Default Are you in the path of Hurricane Sandy?

Do you have your prep done? Water and food yet?

What is there to prepare for? I find it hilarious how people stock up on food like a zombie apocalypse is going to happen. Worst comes to worst I'll be without power for a day, I think I have enough food in my house to survive a day

worst comes to worst could be a lot more grim and dangerous than that, especially in NYC.

...

My father was in Jamaica when it hit there. He was fine, so just aunts and stuff in New York that are in the path but I doubt they are in extreme danger.

I've seen their evacuating towns and closing schools and roads and crap. Not to put NBA over people's safety but will this effect the start of the season at all?

As we learned in Katrina, windspeed doesn't truly tell you destructive force of a big, big storm. The winds aren't crazy strong, but they extend at tropical storm force for almost a thousand miles.

Secondly the storm is moving slow which means, 24-36 hours of tropical storm winds. Roofs that withstand the hurricane gusts in the first few hours made give out later in the storm.

Third, the storm surge is going to coming in almost due west which might be the worst possible direction, so NY, NJ and CT shore lines may see up to 11ft of storm surge if the center of the storm is far enough north. Also since the storm is slow, they are expended the surge to last for three high tide cycles. The Eastern Beaches in NYC already have the water topping the sand dunes and we a quite a while from landfall of the storm.

The winds will do damage, but the water is going to do a lot of damage.
Quote:
In a measurement of pure kinetic energy, NOAA's hurricane research division on Sunday ranked the surge and wave "destruction potential" for Sandy — just the hurricane, not the hybrid storm it will eventually become — at 5.8 on a 0 to 6 scale. The damage expected from winds will be far less, experts said. Weather Underground meteorologist Jeff Masters says that surge destruction potential number is a record and it's due to the storm's massive size.

"You have a lot of wind acting over a long distance of water for hundreds of miles" and that piles the storm surge up when it finally comes ashore, Masters said. Even though it doesn't pack much power in maximum wind speed, the tremendous size of Sandy — more than 1,000 miles across with tropical storm force winds — adds to the pummeling power when it comes ashore, he said.

The storm is going make a left and then a right as it slowly goes north, so it's going to double back over some areas.
