Re: Hurricane Florence...
I live in Houston, (Gulf Coast my entire life), so I have seen countless Storms.
I'm fascinated at the amount of panic shown by the News Media and the Polititians. "Biggest Storm Ever" . Come on, while it's not a small Storm, it's kinda middle of the road as far as hurricanes go.
We went through Hurricane Ike 10 years so. It was, size wise, twice as big as this storm. Lots of damage. But we cleaned up, and got on with life.
We had Harvey come in last year. Not much of a Hurricane. But it decided to park its self on the coast and dump close to 60 inches of rain n 36 hours. Houston was under water.
The "category" number really doesn't mean that much. They all dissipate quickly upon land fall. The big thing is the rain. If it stalls, and keeps picking up moisture out of the Atlantic, you could be in for a major disaster.
As bad as Ike was, Harvey was much worse in the misery it inflicted.
Shelter from wind, run from water. That is the motto on the Gulf Coast. I would say it's the same for the long time residents of the East Coast.
