News reporter predicts apocalypse during Philly ice storm
Fox News local reporter Karen Hepp of “Good Day Philadelphia” comforted the good people in the suburb of West Chester, in which many homes lost power in the last 48 hours and are bearing the brunt of the Polar Vortex.
And by “comforted” I mean had a near-nervous breakdown live on the air.
“This is not the end of the storm,” Hepp tells her anchors. “We are just entering an ice storm … Most people in our area don’t have a memory of what an ice storm is. We’re going to be having people dying in the next couple of days. We’re going to be losing heat in many of our homes. People are going to be making poor choices. We’re gonna see people use candles. We will have many, many fires. We will see some of the heaters catch fires. We will see people bring generators in their houses.
OK, Mom, we got it.
And yet, Hepp continued the safety lecture: “We always joke about snowstorm weather and ‘why’s everybody going to the supermarket’ and buying all the cheese and the eggs and that stuff … Tonight people will not have heat in their homes. They’re gonna get cold … This is going to be lingering … This is the time to look and say ‘what am I gonna do to survive tonight?'”
Hepp suggests to “store snow” in your refrigerator and “think together.” I think the segment cut off right before she suggested to eat one another.
The apocalypse is here, folks. Do whatever feels best. We don’t have much time left.
