I mean, I think talking about sandy constantly should get you five posted...that would probably take care of half the NYC forum.

Look.  Its relevant to this topic.  We haven't seen a storm like this with surge and this type of wind since Sandy.

until something beats sandy she'll stay relevant.  1938 used to be the thing and then sandy pushed it out.  something will eventually come to replace her.

Nice troll for NE peeps.  1938 4eva

Conditions going downhill fast at Brett Adair's spot.  Should get much much worse too.  Concerned for surge at the spot he's at now too.

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 storm is going to run over Georgia, the Carolinas, and SE VA at likely hurricane or TS levels.  Lots of population and infrastructure.

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.

Dollar signs are arbitrary.

This is going to be devastating. 

I'm going to say this, and I don't care if I get banned, told to calm down, or told to go to Hades, but while Sandy was bad and extremely destructive Sandy is not the be all and end all of storms.

you can tell it's bad the way he is arguing with his copilot and desperately driving around

I want to watch, but I also don’t want to see someone die live.

He finally admitted they're in trouble from the surge. They're trying to get into a house to get some elevation, is that right?

Yea, they seem to be trying to break in; I think the house is locked.

It's bad.  They are on the SE side of Mexico Beach and the water has trapped them near the shore line and the best option they seem to have is a wooden house on pilings.

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.
