With Sandy now combined with both a severe winter storm, and now the blast of very frigid arctic air, combined with them all converging at New York during hi tide.....well you see where i am going with this.

Flooded New York city, with a severe arctic blast, and a severe winter storm seems to fit the same picture as the scenario in the movie to me.

What are your thoughts ATS?

I think Sandy is a very nasty storm.

It is not the end of the world, unless you live in that area, then it sure could seem that way right now.

I'm in queens ...and yes it's windy and yes there are some downed trees but it's really not that bad. I drove down to the beach earlier this afternoon and the water was up to the boardwalk. Which would be about 50 yards of beach.
But again it's really not that bad.

I have been driving around and nothing really seemed to be a major castastrophe ...sorry guys no doom porn to report.

Sorry guys, I am having internet difficulties at the moment, it just took me 10 minutes to get the page to refresh so i could see a response to respond to.

I couldn't imagine how this is effecting everyone in NY, as all their mass transit is down, and they dont have personal cars for the most part, so walking anywhere in this mess must suck alot.

No, it's more like the X-men without the Mutants.

Very good point Ben, but the severe winter storm is just now setting in, they already have a crane broken in Time Square, and a building facade has collapsed on 8th avenue and Chelsey street, and a scafold collapse in mid town.

I am just curious what you think the result will be after the ice begins to stick on everything that was weakened from the winds.

Could you give us an update after about 8:30, that is the time they are predicting the storm surge to come in, that is what i am the most concerned about, flooding during a severe winter storm just seems to be about the worst case scenario.


update- now they have cut off the power into parts of lower Manhattan.

It isnt over yet, the reports i am seeing are saying Long island is now experiencing major flooding, some of the buildings on the shore have up to 6 feet of water in the ground floors of the structures.

Parts of lower Manhattan are now out of power for at least a week, all the mass transit systems are down, and the subways have begun to flood with sea water.

This is only the beginning, we still have around an hour until the storm surge even hits.

Thanks, in these harsh times it always helps to research things. Especially since the people don't know what will transpire after this event.

Firstly, TDAT was a supercell that formed over the land, three separate storms. One was over Canada, one was Europe, and the third was Siberia. Secondly, the temps are not dropping to -178. Thirdly, of course you can compare it to the movie A Perfect Storm. That movie was based off of a storm that hit in 1991. It did not make landfall though.
