I'm in north New Jersey. I plan on using this as an excuse to skip class, providing my professors don't already cancel class.

Schools around here already canceled school for Monday.

I'm in the Bronx. f*ck it. I'll just wait and see.

If you're being told to evacuate by the NYPD or FDNY, then just do it.

They are really saying that? Everyone around me is staying. I'm actually scared now. I do have a fall out shelter tho.

Fallout shelters, although they are my absolute dream possession, will kill you when the storm surge comes. Hopefully your area isn't under a warning for storm surges. I think your best option would be to evacuate. Those Cold War era fallout shelters are only good for advance warning terrorist attacks and tornadoes.

Storm shelter/fallout shelter is a real bad idea.

 

The only thing that can help you from storm surge is high elevation. The winds can be pretty bad and may cause a tornado or two but I have only

seen tornadoes near the eye. Plus once the eye passes by the winds will be in the opposite direction witch really screws things up and cause more damage.

 

Hope everyone up north stays safe though, especially to anyone who riding it out.

Thank you but it doesn't work for me. I have no where to go anyway( to be honest I hate leaving people here behind) pretty confused at what to do. I'm actually more concerned for my friend. She's hospitalized upstate and I haven't been able to reach her.

The area around Schoharie was hit worst during Irene last year.

Take your precautions and follow civil defense information and you'll make it out just fine.

 

EVERYONE: A story is about to unfold that you'll proudly be telling to your children and your grandchildren. Follow the instructions of local authorities and as I said, you have an excess of 99% chance of survival.

Yea, I just spoke to someone and they said not to worry. It's usually people near the coast that get hit the hardest. I'll try to take some pics near my area too, maybe a video as well.

It's usually dark around this time tho. I'm pretty excited yet worried about the people that are going to get hit.

Haha. Wait till the winds started picking up.

 

Creepiest part at night when you have no lights, house is making noises, things are banging ageist your windows at 80+ mph winds.

Especially those little fetter bands after the eye where its all clam and then its starts all over again. suicidal.gif

 

-----

dre if you don't live near the coast then you really don't have anything to worry about. I think the worst part is just being scared of the wind. The thought is always

in your head that something might happened but hell as long as you don't have to worry about the storm surge you'll alright. Just get prepared and stay up to date with the news.

I'm in Staten Island(NYC), and depending where you are, you have to evacuate. I'm just 3 blocks or so from the mandatory evacuation zone. Luckily I live on a hill.

 

NYC is gonna get the north east part of the storm, which is the worse area and has the potential for tornado's. Here's a map of our landscape.

Due to the angle we are on I believe we have the worse area for a storm surge in the world, or one of the worse. We are at a full moon cycle which means high tide is 5-6 feet higher then usual, and the storm surge is predicted to be 11-13 feet here. So that's 16-18 feet at worse, that is not good. Most of the area you see is at sea level or below, especially Lower Manhattan. This storm has some serious potential to wreck NYC.

 

EDIT: By most of the area at sea level or below I mean generally for most areas a mile or so and closer from the beach. Not all of NYC obviously.

someone to give a explanation for this.

They're just coincidences, eventually the hurricane ends up lingering for so long in the ocean that it makes landfall at night, it could also have to do with the change of atmospheric currents and temperature. Stay safe everyone, I believe once it landfalls, the hurricane will immediately weaken into a tropical storm, dissipating thereafter, but there's still a lot of rain to go through.

Your the first person I see to post something like this lol. cookie.gif

 

That's the biggest thing.. preparing to be out of power for a couple of days. If you don't have supplies then well best of luck you ya.

Plus you have to realize that store won't even be open for a few days after the storm. I know in the south since its normal to us

we kinda have plans in placed so a day after the storm our stores are backing kicking and our power company are working on lines

but I take it would be different for up north.

 

I'm kinda lost with the 10 states are at a state of emergency. Just seen that on the news and kinda though it was crazy...

I don't want to sound rude or anything but its expected. I mean whats new you know.

 

The worst part is down here last storm we had one town that never flooded... every and a levee flooded so everyone was

unprepared and people was calling the news station telling them that they were stuck in the attacks and such.

 

Like I said earlier though, I'm from the south and its a walk in the park when it comes to storm. Its a life style to us and that's how you have to look at it.

I accuracy laugh watching the news and seeing people panic up north when y'all have a storm come thru. No offense... but the sh*t is funny.
