A research project is being done at Weill Cornell Medicine with the University of Kansas and they are asking for volunteers. They write:
"Are you 65+ and open to sharing your experience living through COVID-19 and extreme heat events? We would love to talk to you. A team of University of Kansas and Weill Cornell Medicine researchers are seeking New York City residents who are willing to participate in online interviews this October. The study will not be a time-heavy commitment, will be conducted safely distanced from home, and is a wonderful way for you to contribute to research that hopes to inform policy and improve societal wellbeing. For more information or any questions, please contact [email protected]. Professor So-Min Cheong at the University of Kanas is our lead investigator."

Love this time-lapse capture of the storm a couple nights ago. Repost from @nicolebamber

“Forgot the time-lapse cam was on and it captured the freak #storm we got stuck in. The weather burst was so aggressive the wind started lifting up entire bags of trash. The most 2020 storm ever. Giant bags of hot trash slamming people in the face as they sprint home because the police were yelling ‘SEEK SHELTER’ on the megaphones. K. 2020.
