was evacuated from my train at New Rochelle after the roof of the overpass was blown right off on top of my train, pulling down all the electrical wires.
ebroms: Sooo the platform above the New Rochelle train station collapsed. Hope everyone's ok, but now I can't get into NYC. Lame.
Franklin_Bluth: is currently waiting for the repair teams in New Rochelle to clean up the debris, so he might leave NYC.
