interesting unphased, i am on a sailboat, in fells point bmore, wind is rocking it now.
everyone should keep in mind sandy is proceding East of the chesapeake, which runs north and south.
this means that the counter clockwise hurricane circulation will push water south in the chesapeake and out to sea, so the tide will be low.
I know, full moon high tide, that will be eliminated.
also the storm surge of a hurrican is on the North side as it comes ashore, around atlantic city.
say winds are 90, headway is 30, so 120 mph is pushing water ashore. so there really is a dangerous storm surge north of the eye.
But on the south side, 90 minus 30 mpy or 60 mph is pushing water out to sea.
the fear mongering media find this too complicated.too explain. city hall has taken the opportunity to take 500 from each car that gets towed in the none existant flood zone.
