I interview a woman from Queens - a mother
Her son’s a firefighter and they still can’t account for him
She starts crying, and I start crying too, and I can’t stop shaking
I don’t want to do this anymore
I check in with air traffic control again and it’s more bad news -
Not only is the airspace still closed, but there’s a storm
Headed for Newfoundland!
Hurricane Erin is making landfall tomorrow or the day after
If we don’t get these planes in the air soon, no one’s going anywhere!
Claude, people are starting to crack
Let’s get everyone down to the Legion
[Kevin T, spoken]
Everyone’s going down to the Legion for a drink
