    The End of the world depicted in a film? I never knew. :roll:
    Nut cases thinking they know when the end is :roll:
    I just hope it all starts in the most densely populated parts so I can watch it all unfold. :roll:

    Again we can look to Emmerich, Independence Day, the aliens start with the big cities. So if that happens, you'll get to watch those cities go first.

    But anyway I think I've detailed plenty with stupid movie references :laugh:

    Correct: the 1991´s storm had that too, though.

    The 1991 storm's pressure didn't drop to 940 millibars north of Cape Hatteras though. The 1991 storm had a lowest pressure of 971 millibars, so Sandy was larger and was spread out over a larger area.

    That's what i said. To date, this is the biggest storm (sheer size) in the Atlantic with it's 1600 Km diameter.

    You missed the first thing I said. :slap:

    This is the first time that a tropical storm has ever strengthened north of Cape Hatteras and made land-fall. It's pretty crazy because the system that was already over the mid-Atlantic and northeastern US practically sucked the hurricane in with the hurricane gaining strength all the while. I don't think the size was the biggest distinguishing factor.

    Dunno, really: have no data either way.

    According to CNN, the wind wasn't head on against the coast a few hours before landfall but it switched direction to become that way which, in turn, made an already bad storm worse.

    It's a conjugation of factors that make this storm unique:

    1 - it's size (diameter)
    2 - the time (tide wise) @ landfall
    3 - the time (moon wise) @ landfall
    4 - the wind direction @ landfall
    5 - the assimilation of nearby storms which made a bad storm worse

    Totally agree.

    Even areas less affected that have rivers going through them which have been hit by this storm further up said rivers are going to be affected and it all depends on the "exposure" those rivers had to the storm.

    It has the potential to be worse then the surge because river waters tend to have more speed when compared to surge waters, if i'm not mistaken.

    Really. Look since I am on the west coast and you are on the east coast isn't it logical to think that on the day of Armageddon (Dec 21st 2012) That the East coast will get the first of it and then it will spread this way? In fact the very first place would be like Korea! Since the other side of the world will be on Dec 21st 2012 before we are really, Right?
    Just kidding around is all and if them zombies do start coming around I will shoot them, I do not want to become a zombie and I aint going to let any zombies eat me!

    I hope that cleaning up from this MASSIVE storm will go fast and smooth. I will keep you all in my prayers! I am very glad that this mega supper storm was weak and not as strong as Katrina, Thank GOD for that. I tell you this if it was as strong as a cat4 we would be seeing far more deaths and far more destruction. Thank GOD every one, Thank Him for sparing the east coast. Really I do. :respect::toast:

    I think it should be left open in case anyone needs help in the days to come.
    It will fade into the archives eventually when all is well again on the east coast.
    We'll keep an eye on it so it doesn't just become a thread crapping nightmare. ;)
