Is it me or is the government/media TRYING to get people scared or freaked out about the weather? Honestly, first there was Irene. I was tracking the story from the moment it started and I swear to god I really saw articles with people being quoted saying things like "We're going to be flooded for years" and "It's going to cause BILLIONS of dollars in damage". The hurricane was supposedly SO TERRIBLE that there were evacuations, transport services where shut down, and the national guard was activated BEFORE the hurricane even hit land.
What do you people think is going on, if anything at all?
