Why aren't they aren't a little more worried about places like Long Island.

Sure the current model is predicting it won't directly hit this area, but models aren't 100% accurate. The current path is something like 50-100 miles from land - which is very close.

I wonder if the area is just too populated and they figure there is no way to evacuate that many people, so it's just better to down play the risk?

Here's a out there theory, what if they can manipulate the weather (at least somewhat), and they know the current system in the West will push Earl out east. It seems pretty coincidental the Western system just happens to be in the right place at the right time.

Oh boy. My DH flew into MacArthur, around midnight tonight. The hotel is pretty far into Long Island, and of course I'm worried. His return flight isn't until Friday, and we have travel plans for early Saturday (family vacation).

I had a sliver of hope that his trip would be postponed. I tried to tell him that he'd be in a bad position, if held up in a hotel during an emergency. All the locals will be too caught up in their own preparations, than to have to worry about his welfare. (by 'locals', I'm referring to his clients and teams that he is in town to visit)

Last I saw, LI was in a Storm warning, while Martha's Vineyard was issued a Hurricane warning. I'm confused, as I figured Long Island would be in the storms path before MV. Is this because the eye of the hurricane would be further in the Atlantic and LI would only be hit with the storm's outer layer? If so, this is where I'm confused, wouldn't the storm weaken as it traveled north along the coast?

Since I'm in the Midwest, I'm not getting the sense of urgency and local updates. I'm pretty much going by what is being posted here. THANK YOU, btw, SO MUCH for the updates. I'll check out the weather channel, but I'm sure I'll get better info here.

How bad with the damage from this hurricane be in comparison to Hurricane Katrina? From what I'm reading from various threads on ATS and on the news, this hurricane is massive, but I'm not hearing nearly the hype I heard for Katrina. In fact, I don't even see a thread on the front page of ATS about it, so I'm wondering if it's being "underhyped" or it's really not that bad.

Hurricanes don't have to be the same size to do damage.

It depends on how fast they are moving, the terrain, etc.

Katrina caused problems because the Louisiana sold off the wetlands. Camille 40+ years ago was a much stronger storm then Katrina.

In fact, they say Camille killed more people then Katrina because most folks remember Camille not doing so much. Forward 40 years of developement and you got Katrina.

Pluse Katrina came inland. Which stalls them. Like a wave hitting the beach.


We have had hurricanes roll through here and nothing but a bad rainy day. Then we had a tropical storm wreak havok. Why?

Because it was slow. So instead of rushin through and being gone in 12 hours, it tooks its time and dumped wind and rain for 3 days.

Earl is a very fast storm. It will be quick, and it might now have time to do as much damage.

Though I admit, storms usual use their zest going north, and this thing got stronger. So who knows.

Good Morning Folks. I awoke to a red sky. Now it is an ominous pink/orange on the horizon. They are playing it down because of the Holiday weekend I think and also because of their uncertainty still of Earls course.

Latest is 7 million in harms way. I expect evacutaion numberst to grow by leaps and bounds during today and tonight all up the eastern seaboard.

Airlines have started changing reservations along the coast for free.

If you are planning to get on a plane to come to the northeast today or have a reservation - change your plan!!!! The airline will work with you!!!!

If you are on an Island - any Island on the northeastern seaboard - get off!!!

Emergency preparations should be rushed to completion now!!!

Edit - for evacuations - sorry - came through wrong

This is the current map. Be advised that these winds will be moving inland as Earl approaches - then - up the coast. Even if you are not on the shore, you need to be prepare. This monster is massive. - take the center of the color image and bring it into shore to see how far inland the winds will be

Including Long Island? Any thoughts, experience, or opinions on the LI area?

I'm thinking that LI would be tough to leave, in the event of an evacuation (whether mandatory or voluntary), due to 'bottle-necking' of traffic.

Heck, the L.I.E. is horrible on normal days, especially on holiday weekends. Could you imagine how it'd be in an emergency evacuation?


Wow, I just got the chills. thinking about the catastrophe an evac of LI would cause. It would probably mean thousands stuck, stranded on the expressway, during the worst of the storm. Anything outside of 48 hours would be too little time to evacuate the area.

Could this be why it's being downplayed in the area? Or, is it simply not so much of a threat to LI and NYC? I mean, aren't they advising Martha's Vineyard to evacuate?

I lived in Montauk, LI several years back for a few years. The thread to Long Island is not as great as it is to the "Outer Islands" The End - Montauk as they call it is most venerable as it is on the tip. Let us just hope that Earl sticks in the projected path. I think those on the inner and middle end of Long Island will see Major wind and dangerous surf and need to be prepared for power outages - but they will not see the brunt of the storm. - No, I could not imagine trying to evacuate Long Island. I do imagine it may be possible with this storm that Sunrise Highway in Amigansit may flood and make Montauk it's own Island.

They have not as yet ordered evacuations to Martha's Vineyard. I highly doubt the will do this. I do not know how they could do that - they only have so many ferry's

“They really need to focus today on what they're going to do before the storm gets there," Fugate said. "Implement your plans and be ready to heed evacuation orders."

“With the storm expected to start hitting North Carolina later in the day, officials expanded mandatory evacuation orders across new areas of the state's low-lying barrier islands.”

Below is a link to another article and if you scroll a bit more then half way down the page they have another interactive hurricane tracker.

My thoughts are with all those people.

Here's some information that might help out.



And Earl could get larger. The storm appears set to undergo a process called eyewall replacement -– common to major tropical cyclone, notes Dr. Read.

Essentially, the existing eye vanishes after being surrounded by another wall of rainclouds. This outer wall becomes a new eye, with a larger diameter. That has the effect of pushing tropical-storm and hurricane-force winds further toward the storm's edges than they had been.

Thus, FEMA's Mr. Fugate urges, "don't focus on the skinny black line" on federal storm-tracking maps. "This is not a point on a map."

Last night, even though Earl had yet to reach North Carolina, President Obama declared a federal state of emergency for the state.

PLUS, two tropical waves, with a 40% and a 20% chance of formation respectively.


With all of that stuff posted....Today is going to be a rough day for the NE. People in that area MUST keep an eye on DUke Earl. Just because he is not coming onshore until probably Nova Scotia, does not mean that tornadoes will not affect your area.

Also, those in Nova Scotia, get ready to do whatever is neccessary.

PLEASE keep posting anything new on these storms. I am still worried about higher wind gusts hitting some of the Metro areas in the NE, and also there is always a strong chance for tornadoes with a system like this one.
