Is everyone on the east coast ready for a hurricane? (current event)

I noticed that yesterday the track was skirting the states but still tracking out at sea. Now the 'cone of probability' is tracking closer to the coast. Are the CM's on the east cost ready for this storm? I sure hope so. It looks like it's going to be a big one. Residents on the east coast are in my thoughts.

  • Yeah, I'm in NC. We are use to them. I have my batteries, my dehydrated food, and water. We have a pool, so no worries flushing (if you know what I mean.) We are going to put the tie-downs on the porch roof (something my husband rigged) and take down the gazebo on the deck, stow the deck furniture, and get everything filled with gas. Then, we will deal with what comes. If it passes, we put all back. If it comes ashore, we clean up (and we can get started doing that without waiting for the feds. We did it with Hugo, Fran, Dennis, Floyd, Bertha, Bonnie, and way back Hazel, Camile, Ion, and too many others to mention.)

  • Good luck to all of you on the east coast ...we went through a hurricane in Ft Walton Beach,Fl in 1975 and it was scary. We were without power and water for 5 days. It was bad. We had a few dozen tall pine trees blown down in our yard . DH bought a chain saw and we ended up with a few years worth of firewood. No damage to the house.
    Good luck!

  • I lived in FLa for 7 years on the golf side. I know the one storm is very close to the Carolinas and New England. I currently live in PA and lets just say we got the remnants of Hurricane Irene (?) anyway by the time ti got here it was a tropicla storm but peopel were running out buying the store up. I found it hilarious at the time. I just hope this hurricane isn't New York's 100 year storm.

  • I'm on the Gulf coast and we are ready every year as all should be. No one gets all freaked out and we don't have runs on supplies. It's just a part of life.

  • Oof, I hope it doesn't hit. I'd rather it track back out to sea. We're all set to go on vacation to the Outer banks in a few weeks. We have hurricane insurance, just in case, and we'd get our money back if something happened to the house we're renting. But still... I'm starting to see why it was much less expensive to rent this house on the beach in September.

  • Yeah because all hurricanes do here is cause rain. But I'm in PA so I'm kinda inland and stuff so.
