ONN – Iowa Derecho Storm Disaster Shown By YouTuber Fé Bean – 600,000 Went Without Power

Think you know about what is happening in America just by mainstream media? Forget it. The devastation of the Iowa Derecho Storm of August 10th, 2020, which caused $1 billion in damage and left 600,000 without power, is now just hitting the Internet. Two videos here at Oakland News Now capture the disaster. This is one of them, and by Fé Bean on YouTube. She writes:

Looking at the pictures of areas affected by this storm, you might think that a hurricane or a tornado was responsible. But this was a different kind of storm altogether—it was a derecho

I was on my way home after a walk by the lake when my husband called and asked me to leave immediately as a terrible storm was coming. I packed up my stuff, grab my kids and head toward the car. Within minutes I was caught in a hurricane like weather with massive winds. I could not leave nor seek shelter so my kids and I waited the storm in our car in a parking lot. Roofs blown off homes, fences and grills and debris strewn all over…. Trees uprooted, power lines litter the streets. Shingles flew like kite in 97 miles per hour wind.

After 30 minute, Most of Cedar Rapids Were in the dark, with no power no wifi

The town looked like a scene out of Armageddon .

Note from Zennie62Media and Oakland News Now: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
