New Jersey coastal town turned to ‘devastation’

Excerpt:

Using boats, and trucks, rescuers dragged about 200 stranded people to safety away from the waterlogged town and the devastated barrier islands. But many of those saved, in that coastal town in the footsteps of Manhattan, took with them not only their pets and whatever keepsakes they could muster. They take with them the memories of the savage night Sandy came. Esther Sarabella and her mother found themselves trapped in their car with flood waters up to their necks Monday night. Grueling recovery begins on the East Coast “You don’t know, you don’t know where to go, you’re trying to get out of the window, you’re up to your neck in water. It’s freezing, the wind is blowing,” said the still shaken woman. “I got a dog, I got my mother. You don’t know what’s going to happen. You see your life pass. You’re in shock. Everybody’s in shock.

Key:

  • Aggregate Sentiment is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s overall sentiment.
  • The Mean is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s average comment sentiment.
  • The Standard Deviation, when there are enough quotes, will indicate an individual’s consistency of sentiment (i.e. a Standard Deviation of 0 would mean they were very consistent in their sentiment and 1 would mean they were very inconsistent).

Note that quote stats are likely to be meaningless beyond the aggregate score due to the tiny sample size. However, they are always provided just in case you find something useful there.
