mystified that much of brooklyn is covered with a fine haze of smoke, accompanied by acrid fumes of burning tires yet there is zero coverage from news media nor city services.
where is the early alert? why isn’t there a system in place?
awakened by burning eyes and the smell at 3 a.m. and the only self-help information available came from twitter and flickr. evidently, the smoke is from a four-alarm chemical fire at a tire recycling plant in new jersey. there are thousands of posts on twitter related to the incident yet not a single journalist has run the story.
