    years ago about the NYC MOLE PEOPLE and I was ecen speaking to a friend about them wondering the exact same thing: WHAT HAPPENED TO THE MOLE PEOPLE when the NYC subway flooded? And I was also sadly imagining that there are countless bodies dead drowned in those NYC tunnels. 

    And what about the water they are pumping out of those tunnels? Where are they pumping it to? That water is contaminated with who knows what chemicals, diseases and mold? Remember that they banned spitting in the subways because of the diseases that were being spread down there, and those tunnels have had over 100 years to accumulate and fester!!! And now with the water flooding, that mold is gonna get much worse.

    You know, they use Ozone in airplanes to sanitize the oxygen to cut down on the spread of disease. I wonder of they could use that in the NYC subway systems?
