The mayor is currently giving a briefing on the city's preparations for Hurricane Joaquin although it is trending right now towards the ocean (rather than a direct hit in this area).

To be honest, Sandy wasnt even that bad a storm. It was the storm surge that was bad. Where I live in Queens you wouldn't even be able to tell that there was a major storm going on when Sandy hit. Little rain, some wind, but nothing crazy. It was those coastal areas that got hit bad by rising waters. My mom lives 15 minutes from me in Manhattan and the entire neighborhood was under water for some time until the water receded.

same here where I live in Bath Beach Brooklyn, only 3 blocks from Gravesend Bay, but our land is high here and we are flood zone 5. Our street was fine, a few leaves here and there and thats was about it.

It was more the storm surge that got everyone, there really wasnt that much rain.

Here we go; the endless news coverage has begun. I swear what passes for television news these days lurches from one *story* to another. Usually milking the thing for all it is worth.

Yes, there is a storm potentially coming but last time one looked bad weather from N'oreasters to hurricanes and all in between is not new to the Tri-State area.

Muncipalities have to be prepared if a storm is approaching otherwise people can be trapped and killed. This is y frivolous news. If it looks like it will hit sat or Sunday I will
Be sure to be home or someplace safe.

Ok. No one is saying not to be prepared but endless news coverage is a bit much for something that hasn't even happened.

I live right on the water but not in a flood zone so I don't really care about storms---the only thing that worries me is possible flooding on the roads I need to take to get to work. (And those roads do flood regularly.)
