Talk about scaring people. Who needs doomer and gloomers when you have the government to do it for you? We can all make a worst case scenerio but is this actually the time to show it?

Extremely grim. Lets hope it doesn't get that bad.

Hard to believe that some people are refusing to evacuate. I would be so out of there......

Just in case.

They shouldn't post stuff like that.

There's a lot of people that would LOVE to see Wall Street 'go under.'

Wall Street under water, imagine that.

My sister lives in Connecticut right on the cost and she said that all the stores are pretty much empty there. I am sure New York is the same.

I am very worried that she is not really taking the threat serious and doesn't have a bug out bag prepared just in case. That is really reckless of her and she has a 2 year old son. I would have had everything ready to go at first word that it may hit! I would much rather have one and nothing happens then not have one and something does.

I live about 4 hours north of NYC. When I was in a home improvement store last night, the workers said that people from the city were coming in and buying generators and stuff to take back home with them. I would rather not stay if I were one who lived in the city. I'm already a little nervous up here where I am.

Thank you so much for that cam link!

As always, ATS is polarized on this issue. So many people saying Doom and Gloom, and so many saying lets throw a party.

I just posted this in one of the other numerous threads exploding around here on Irene cause everyone in that thread kept saying this storm is all BS hype:

"While I do agree with a lot of the posts on here, I think this will be a bad storm.

Yes, it is not a Cat 5, and will prob only be be a Cat 1 by the time it reaches NY, but I remember hearing several times that wind speed of hurricanes is greatly magnified at higher altitudes. When I think of all of the very tall buildings along the East coast, especially NY, it makes me wonder what a Cat 1 is going to be like for people who live in buildings over 10 or 20 stories.

Oops...confirmation...Jim Cantore on the Weather channel just said what I was typing here. A Cat 1 at ground level, is a Cat 2 or 3 higher up. Think about it sheeple!!!! Say it hits NY with only 70 mph winds...sustained 100 mph winds at the 50th or 100th floor in NY for hours on end can not be a good thing. Glass storm raining down maybe?

My other concern is the electrical grid of the East coast. How many times over the years has brown outs, or outages in one area, affected other nearby areas? Lots.

It is not the strength of this storm that is the concern, it is the fact that no buildings are built to hurricane code in the NE, that many coastal areas dont have any type of protective barriers, that the electrical grid is at serious risk, and the FACT that this storm is over 800 miles in diameter. Even if it picks up speed, it takes a long time for a storm of this size to pass. Tornadoes in NY, Philly, Boston, Atlantic City? Think about it.

My bottom line is this...don't believe the gloom and doom hype, but dont believe the idiots that say this isnt going to bad either. Prepare as if it is going to be horrible, and party on if it ends up being nothing...be safe, not stupid!"

Scared? These are New Yorkers, they don't really scare, and if anything they just get even
.

Seriously, though, I was here on 9/11, in Manhattan. There was no mass panic. I watched the second tower fall on a TV inside a diner in Mid-town and people were stunned and sad, but not going crazy. People will deal with this just fine the way they did on that day.

I'm at one of the highest points in the city in Brooklyn, and a block away is one of the schools designated as an evacuation center, so I'm not too worried for myself. Even so, I've stocked up on essentials and have my "go bag" ready with first aid, water, powerbars, flashlight and a few other things.

Coastal geologist Nick Coch, himself a New Yorker, says that a major hurricane could have catastrophic effects.

"Because the most dangerous thing in New York is the New Yorker," he said. "And the New Yorker thinks they've been tested by everything, but very few New Yorkers have been in the eye of a hurricane and know how uncontrollable the energy is."

For years, Coch has been sounding the alarm about how vulnerable New York City is because of its topography. He says storm surges could trigger massive flooding in low-lying areas, particularly lower Manhattan – even if the city is spared a direct hit.


I'm wondering if this is why they did this article, for those in the danger area who are of this mindset?

That could be a real issue if things are bad enough, if the island gets cut off. Fortunately, Manhattan will have a minimal amount of people on it when the storm hits - people are leaving and its the weekend not the workday when Manhattan swells to something like 11-13 million people, but still there's like 1.6 million people who live there, so it's likely well over a million will still be there if/when it hits. That's a lot of mouths to feed. But at Cat.2, which is the worst it will be when it hits, I doubt we'll see the George Washington Bridge coming down, or anything. The Lincoln and Holland tunnels may flood, but there will be ways to supply the place, I'm sure.
