60Mil is pretty damn big if you ask me... I'm thinking you haven't really looked into how big it's going to be. Do you have any idea what 8-12 FEET of increased tides can do to the east coast? From the house we have out there, that would imply that I could stand up inside the house and have the water up to my eyes. This also applies to NYC, so despite thinking the NY gets more coverage than Houston, it is because that much of a tidal increase can put a good portion of that city under water, and if the winds are blowing right, it will be worse. I'm not even including the weather projections for areas hundreds of miles away that are supposed to get nasty wind, rain, snow, and possible power outages.

what you just described is basically what happens to any coastal city hit by a hurricane. Do I even need to bring up Katrina? Or even what happened to Galveston with Ike?

I concur. When Katrina was brewing, people did not anticipate the worst and the worst happened. Experts like my geology professor knew and we talked about it the week before. He described the potential disasters if the levees were to break and sure enough - they did.

To the doubtful posters, it is always better to be safe than sorry.

I am voting and I did the poll, but I will leave it at that.

As for the storm, I hope that who ever is effected by it stays safe. Sounds like it could be epically terrible. I hope its not as bad as they say. So who ever is on the east coast, good luck.

I am an Hour north of NYC and it was just light rain and wind. I went through many hurricanes living in Florida, especially 2004. People freak out up with this Hurricane and Irene last year around here.

It's 4:20pm in southeastern PA. My in-laws have come to stay with us as they were told to evacuate Long Beach Island NJ. The storm is expected to hit the NJ coast 20-30 miles from their house (last I heard). We're getting really strong winds, and the lights have flickered twice now. Expecting the worst tonight and am doubtful the power will stay on overnight. A dead tree is down nearby but I just had a lot of trimming/deadwooding/cabling done on the trees near my house, so I should be ok. The biggest thing for me will be if the power goes out, will the basement flood? I failed to get a generator after Irene and I'm kicking myself now. Shoulda just bit the bullet and spent the money. First world problems, I know.

Candles will work just fine. Stay safe, Scoozna.

I dont get the big deal, a bunch of people arent evacuating and are without electricity, its their own fault I assume? Is there something special about this one? I HIGHLY doubt any cities not under sea level are getting submerged anytime soon.

I hope everyone along the east coast and their families stay safe for the duration of Sandy. Always take the necessary precautions, even if you don't find them necessary. Aside from the last 2 years, I lived my entire life in the New Orleans area and know a thing or two about these storms and everything that comes with it including being without power for weeks and the cleanup after it. Again, hope everyone stays safe.
