From Fox news
Cell phone coverage may be disrupted/
Atlantic City closing for the first time ever
Over 2000 flights canceled over several different carriers
All public transportation closed in NYC for the first time ever
States of Emergency declared in a number of states before the hurricane even made landfall.
Warnings that electricity will be disrupted
Obama cutting vacation short
They also mentioned (though only once or twice) that 101,000 National Guard troops were ready to go. That seems like an awfully big number to me.
Plus there is the evacuation of 40 US Warships.
Maybe they are just preparing to keep people safe but something smells fishy to me.
