I posted this as a response on another thread but thought it was in the wrong area. Excuse me if it still is.
The MSM is covering Hurricane earl and have not raised any alarms. I would say that they don't want to cause a panic which I understand. The
projected path shows it could hit NYC on friday. That 3 1/2 days from now. I would think that they might be a little concerned about this. Are they
going to wait until thursday to see if its going to come close? You cannot evacuate NYC even if you started now. It just seems funny that this isn't
mentioned. It makes sense to me and if I have thought of this then I guarantee someone who does this for a living has. The links below show some
Heres a link that allows you to see the effect of the rise in sea level for an area. You can see the areas that are flooded would be cut off from an
evacuation. The front island that are cut off would be a total loss.
Heres a link of what would happen if a hurricane struck NY city. Basically says that a cat 3 storm would cutoff many major roads. Those that are
cutoff would be underwater.
Heres some stats about NY city in a hurricane. Read through it and look at the part that talks about the Verrazano and George Washington bridge being
closed down due to its height.
Thanks and would appreciate any responses, if anyone has knowledge of this, as to when the NHC would start to raise some alarms.
