SHIP BOTTOM, N.J. (AP) - Forget distinctions like tropical storm or hurricane. Don't get fixated on a particular track. Wherever it hits, the rare behemoth storm inexorably gathering in the eastern U.S. will afflict a third of the country with sheets of rain, high winds and heavy snow, say officials who warned millions in coastal areas to get out of the way.

"We're looking at impact of greater than 50 to 60 million people," said Louis Uccellini, head of environmental prediction for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

As Hurricane Sandy barreled north from the Caribbean - where it left nearly five dozen dead - to meet two other powerful winter storms, experts said it didn't matter how strong the storm was when it hit land: The rare hybrid storm that follows will cause havoc over 800 miles from the East Coast to the Great Lakes. "This is not a coastal threat alone," said Craig Fugate, director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

I have been keeping close tabs on any and all news on this storm, and the more I hear, the more worried I become. My husband is an OTR truck driver out on the east coast, and is currently headed north from Strasburg, Va up to Connecticut, with a stopover in Georgetown, De. His boss has told him repeatedly that it's not going to be that bad and that he has nothing to worry about, yet there are evacuations all along the coast, and several places have declared states of emergency ahead of the storm.
Am I being overly concerned, or is it sane to be losing sleep over this?

I don't think my husband should be taking the risk, but I can't convince him that it's better to be safe and piss off his boss, than be sorry.

Stay safe mate! obviously being well prepared brings nothing to worry about,

I do ask for a small favor if you accept the challenge if you are up to it, If something EVER go's wrong & outside your house it looks terrifying.. Could you record what ever happens during the terrifying moment? Depending on how good the quality & what happens during the recording, I have connections that will be able to forward your video to online media across the internet as an example of what a citizen went through.

The last thing you should be doing is encouraging people to get video and pictures etc when all hell is breaking loose. I would think that a person should be thinking about safety not sensationalizing disaster.for your benefit so you can POST IT ACROSS the net. This storm has already killed 43 people on its way to the coast. Thats how people get into trouble by not using their heads but rather sticking them out in the face of danger. Stupidity.

Yeah, you are right. Just happens that I'll be monday afternoon on the road, trying to find a way back home, so it will be unavoidable for me to be in the middle of the mess. Camera, Iphone and my 4x4 truck ready.

The reason to declare state of emergency ahead of time is not always related to massive damage.
A lot of the times it is done in order to have the funding there and already approved to help should
the need arise.
They cut the red tape early so if/when things go bad, they already have the funds to jump in and
do what ever is needed to help without worrying about going broke.

So just because they declared state of emergency dosent mean things are going south fast.

Although i do agree, he should be home, this looks like a nasty storm, as a ex otr driver, i am not sure i
would want to be out there in a storm like this one. I think i would call dispatch and let them know i was
taking time off and be done with it.. better safe than sorry. Hope he stays safe and comes home to you
unharmed in anyway.

I don't think this is getting the media attention it deserves?...

I found the story here Source

This worries me:



President Barack Obama was monitoring the storm and working with state and locals governments to make sure they get the resources needed to prepare, administration officials said




"It's really frightening," Alice Stockton-Rossi said. "But you know how many times they tell you, 'This is it, it's really coming and it's really the big one' and then it turns out not to be? I'm afraid people will tune it out because of all the false alarms before ... (but) this one might be the one."


If government officials have been monitoring this for sometime and aren't prepared to highlight the issue formally as a matter of urgency through their media outlets, how do they expect the general public to take this seriously? And at the same time professionals are adamant that this is the real deal...
