Or, "staten island doesn't have generators BECAUSE the marathon does"
2 very very different statements
Beats me, I just responded with the first article I found.
My guess is that the generators are from a private company and are specifically for the marathon. I've never heard of diesel generators being used for homes during a widespread power outage. The article says it could power 400 homes, but their are thousands without power. Selecting a lucky 400 homes to be hooked up to a DG sounds asinine to me. I would imagine that DGs are already being used to power essential, rescue, and health services. People are just frustrated, angry, exhausted and scared, which leads to unfounded whining. With that being said, if I was in their position I'd be whining as well. Its suck city over there.
