BREAKING NEWS

 

A major snowstorm has hit northern Ireland within the past 36 hours. It is estimated that the City of Belfast is covered in up to 48 inches of snow. Hundreds of thousands in northern Ireland are out of power and trapped inside. The snow is covering a thick ice sheet in the roads so it is almost impossible to plow them. Reports from local hospitals are saying that injured patients that were traveling in ambulances to them have lost communication and are feared to be stranded somewhere. Hospitals are currently using back up generators however they are only going to last another 24 hours at best.

 

Snow is still coming down but not as severely. Police and Air Force helicopters can be heard flying above buildings in the city looking for anyone hurt or stranded. More snow is expected tomorrow and citizens are asked to remain inside whatever building they are in. Emergency telephone lines have crashed due to the large number of calls from worried citizens.

 

President Leonardo Kennedy has deployed the 1st Guard Regiment, Irish Republican Guard consisting of 3800 soldiers to the city to help with SAR, Med Evac, and law enforcement. The Naval Task Force 4 has been ordered to leave their home port while conditions are mild in order to ensure the ships and crews' safety. The task force will be moved to Naval Station Dublin for the time being.

He has also deployed the 2nd and 3rd Regiments of the Irish Republican Guard.

The National Air Administration says that all airports around Belfast will remain closed for the time being. Minister of Infrastructures and Transports Mr. George Emerson also said that all ports will remain closed until power can be restored.

 

Minister of Energy Madam Monica Kanney believes that power can be restored to hospitals, fire stations, and police stations within the next week. Power for the rest of the city and its suburbs will take up to two months. 

 

Mr. Davon Ammon, Provincial Governor of Ulster, has allocated an additional $500 million in emergency aid to the city.

Weather Conditions 

Roads have been fully plowed and are safe to travel on once again but due to the electricity issue, rail stations, ports, and airports are still closed. Heat and Power has lucky been restored to hospitals and other emergency places along with government building so if needed go their for Heat and Power. It will take a while for electricity and heat to be restored to residential places and businesses sadly. The government is also considering buying a CIV412 helicopter for the fire-station but will wait till after this disaster. Due to their lack of competence during this disaster, the former Fire Chief and EMS Captain have been removed. The new Fire Chief is Leary Daly and the new EMS Captain is Agate Carran .

Restoring Power

 

ESB Networks is working to restore power to over 7,000 customers whose electricity supplies were disrupted as a result of the massive snow storm. Winds have caused extensive damage to the electricity network as a result of flying debris, fallen trees and broken poles. While the damage is concentrated mainly in the south and west of the city, there are customers without supply throughout the entire city. ESB believes that power can be restored later next week.

Humanitarian Assistance

 

The National Parliament passed an emergency bill allowing an additional $1.5 billion in aid to be allocated to the City of Belfast for continuing emergency operations and to help with reconstruction/recovery efforts. An additional $600 million has been allocated to the Province of Ulster to reimburse them for their contributions and to set up a homeowner grant program to help cover reconstruction costs.

 

President Leonardo Kennedy has ordered the Naval Task Force 6 from Naval Station Coleraine to deploy 10mi. off the coast of Belfast and to send marines and supplies to regional supply stations. ROTO-22 aircraft will be used to ferry severely injured persons back to the Liberty-Class Landing Ship for advanced medical treatment since many hospitals are experiencing overcrowding.

Mayor Down 

The mayor has gone crazy,  He has stolen a fighter jet from the Irish Aircraft and is sending all emergency vehicles including the CIVH412's and CIVH429's on an attack against Nordbeorne Kongedomme. All airports, railways, and ports have been destroyed along with the town hall. The deputy mayor and the cabinet have been dismissed and are currently taking the Governmental JET650 to Dublin. Belfast is over. This is the final report from "The Belfast Times" since the plane is apparently going to crash into this building before heading towards Nordbeorne Kongedomme.

CVBG: Raider was positioned in the North Sea, just off the coast of Jutland when the announcement was wired through from the Admiralty. Soon after, radar contacts and visual ID's from the combat air patrol of F-35's identified the incoming signatures as the aircraft described by the Admiralty.

 

All aircraft would be engaged by the F-35's and shot down. Any survivors would be rescued by the RAF helicopters based on the various warships and taken into custody after receiving any medical care required.

Once President Leonardo Kennedy received word of such ludicrous actions by the Mayor of Belfast, he ordered the airspace closed to ALL aircraft. He ordered the Naval 4th Expeditionary Strike Group and 1st Expeditionary Strike Group to position itself 10mi. off the coast of Belfast. President Kennedy has declared martial law in Belfast for the time being. The 1st Marine Expeditionary Brigade of 10,000 marines were to be deployed to the city along with the 1st Guard Regiment and 1st Ranger Battalion. A squadron of Su-34 would patrol over Belfast to enforce to no fly zone. Before the JET650 could crash into any building, the Medium Extended Air Defense System would launch SAMs to destroy it immediately. All other unauthorized aircraft attempting to leave Belfast would be shot down by the MEADS.

 

A diplomatic message would be sent to the Nordbeorne Kongedomme.
