    Is Tropical Storm Michael a threat to New England???????

    These are the towns I really worry about. Most of the coverage focuses on Panama City and Mexico Beach but some of these small towns are so poor to begin with that this will be difficult to come back from. I wonder if some never rebuild.

    Why? It's likely he'll be at a golf course down south within a week.
  3. Going to be in Augusta working at the snowmobile show next weekend. I always enjoy going up there for this. Missed the grass drags in NH last week because I was in CA for work. That’s a great show. If you’ve never been you need to get there at least once.

    This. Every time I go down to PCB, generally every other year for the last 20, there are newer and bigger high rises set on the dunes. It looks like they survived for the most part but if this storm had come ashore 20 miles West I don’t know what would have happened to them.

    Ooh, you may be a tad late for the best stuff. I think peak around my locale in north-central VT peaked this week and we have started to see significant leaf drop. Maybe in the CPV or CTRV?

    The dollar signs are what started this discussion. The OP - sandysurvivor, said this would be the costliest storm ever. It’s very powerful and will certainly be devastating for that area. All that I am saying is that there is just a lot less to impact there. It would take an awful lot to reach Sandy levels of monetary damage.

    Ok. If it beats the estimated $65 billion in damages from Sandy I will humbly apologize. Until then, I just find it hard to compare the NYC Metro area to the area this storm is projected to impact.

    Ok but the fact still remains that the infrastructure and population density in the NY-NJ area is so much larger than this area of FL. There isn't $65 billion worth of property in the region to destroy. That's all I'm saying.

    This and the fact there aren't over 1 million acres of sparsely inhabited pine forest in southern NJ. This is a strong storm and there will be damage to private and public infrastructure but I don't think it is physically possible for this storm to be costlier than Sandy given the location.

    I know I'm stating the obvious but this makes a big difference in terms of impact. East of Panama City is pretty empty. If it hits PCB directly, lots more stuff to destroy.

    Really?

    I am relatively familiar with area of projected landfall being originally from SW Georgia and travelling down to the area to visit the beaches quite a bit over the years. In terms of impact on population centers, there aren't many better places that this could hit. The area is called the Forgotten Coast for a reason. East of Panama City and around the Big Bend is relatively undeveloped compared with the areas farther from Panama City west to the AL line. There aren't any of the large, ocean-front towers that you see in that area. Between the coast and I-10 there are hundreds of thousands of acres of national and state forest land and miles and miles of pine forest. This isn't meant to minimize the strength of this storm or the impact it will have on the people who do live in the area but all things considered, it would be worse if it were to landfall further west. Further inland in the Tallahassee area is a bit of a different story but there obviously isn't a surge worry. I would imagine their main worry will be wind damage to the large trees and heavy rain.

    It's blown up in the Greens over the last week or so. Absolutely peak around here.
