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?
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.
