No, a hurricane would not survive even as a tropical storm over land that long, especially over the Adirondacks...you'll be fine.

Cat 2 and a million flee

I never want to hear about new jersey being tough...a cat 2 hurricane is kite flying weather in florida!

Anyhow, by the time it hits new jersey, it will be a cat 1...aka, a rainstorm with some slightly stronger than normal winds. They expecting zombies with the rain or something? bah.
A hurricane hitting florida, the US generally just gives a thumbs up and says good luck...happens anywhere else and they flip out. Perhaps the northern areas are made out of straw and gum or something.

For anyone in the affected areas, read this guy's post and disregard the rest of the thread

What gets me, is that as normal, the USA media is jumping up and down with HOURS of coverage about what will probably be a category 1 storm hitting New York City and Washington DC amongst others, possibly a Category 2 storm hitting Charleston etc.

There's barely been a mention in the news of the damage already done and the lives taken by what was a Category 3 storm as it went across some of the poorest countries in the Caribbean.

As usual, the US media is "all about US" and they wonder how the "me generation" was created?

While I would agree with you if you were talking about a cat1 hitting florida where they are much more common, a cat1 in a region like the tri state with 6x the population density, I have to disagree :/

Pretty much right...

Look, I'm glad people are taking it seriously...but I think this is being blown WAY out of proportion.... Then again, better safe than sorry I suppose, but I wonder if the cure is worse than the disease here.

The problems caused by evacuating that many people are likely going to lead to additionally, more losses of property (maybe even life), than if they all just huddled down.

Just to reiterate - the evacuation in question is on a small ISLAND. It is not for the entire city of New Jersey!! Cape May county is on a little island - so let's not make a mountain out of a mole hill. Thanks.

1) 60million people who never seen a hurricane IRL, vs 5million who are used to them
2) Talk next time you guys in florida get 1-2 inches of snow and get road closures for days vs getting a 12+ inches up here and still going to work/school.

Sorry, I know that was offensive and rude, but I see absolutely no benefit in the existence of that show.

My company (major financial) is already on standby for activating a DR in case many people cannot make it in to work on Monday. I guess we'll see if it's all hype or not.




HK........ that's the pot calling the kettle Black isn't it ???????

I know 'Jersey Shore' is obviously a pile of crap but also don't forget that the Financial world and those who parade around in it are also full of Cr*p too.........

HOWEVER ''BE SAFE'' this weekend ....

Thanks you too... well, unfortunately I'm not one of the people making tons of $$ from all of this; I'm an ordinary, middle class, IT infrastructure guy. The finance depts see us as expense and treat us accordingly so.

New York was hit with Hurricane Carl last year and that was a Category 2, I really don't think its going to be that bad.


I don't remember a Category 2 hurricane hitting us last year... Hurricane "Karl" from last season only affected Mexico, correct?

Well, hopefully those FEMA camps are ready to accept, feed and water all those people. Wasn't that what the preps were all about last week?

Remember Frances took so long to pass over, and there was so much rain and flooding associated with it. People do need to sandbag maybe.
Charley was Cat 1 by the time it came over us, and there were trees toppled all down some streets, and people were out of power for up to 3 weeks in some areas, and the roofers were years patching up.

Anyway NC is what's going to bear the brunt of this storm. They are just more used to this sort of thing than Jersey

NY should be taking this seriously..Its better to be safe than sorry like many were in the aftermath and during Katrina...Weather is unpredictable, even for all the weather pros out there.. Weather for us in these times that is...
I take all the warnings seriously here in East Texas, because I dont my family to have be a fatality or suffer while the gov is trying to get help to us.. Be prepared if your staying and if possible get out of there.. Its not worth it!! I have a bad feeling its going be to like Katrina, but worse.. Because it seems many think its no big deal... Way too many more people there... Even a Cat. 1 will produce some bad crap.. Be smart people, dont take a chance, it will be over soon and if its not bad, then you all go back home.. Alive..

Sky News are reporting

"Mayor of New York orders mandatory evacuation of people living in low-lying areas of the city"

thats around 250,000 people isn't it?

NBC already have an article here


Mayor Bloomberg ordered Friday that all New Yorkers living in the city's primary zone must be out by 5 p.m. Saturday.

Some 250,000 people live in the zone, which includes Battery Park City, Coney Island, Manhattan Beach, Far Rockaway and Midland Beach and South Beach in Staten Island. See the areas in orange on this map.

I am sorry to hear about you guyes trouble. I am following this throughout the weekend. What a trip to see how the hurricanes have turned their fury this season from the Gulf coast areas and have now turned their wrath upon the Eastern states.

Do we know if this is part of Global warming and the melting of the polar ice caps? It is something different for sure, even though I have seen a few major ones along Florida and east, it is far less common.

Oh also. I remember those signs they placed in NYC a few years ago which were evacuation routes, have they put those out for this event? If so, where are they sending people to shelter? We dont want another
"Dome" situation...

Aww it's not the looters, it's people competing for gas pumps at the gas stations, long lines, line jumping. People just get downright mean. Looking for an open gas station can be grueling work when gas is in high demand. Plus getting stranded in long lanes of evacuees...like in Texas.


OK the Citizen Wells site has some info on the projected path and the states it is expected to affect, at Cat 3 level when it makes landfall. People posting comments recommend taking it seriously.

I have been ready for a while now. Supplies are in order.
I am at the cusp of the Jersey shore, slightly west of Sandy Hook.
We shall see what happens.
Everyone be safe.
