sandy wasn't even a tropical system. 

no one that was in nyc/jersey survived a cat 1 hurricane that day.  

Wrong. Sustained winds of 77 in NJ, and gusts to 96 on LI.

this is going to be the fake news hurricane that breaks the camel's back.  think millions are going to keep evacuating absurdly early going forward?  

 

or maybe i'm pissed my flight was cancelled because nobody ever really knows where these things are going, and yet we get the same thing we get every single year.  WORST HURRICANE EVER COMING!!!  

 

sunny and 10 mph winds and we can't fly because foxnews and cnn scared everybody.  

 

you mean a cat 5 isn't going to hit the Carolinas afterall?  no ****ing way...

A friend of mine has family who live in the mandatory evacuation area in VA. According my friend his family thinks the order to evacuate was issued too early. And they have also told him that some in their area will not take the next mandatory evacuation orders all that seriously.

Sandy was a powerful storm. It had a greater impact on SNE than what Hurricane Bob did.

 Yeah, Bob was pretty much a Cape Cod special.

where is that 77mph sustained from?

 

It had 70 kt (80 mph) sustained when it made landfall in Brigantine, but it was no longer a hurricane at that point.  wind  speed is not the only factor

i'm just curious about the actual observation of 77mph sustained.  i know there were gusts above hurricane force but i was not aware of any one location actually recording true hurricane conditions.

The storms we had this past March had a greater impact on the Merrimack Valley area of MA than what Bob did. Even the Halloween storm last year was worse than Bob. As we both know,Sandy wasn't a hurricane but it still packed a wallop.

yea but sandy.  also, consider for a moment, sandy.

 

but, and potentially most important, sandy.

And on the 3rd day god created Sandy.  and all other things didn't matter.

Sandy caused the dinosaurs to become extinct.

Sandy caused the Hindenburg to explode.

I dont know if anyone has brought this up yet but what about this hurricane compared to Sandy?

It’s just nyc posters doing their thing. We have to accept that because the staff has no interest in ending the 15 year old tradition of them ruining every EC threat.

i would suggest to lighten up.  this began as a valid comparison, simply to highlight the potential impact from Florence despite the weakening trend.  then there was an effort to clampdown on the sandy comparisons, and we see what good that did.  this is a banter thread, after all, and the comparison was always about Florence.

now we are just having a good time at the expense of those who were initially sensitive about the comparison.  the initial intent was to highlight the continued danger of florence.  :)

virginia had a mandatory evacuation starting at 8 AM on Tuesday.

 

think about how ridiculous this is and how this impacts future storms and when there actually may be trouble.  

I completely agree with this.  Virginia was never really in the cross-hairs.  Completely unnecessary to evacuate them.

Simple solution....you just don't evacuate.  They can't make you leave.  If I lived in Virginia with the forecast being what it is now...I'd just disregard the evacuation.

Same here

I would just stay put
