So far in Rhode Island, we have high wind warnings and a forcast of rain for the next 5 days. In my area, we're usually lucky and not without power for very long. Hope this storm isn't too bad for people.

I think the media is pumping this whole thing up.

As far as that video clip of the flying cow.. that is a scene from the movie "Twister". It is not real.

Funny that someone from Louisiana would come out on ATS and say that the media is pumping up what will probably be the worst hurricane to hit the northeast in recorded history.

I live right on the edge of the Catskill and the Hudson Valley in NY. Irene really rocked us last year and then Lee did considerable damage as well.

We already have high rivers (the Delaware, in particular) and the storm will be hitting around the same time as max high tide.

They have started evacuating lower Manhattan.

This storm is going to be catastrophic.

So what happens to the election if large parts of several swing states are without power on election day?

Paper ballots? Maybe Mittens' plan to buy up the company that control the voting booth machines will backfire as everyone votes with good old fashioned paper and pencil.

Will they be able to get ballots out in time?


it'll be president mittens in a voter suppressed, hurricane enhanced landslide....with real live landslides!

Are you seriously bringing up the elections while 60 million Americans are about to get blasted by a storm of epic proportions?

I am so sick and god damned tired of politics because everyone is brainwashed by the charade. Guess what. Regardless of who wins or not, our country WON'T GET ANY BETTER!!

Especially with a $15+ billion repair bill after this storm is all said and done.

Well Said!
The elections are just a distraction for the oblivious anyway.. sad part is, no matter who would get elected we are still screwed, will be for years, besides like it or not obummer is going to get it, look at history.

People need to focus on the things they can control and help with.

The problem in the northeast is that there are a lot of hills and valleys.
Hurricanes on the gulf coast drop a lot of water but the terrain is mostly flat and water is dispersed over a large area.
In the northeast the water runs off of high ground and is funneled through narrow valleys and waterways.
This causes a lot of localized damage and makes it hard to do recovery because much of the older construction and roadways are in these narrow valleys and low spots.
Manhattan has a lot of railway, tunnels, sewage and infrastructure below sea level and a lot of water will be funneled down the Hudson. Along with high tides and storm surge this can be a bad combination as well.

Hopefully this is a lot of worry over what will end up being just an inconvenience but the safe thing to do would be to take precautions.

Can you do a separate thread on all the feeds as well as news sources for each area? That would be a great resource about now. Police scanner too!

Right on Deny ignorance and all. There are professionals on this and one amateur is not going to go viral unless they get killed while being a jackass.

The winds are picking up and the sound of the sets coming in are like nothing I have ever heard, just constant with no break. Very very scary. Like a real Halloween spooky effect. Unreal.

Thanks for that! It is so cool that in modern times we can actually sit in our lounge chair and on our big flat panel television we can watch live events like this. It is comforting too that in an ELE we will have front row seats.

"obummer"?

Yeah - - there's the way to respect the innocent people caught in this storm.

Gotta get your dig in - - right?

No need for a separate thread, let's keep all the resources here...

Dr. Jeff Masters from wunderground.com is taking this storm very seriously. Here are a couple of blurbs from his blog that sums up the dire situation.


Hurricane Sandy has changed little in intensity today, and remains a very large, powerful hurricane. Sandy is going to cause billions of dollars in damage Monday and Tuesday in the Eastern U.S. due to storm surge, high winds, and heavy rains. Sandy is of near record-size, with tropical storm-force winds extending up to 520 miles from its center, covering an area larger than a Texas-and-a-half


With a storm this massive, we should not get caught up in Cat 1, 2, tropical storm, or the predicted storm path This storm is huge, and with it comes a massive amount water, aka the storm surge. A wind field that large has the power to drive a ridiculous storm surge wherever this storm decides to make landfall.


In a poignant, powerful Public Information Statement this afternoon, the National Weather Service in New Jersey is begging that people heed warnings, and evacuate if they are asked to. They write, "If you are reluctant [to evacuate], think about your loved ones, think about the emergency responders who will be unable to reach you when you make the panicked phone call to be rescued, think about the rescue/recovery teams who will rescue you if you are injured or recover your remains if you do not survive."


The NWS in New Jersey is not taking the storm as a joke as well. Those in low lying flood prone areas near the coast should already be evacuated, or finishing up their preparations.


This afternoon's 3:30 pm EDT H*Wind analysis from NOAA's Hurricane Research Division put the destructive potential of Sandy's winds at a modest 2.8 on a scale of 0 to 6. However, the destructive potential of the storm surge was record high: 5.8 on a scale of 0 to 6.This is a higher destructive potential than any hurricane observed since 1969, including Category 5 storms like Katrina, Rita, Wilma, Camille, and Andrew. The previous highest destructive potential for storm surge was 5.6 on a scale of 0 to 6, set during Hurricane Isabel of 2003. Sandy is now forecast to bring a near-record storm surge of 6 - 11 feet to Northern New Jersey and Long Island Sound, including the New York City Harbor. This storm surge has the potential to cause many billions of dollars in damage if it hits near high tide at 9 pm EDT on Monday. The full moon is on Monday, which means astronomical high tide will be about 5% higher than the average high tide for the month. This will add another 2 - 3" to water levels.



... If the peak surge arrives near Monday evening's high tide at 9 pm EDT, a portion of New York City's subway system could flood, resulting in billions of dollars in damage. I give a 50% chance that Sandy's storm surge will end up flooding a portion of the New York City subway system.


Source: www.wunderground.com...

With that being said this storm has the possibility to cause catastrophic damage. I'm hoping that the models are incorrect and dry air and wind sheer weakens the storm, but the conditions are right for the storm to maintain hurricane strength until landfall.

Everyone be safe out there.

There actually were a few threads about this going.
But the more warning that people have, the better.
