    It will be about as bad as the earthquake. I live near the epicenter & it didn't do much. Our weather forecast is for 30% chance of storms, they aren't even calling for rain.....

    This won't amount to much. It's a slow news day & the only thing they have to talk about is how bad the storms going to be IF it makes a left turn & heads west.

    Ehh, yeah, maybe so.... a lot of people thought the same about Katrina too. I'm hoping for an Ike like event. We actually got to see some of it in Ohio.

    It looks like we will get a lot of rain and wind, don't think the full force of the storm will hit us. Either way we've been put on standby for the weekend.

    NJ is already in a state of emergency so the Nat. Guard can deploy where potentially needed now. Voluntary evacuation of the Jersey Shore has been called.

    The eye is 250 miles east of where I am .

    Feeder bands bringing wind gust of 15-25 MPH with squawls and thunder storms.

    Heaverier rain and 40 mph gusts expected here tonight.

    Rig for dirty weather Mid-Atlantic states.

    Models show the eye much closer to land as the storm heads north.

    I was a kid when Camille came through. Relatives took me on a tour of some of the areas near Charlottesville. Camille was one mean lady. Imagine trees 3-5 feet in diameter twisted like toothpicks, no grass on the ground because of all the mud. It was an unbelievable mess.

    I think some of you on the coast need to look at the latest models. Some of you are going to have a rough weekend. It could be a Cat 4 when it hits as if a Cat 3 isn't enough.

    Just to put things in perspective.....
    Ike was a strong category two when it made landfall in Galveston.
    As it worked it's way north it took out power, washed out roads, took down trees all the way to Canada and killed 50 people in inland states all the way to Ohio.
    It pretty much wiped out the Bolivar Peninsula.

    Virginia Beach, Ocean City Maryland, Dewey and Rehobeth beaches in Delaware, Cape May, Wildwood, and Avalon in New Jersey, heck,anything along the coast up to Boston could easily be looking at billions in property damage.

    Ike was back in 2008 and we are still rebuilding down here.

    I hope everyone who has the option to leave will do so when it is advisible. Yeah, maybe it won't be much of a storm, but then again, are you willing to be your life on it?

    BTW, I have been in 2 hurricanes on the Delmarva peninsula as a child, I had no choice. I would not do so as an adult.

    Ike was a pain. No power for 2 weeks. If you're in the path I would suggest you get a generator if you don't already have one and stock up on fuel, food and water now.

    You don't live on the coast. Hurricane Isabelle beat the crap out of us in 2003 We lost power for 9 days trees down all over the place.
    Friend of mine had chest high water in his house that's already jacked up 5 feet. Live through one or two on the coast, They are nothing to joke about.
