It amazes me how many waited until the day before to try and do something when they knew days in advance this storm was coming.From what I am reading the two most important things in NYC is Electricity Generation and Food.
Get that preppers?
I hope those people get some relief soon.
My understanding is that storm was some 1000 miles across. I don't recall ever hearing about one that size either.I come from NYC. Lived in Rockaway Beach. We have had hurricanes in the past and we made it through. Flooding was normal along the coast. I think people didn't realize just how powerful this one was. It was a combination of a N'orEaster and Hurricane. It's the biggest storm I've ever seen in my lifetime.
Like why am I surprised. Years ago my brother had a flat on the Belt Parkway up there. A car pulls up behind him and starts jacking up the other end. My brother yells "what are you doing", the guy yells back "you take that one, we'll take the other 3" LOL my brother chased them off with a tire iron.ALL the things you wont hear about on tv, I seen it for myself after katrina,.
human nature says we protect and take care of each other.
Mother nature says human nature, family visits, and fish begin to go bad after 3 days, LOL
