Think long term in worst case scenario of the effects this could have to national security this could have in relation to our military.From what i gather we have many assets in the area that could be out of commission for a while. No need for details on that but hopefully leaders are thinking outside the box on this one. Coupled with the ramping up of tensions with syria we could be vulnerable is steps are not taken.

Pine trees? I'm surprised. I had four ancient pines removed two years ago. I kept wishing that a storm would take them down but no luck. I had to pay a grand each to get them removed.
Pines have deep tap roots. I watched them sway fifteen degrees and not fall over or break during storms.
I am expecting that there will be a lot of upended deciduous trees. They are all still full of leaves and the ground is already soaked. Broken trees can indicate a tornado.
