    Default 9/11/18 hurricane reported the way it wasn't reported on 9/11/ 2001

    Amazing how similar to 9/11 2001 . Hurricane Florence approaching today off the east coast gets coverage and I'm sure will continue to get coverage as is the common practice of our fear porn news. However its the kind of coverage that was missing back on 2001

    And it was an even larger storm, Hurricane Erin heading right for NYC prior to 9/11 2001

    I'm keeping an eye on the whole thing because down here in Louisiana, we're trained by life to do that, but also because my boyfriend does disaster relief catering and they are involved in this storm.

    Involved by providing food for the electrical crew that is poised to deploy.......so to speak.

    On things like this I err on the side of caution...I think it is good we have systems in place for advance notice of disasters. What happened with Erin, I can't even remember. There is only so much you can really do, but already anticipating it.

    We got a hard lesson on the last one which was just Cat 1. Thing is it already rained for ten days straight. The basement flooded and killed our furnace. What really happened was that a piece of wood got jammed in the sump so the float couldn't go down so it was basically turned off for days. So that makes something else to monitor.

    No real need to be afraid of it, but aware, sure.

    New Bern and Cherry Point got four to six feet of water from the swell:

    This one doesn't have the strongest winds but is considered Cat 5 in rain.

    Looks like we are only about 50 miles from major destruction. Power out for ~18 hours, looks like someone from Georgia fixed it, as it's not too wild here today. However the main bulk of Florence is still rotating inland.

    Not going to hunt for pictures now but we can reasonably say that the coast and anything near rivers past the Falls Line has been washed clean of civilization and even after the waters recede it will be breeding diseases for a while.

    I would expect fewer holiday hams and turkeys and perhaps a glut of soybeans, but as far as the million or so people evacuated, I'm afraid they may have nothing to look forward to at all.
