Hurricane Irene: Best and Worst of Live Online Coverage (and Puerto Rico Street Shark)

Forget FEMA and television newscasters. How’d the web do for live coverage of Irene? Surely I’m not the only guy bored by our local coverage, as Yahoo Buzz puts “Hurricane Irene” as the third-most searched term on Yahoo (after the words Facebook and YouTube).

So how are we doing? Well the online-video coverage is varying about as much as the weather in the U.S. right now… from amateur (consumer generated) weather footage and news reports to the coverage of the Puerto Rico street shark, let’s have a look…

  1. I hope Irene blows some rain this way. It’s the worst drought of the last couple of centuries here in Texas.

  2. I don’t mean to come off as insensitive, but that’s clearly photoshop. You can’t that exact shark image on google, albeit chasing a kayak in the bahamas. Its from national geographic.

  3. MrB apparently has reading comprehension difficulties. Try reading the last paragraph again, MrB. There’s even a link to Washington Post explaining the image.
