Power Down, Jim Cantore Turns to Twitter with Updates on Sandy

LostRemote’s Natan Edelsburg caught up with Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore Tuesday night as Sandy’s devastation was just beginning to be measured.

We caught up with Cantore in Battery Park, a part of Manhattan that felt Sandy the worst. He had recently come from filming a guest appearance on Letterman on CBS (and was filmed in front of no audience). Cantore told Lost Remote how important Twitter was when they lost power in their truck. “Nothing travels faster than the news on social media,” he explains.
