The horror! The horror!
All morning I watched a news caster yelling "Another rescue going on!" get the camera on that!
They were walking boats out with people in them in one to two feet of water! it is not freezing cold either for those that talk hypothermia.
The sand fence is still up on the beach, the beach front houses are intact in NJ, they kept up a headline...BOARDWALK DAMAGED! Our walks disappear
every year, we have to put them back after each winter pretty much.
They made a big deal of the trees downed, every winter we have hundreds of trees fall, everyone keeps a chainsaw and ready to cut a tree to get to
Yes it is hyped, the docks are intact the main damage was to little islands and only people doing dumb stuff were hurt.
The main tragic part of the storm is damage to sewer and water utilities as far as what i have seen. Hoping Nuke plants are all ok.
Big storm yes, not fun being without water and electric but it is not as bad as they are saying in terms of damage. It could have been way worse.
