I am only pointing out the facts. You can not live 500 feet from the Ocean and think you are NEVER going to get flooded out or BLOWN away.
Thing is being prepared for it even if it never happens. When we lived in Minnesota my dad ( at the time I was 5) made a tornado shelter in the back yard and even had the house retro fitted so the basement could take an F5 and still be safe and sound in the safe room. Thing is only one tornado hit that place and the home never even lost a shingle! Store food water medical supply's and have the where with all to leave when things get really bad. I feel for every one in the path of this storm but it is not the end of the world. There are people in harms way all over the USA, The thing that gets me is EVERY time a storm happens on the east coast that is all we EVER hear about. How many here know about the Columbus day storm that had record breaking winds in Portland Or. of 178MPH? yet they just called it a storm.
Or how about the record snow and freeze that New Mexico had 2 years ago when Texas cut off the flow of Natural gas that wiped out water for entire towns? Froze people to death! Not many I can assure you.
I hear about them on my news. I dunno what you are talking about.
People live were the work is man. More work, more people. The east coast is where most of the US population is. When Minnesota becomes a major home of mega metropolis you will have Fox news coverage 24/7. Until then you will get blips on the news ticker. Oh and FYI when did that Portland storm create 40 BILLION dollars worth of damage? Oh it didn't? Gee wonder why it wasn't big news.
