I think you’re right. Supposedly, the effects will be from massive water, not wind.

>>>Did you just say Katrina was weak when it hit the coast? Tell that to Missippians. Wow.

Good grief. Some of you are as sensitive as lib-tards. It was banter. I wanted to say "weaker" but that didn't really fit the phrase.

And so let me do the same thing ALL conservatives have to do when they hurt the sensitive feelings of the liberals (like Akin did): I didn't mean it was weak. WEAKER. It went from a 175 mph hurricane to barely a cat 3. I am speaking, of course, about strength...not impacts.

There....FEEEEEEEL better?

Katrina for a time was a cat 5 IIRC. And yes you are correct it did weaken considerably from what it was.

But more importantly it should be noted that most of the people who died in Katrina, especially those in NO, died because they, including state and city officials didn’t take the storm seriously.

I make no claims at being a weather forcaster, but I DID noticed this....flocks of seagulls in my area arrived over the weekend. To me, that’s a sure sign of some VERY bad weather.

I live at 1500’ about 40 miles SE of Clarksburg WV at almost the southern end of the USACoE’s Pittsburgh District.

NEAR LATITUDE 36.8 NORTH...LONGITUDE 71.1 WEST. SANDY IS NOW MOVING
TOWARD THE NORTH-NORTHWEST NEAR 20 MPH...32 KM/H. A TURN TOWARD THE
NORTHWEST IS EXPECTED LATER THIS MORNING...FOLLOWED BY A TURN TOWARD
THE WEST-NORTHWEST TONIGHT. ON THE FORECAST TRACK...THE CENTER OF

STATES...INCLUDING NEW YORK CITY AND LONG ISLAND...LATER TODAY.
WINDS AFFECTING THE UPPER FLOORS OF HIGH-RISE BUILDINGS WILL BE
SIGNIFICANTLY STRONGER THAN THOSE NEAR GROUND LEVEL.
STORM SURGE...THE COMBINATION OF AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS STORM SURGE
AND THE TIDE WILL CAUSE NORMALLY DRY AREAS NEAR THE COAST TO BE
FLOODED BY RISING WATERS. THE WATER COULD REACH THE FOLLOWING
DEPTHS ABOVE GROUND IF THE PEAK SURGE OCCURS AT THE TIME OF HIGH
TIDE...

NC NORTH OF SURF CITY INCLUDING PAMLICO/ALBEMARLE SOUNDS...4 TO 6 FT
SE VA AND DELMARVA INCLUDING LOWER CHESAPEAKE BAY...2 TO 4 FT

BAY AND NARRAGANSETT BAY...3 TO 6 FT
CAPE COD TO THE MA/NH BORDER INCLUDING CAPE COD BAY...2 TO 4 FT
MA/NH BORDER TO THE U.S./CANADA BORDER...1 TO 3 FT

SURGE-RELATED FLOODING DEPENDS ON THE RELATIVE TIMING OF THE SURGE
AND THE TIDAL CYCLE...AND CAN VARY GREATLY OVER SHORT DISTANCES.
GIVEN THE LARGE WIND FIELD ASSOCIATED WITH SANDY...ELEVATED WATER
LEVELS COULD SPAN MULTIPLE TIDE CYCLES RESULTING IN REPEATED AND
EXTENDED PERIODS OF COASTAL AND BAYSIDE FLOODING. IN ADDITION...
ELEVATED WATERS COULD OCCUR FAR REMOVED FROM THE CENTER OF SANDY.
FURTHERMORE...THESE CONDITIONS WILL OCCUR REGARDLESS OF WHETHER
SANDY IS A TROPICAL OR POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE. FOR INFORMATION

5 INCHES ARE POSSIBLE FROM THE SOUTHERN TIER OF NEW YORK STATE
NORTHEASTWARD THROUGH NEW ENGLAND.

Crisis response. The admin and its media outlets did not report benghazi, so there was no need to respond, however, they have already reported that zero is balancing the campaign with responding to this natural disaster.

Panicked Evacuations Mix With Nonchalance in Hurricane Sandy’s Path

From further down the article:

Deirdre Michalopoulos, 48, who lives in a luxury condominium on a cobblestone street in Dumbo, a stone’s throw from the East River, said she and her family stayed put during Irene, to no ill effect, and would stay for Sandy too. “We live on the ninth floor, and I don’t think the water’s going to get up that high,” said Ms. Michalopoulos, who was heading out to buy supplies, and planned to pass the time cooped up inside, watching movies with her two children. “It’ll be great.”

LOL!

BTW, I’m not talking about flocks like you see at the Freshkill dump on Staten Island. The two I’ve seen (same one?) were about 40-50 strong. Still, the most I’ve seen in the 10 years I’ve lived here.

If weather impacts the Northeast, some FReepers immediately poo-poo the coverage, I guess because we are surrounded by liberals.

Live view of the New London, CT ferry shows the parking lot is already flooded. Storm surge is going to be bad along the coast.

West end of the Sound is gonna get clobbered where it narrows down to Throggs Neck. With the time difference in tides between the Battery and Willetts Point, the East River might be a sight to behold.

Latest advisory...winds 90...pressure all the way down to 943 MB.

This is lower than I thought it would get. Late last week some models had it at 938. Looks like they might have been right.

The pressure is almost as low as the ‘38 Long Is Express at its lowest...and IS lower than what it was when it got to this latitude. The pressure is almost 30 MB’s lower than the Perfect Storm...

Winds are having a difficult time coming down to the surface...and aren’t as high as the pressure indicates because the gradient is so spread out. BUT...VERY impressive.

I think we can now OFFICIALLY say this forecast is busted.

AT 1100 AM EDT...1500 UTC...THE CENTER OF HURRICANE SANDY WAS LOCATED NEAR LATITUDE 37.5 NORTH...LONGITUDE 71.5 WEST. SANDY IS MOVING TOWARD THE NORTH-NORTHWEST NEAR 18 MPH...30 KM/H. A TURN TOWARD THE NORTHWEST IS EXPECTED SOON...FOLLOWED BY A TURN TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST TONIGHT. ON THE FORECAST TRACK... THE CENTER OF SANDY IS EXPECTED TO MAKE LANDFALL ALONG OR JUST SOUTH OF THE SOUTHERN NEW JERSEY COAST THIS EVENING OR TONIGHT.

The system IS moving NW...and is south of Montauk. To miss the US...it would have to STOP in its tracks...and move NNE.

NOT happening. But...when it makes landfall in DE or NJ....I suppose then you will realize how blown this forecast was...and then you will hide...

REPORT FROM NORTH NJ
1- Local Municipalities are justifying the ZILLION DOLLARS they got in Homeland Security money..Jeeps , trucks , tanks radar , new computers , what ever the hell they pissed my tax money away on.They are showing it all off to the Marxist f-ck Menendez .No doubt they will be looking for ZILLIONS more now that they showed they can actually use half of it .

2- Every local politician is showing off how CONCERNED they are . Looking for future votes.I got a robo call telling me about local food shelters and some bullshit about National Guard intervention..It’s drizzling here and it’s windy ..BIG FRIGGIN DEAL.
3- The news media in an attempt to keep the Libya scandle off the from page ( Obama should be arrested by the way ) has round the clock panic coverage , basically saying it’s the end of civilization as we know it .They said we’d be smashed and hammered last night by 7:00pm Didn’t even rain last night , slept with my window open. Still waiting to get smashed at noon here.

Im back at my studio recording a bass track ..not concerned

Not so sure your forecast was to get smashed last night....at least not from an official source. Forecast has always been for later today...tonight...and tomorrow.

I can't count the number of times a novice thought I said something that I didn't say. Leading up to A Day in OIF and the forest big sand storm...I had the wing commander swear I had been steadily increasing the strength of the winds. Of course....I had had SW winds at 35G50 on the slides for 5 days.

There was a time here at FR when there were a lot of bright, intelligent, highly educated and very knowledgeable people posting here – working scientists, engineers, etc. and where have they gone?

NELSON111 is not stupid and has a lot to bring to these treads due to his knowledge, experience and expertise on this topic. But sadly FR has become more of a place where arm chair “experts”, amateur” and the “hey, watch me while holds ma beer” types have taken over, shouting down people with actual expertice.

There was a time when we could have intelligent and rational discussions with each other even if we disagreed. Those days seem a distant memory.

Of course, some people will profit from any disaster but on the whole this will be a negative for the economy. You can’t shut down one of the biggest parts of the economy without it costing big time.

Two days closure is time which cannot be gotten back.

>>>According to the storm track, Sandy has yet to make her left turn.

Perhaps you need to refresh your cache. Would you like the link to the current NHC track and advisory that shows the turn has taken place and will CONTINUE to do so?

Because either 1) the data you are looking at is Old...or 2) you don't know how to read it....or 3) you are trolling.

I'll give you the benefit of the former...since I can't believe anyone could not see that turn.

AGAIN - NHC - Location: 37.5°N 71.5°W
Moving: NNW at 18 mph
Min pressure: 943 mb
Max sustained: 90 mph

Maybe a image will help you:

Or a current and past track...grey line is past track

So...this debate is closed. It's made the turn and did so overnight as forecasted. Any continued "discussion" on this topic is just plain dumb...

Thank you.

I've been here since '98....and as I have said NUMEROUS times on this board: I bemoan the fact one cannot have a rational debate on FR. People will either flood your thread with sarcasm...or talk about stuff they think they know...but don't.

It's not the FR it used to be

First you say something stupid about a storm with a 28’ storm surge calling it a weak storm. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want to be in the path of that wave with the accompanying weak Category 3 winds. My Mama taught me that. Then you call me a liberal. Then you bring up my dead mother and call me classy. Now you call me a man! Wow. As I said, stick to your expertise and try not to sound stupid. My husband and our 10 children who I birthed will be enlightened today when I inform them I am really a Mister.

Generally, the hysterics of the Enemamedia are over the top and unwarranted.

Is this still a Category I storm? Category I?

Oh...a woman.

That explains why you didn't follow the logic of the thread...or come to a logical conclusion that I was being sarcastic to the poster considering all I had said about Katrina.

Also explains why you were so overly sensitive.

Explains EVERYTHING.

There was a time here at FR when there were a lot of bright, intelligent, highly educated and very knowledgeable people posting here – working scientists, engineers, etc. and where have they gone?

That was a couple of purges ago... And yes, FR was a lot better then. The depth and breadth of expertise made FR the only place to be when anything important was happening. Those days aren't coming back I'm afraid.

Yup. I sure hope they are wrong about how many high tides this surge will impact the coast. 3-4 was what they were saying for that end of the Sound, as the water will surge, but there is no place for it to recede out of the Sound.

Crap just lost power for a few seconds already.

“working scientists, engineers, etc. and where have they gone? “

What an elitist post.

Would you like a CV required to attain posting privileges here?
