While this particular area of the country is relaxing in seasonable degrees of warmth and people are pressing on with a sense of normality in their daily lives: one part isn’t as these enduring, steadfast humans are having the time of their lives in mere survival. The Susquehanna River is over reaching its banks and is therefore coming up on the roadways, houses, farms and making a mockery of the communities of Wilkes-Barre and adjacent towns uninhabitable soon enough. The persons in Binghamton, Ithaca, Syracuse, Utica in upstate New York are in the same boat as the people in Pennsylvania. As much as these communities are helping themselves by daily sandbagging it is a momumental task. These floods are as a result of hurricane Irene and still the lands are in havoc with mud and destructive unhealthy waters surrounding their each and every property as the raw sewage becomes a real problem that is unimaginable in the way of coping. However these people who are faced with this, have an inner strength and built in pride and therefore will come through with flying colours.
