It's probably been mentioned downthread but, the National Weather Service decided to name winter storms about a week before Sandy.
What's odd to me is somebody had a thread a day or so ago referring to this storm as "Bree" and I didn't know where that name came from. All the
winter storms have Greek Gods and Goddesses names.
I am glad this is a conspiracy forum. That's all I'm saying.
It may come in handy down the line.
Actually the National Weather Service is against the naming of storms. Even sent out a directive that the names not be used in any of their
The naming of storms is a Weather Channel thing. I think they did it for social media reasons, but they are also stating it has to do with the fact
that Europe has named winter storms for years now.
Thank you so much for this clarification. Very interesting and presumptuous of TWC.
Of course, they are part of a huge conglomerate now and multi-media empire.
Also thanks to the OP for his eye witness account.
I have to tell you that I find the scattered randomness of the storm to be strange.
You find pockets of heavier damage in tropical hurricanes from the spawning of tornadoes.
But this, some gusts of 70-80 miles an hour does not comport with the storm damage.
Nor does the inconsistency of tidal surge and alleged tidal surge.
While you are out and about, would you see if you see damage that might have originated inland from water mains and flooded outward to the coasts?
I am talking huge underground water tunnels that might have been opened ahead of this storm.
It relates to the flooding in Lower Manhattan of the FED building where the Gold is allegedly stored underground.
How far down? I have no idea where the vaults are and whether or not there are tunnels below that even.
Also the damaging of billions of dollars worth of stock certificates allegedly a few blocks over.
I think the issue is that the same aforementioned Weather Channel indicated to viewers via a staged highwater mark consisting of yellow lawn leaves in
a very thin line and 3 2X6s. But only a few yards in from the Battery Park waterfront. Not at all in keeping with being responsible for the supposed
height of water rushing over to flood the miles of subways and subterranean vaults.
Any odd inconsistencies that you have seen please let us know.
There was a poster here who said the damage to her area was from these water mains hours before the storm.
I wanted to know if it was linked to any other locations.
