My sides, my sides, I can't...I just can't. Keep this on the NWO boards or head over to prisonplanet.

Anyways, Philadelphia here. Just a lot of rain and wind right now, classes and work cancelled for a few days. I heard it's getting upgraded to a Category 2! Crazy. I'm expecting things to get ridiculous tonight around 8:00pm. No water, just a bunch of gatorade hahaha. Worst survivalist ever here. I'm not in the best area though in off-campus housing but I do have my friends Beretta and Ruger in case things get strange around here.

Anyways, anyone can say whatever they want - but all we can really do is wait and see tonight. Be calm, be safe, and enjoy the soothing sounds of rain.

I'd enjoy it if you could please continue giving updates from the Philadelphia are and anyone else in that are as well. My best friend is in Westchester right now and I want to know how bad things are out there to have peace of mind in knowing that she is safe and sound.

1. Sandy is a 2000 mile storm. Name some storms as large as Sandy in the Atlantic Basin this large that has made landfall.


Sandy is not a 2000 mile storm. If this was the case, it would cover most of the US. The US coast to coast is 2900 miles.


2. The wind field of Sandy extends 525 miles from the center, once again I ask you to find some storms with a wind field this large that have made landfall in the Atlantic Basin.


The wind field is a bit misleading. The hurricane force winds extend 175 miles from the eye, while tropical storm winds extend 485 miles from the eye. So we are not talking about feeling the full force of the wind 500 miles out. Keeping in mind, tropical storm force winds covers a range from 39mph to 73 mph. The US experiences these types of wind gust routinely.


3. Yes all cyclones weaken when they hit land, but the low pressure doesn't go anywhere and when it interacts with the Arctic air mass with all of the instability and moisture fueling it from the Atlantic, it will be a severe Nor'Easter event.


I think you have been watching "The Perfect Storm" movie one too many times. A Nor'Easter is very literally a winter hurricane. It shares many of the same characteristics of a hurricane, including rotation of the storm system and an eye. One storm system will not feed the other.


A similar event occurred back in 1993, but it was sub-tropical low not a Hurricane, and more of a blizzard than a typical Nor'Easter, which caused $6.6 billion dollars of damage. I don't like using Wiki as a source, but the sources listed in the article are legit, and it's centralized so I did anyway


What you are attempting to compare this to is like comparing apples to oranges, and again, I never said there will be no damage. I have been very clear on the economic or monetary results.


4. On top of that when is the last time a storm that produced a storm surge this high has hit a populated Northeaster corridor.


I am glad you asked this question, it may help to give us all some perspective. Considering the storm surge is projected to be 6-11 feet the answer would be Hurricane Isabel in 2003 which brought a storm over 8 feet to the Chesapeake Bay region which extended from Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and Washington, D.C.

We can also compare it to the New England Hurricane of 1938 known as "The Long Island Express". It made landfall over Long Island and Connecticut as a Cat 3 hurricane and brought a storm surge of over 12 feet... which exceeds all predictions of Hurricane Sandy's storm surge.

If this has already been posted, I will gladly remove. This is the view from the ISS, the second pass over Sandy today.

Yes, but will Sandy hit Manhattan? I am thinking economical center of NY. Anyways just watching CNN and they seemed quite relaxed... Somebody told me earlier today that hundred of thousands of people in NY have been evacuated or advised to... Back to CNN now.

edit, now on CNN a picture of Manhattan and it's totally empty in the streets. Good people are leaving. Let's see what happens when Sandy really hits NY.

The current track does not appear that it will, but I would not be shocked if Manhattan feels some affect from the storm in some form.

"Millions of Americans are preparing to lose electricity as Hurricane Sandy speeds up the East Coast, but downed power lines might be the least of their worries: the projected path of the storm has Sandy hitting as many as 26 nuclear plants."

Is RT news credible? Why do they put Nuclear power stations next to the sea? Why can't rivers be used for cooling or lakes.. and if you don't have the rivers or Lakes don't build them!

Ok not level 5 but NY has a lot of sky scrapers, as far as I know the area hit by Katrina had way less.

edit, mandatory evacuation for 375k people. Hope they will just leave.

Would this be a good time for the Chinese/Russians/Iranians/North Koreans/"bitter & twisted yet to announce their hate of Western Democracy" country to invade ??

What you said would result in a weakening of Sandy when it collides with the winter storm isn't true. The cold air coming down from Canada will join Sandy along with the upper low trough coming from the west.


Sandy will weaken as a result of making landfall. That has nothing to do with colliding with the winter storm.

That being said, they systems will not feed one another, one will absorb the other. At the time that this happens, Sandy will be well over land and not over the ocean. This storm is not cruising up the coast line, it is literally coming into land.

In Rhode Island, been raining all day and very windy. Some tree branches down. Think I'll go read while I still have power, maybe take a nap. Be back later to hear how everyone's doing.

The perimeter of the storm is 2000 miles not the radius. I should be more specific.

In the Perfect Storm, several storms collided to make one super storm. In this case we have a hurricane whose low will become sub tropical with tons of moisture and interact with a Arctic air mass.

Yeah the wind field is large which is causing the massive storm surge, the winds of this system aren't going to be the major concern here, as much as the storm surge.

The 1938 "Long Island Express" was a fast mover and stronger than Sandy. It came in with a higher surge at high tide as Sandy might. The surge was much higher with this storm because of the forward velocity and higher wind speeds, but I can't say for sure or not that the volume of water in the surge will be as much as Sandy's because I don't know how far the winds spread out in the 1938 storm, but it did not linger around like Sandy will.

Yes it does and again... Katrina was a Cat 4 not a Cat 1. The wind speeds of Katrina were much much higher. If you would like to see for yourself, right now on CNN they are showing the "damage" in NYC. It is a crane, that is near the top of a skyscraper and it has "partially collapsed" and is now dangling in the wind at West 57th street.

Of course CNN right now is claiming an expected 12 foot storm surge, which is 1 foot over the maximum possible surge expected. Sadly their fear mongering just got blown as you can see people taking a stroll and even jogging at Ashley Banfield's location


Of course they just cut the interview and went to break

This is interesting, CNN red jacket lady says that the highrise buildings will be affected thusley; At 30 stories the wind speed will be at 90mph sustained and not counting in gusts. At 60 stories it will be just over 100mph sustained.

Buildings generally arent built to bend.

Sandy will linger fully over a land mass. It will no longer be fed by the ocean. Please.. look at the projected path I posted. It really does make a huge difference.

Right but it won't just dissipate as soon as it touches land, and the moisture is already there in the atmosphere it will still produce a lot of precipitation and the winds aren't going anywhere either, they'll just weaken some.

I have not suggested it will dissipate the second it touches land.

I really have no clue how to make my points any more clearer than I already have. I really wish I could.

Not true.

In Los Angeles tall buildings are built on rollers - - - so they sway intentionally.

Depends on what building - - how old - - construction of foundation.

Anyways, Philadelphia here. Just a lot of rain and wind right now, classes and work cancelled for a few days. I heard it's getting upgraded to a Category 2! Crazy. I'm expecting things to get ridiculous tonight around 8:00pm. No water, just a bunch of gatorade hahaha. Worst survivalist ever here. I'm not in the best area though in off-campus housing but I do have my friends Beretta and Ruger in case things get strange around here.

Anyways, anyone can say whatever they want - but all we can really do is wait and see tonight. Be calm, be safe, and enjoy the soothing sounds of rain.


I'd enjoy it if you could please continue giving updates from the Philadelphia are and anyone else in that are as well. My best friend is in Westchester right now and I want to know how bad things are out there to have peace of mind in knowing that she is safe and sound.


Gladly. Luckily for your friend West Chester is outside of the real line of fire. The rain picked up a lot here and by looking at the trees it seems the wind is getting nasty.
