How often have you had storms that knocked out your power for an extended amount of time, or caused flooding?

We're fortunate our power lines are underground so we only lost power once and that was during Irene.

We flood a good bit though. When the Schuylkill overflows it makes our live miserable, but the only real danger to the house is from run off when the storm drains run beyond capacity. Then everything drains right into my back door.

It is stuff like this that makes you wonder, "Hurricane Sandy appears destined to enter the history books as one of the most exceptional -- and potentially destructive -- storms to strike the Northeast in modern history."

UPDATE:

wife at home is ok. when asked how it is, she laughed and said "just some good rain and pretty windy, nothing destructive" they still have power and everything(internet, cable).

home home is in southeastern CT, parents are well prepped, comparable to a doomsday prep-er. dad went out and cleared some of the storm drains. says"have seen worse heading our way" "flash floods and high water table and maybe some water in the basement the only concerns" "nothing to worry about son". good enough for me

not to bad from the KV family, hope everyone else does ok. stay safe

Wishing you all safe.

BUT.

One thing I know about spending time with family on the east coast is:

Matters on the east coast, especially New York, get inflated very quickly. My dad, being from New York, often jokes: "What's more important, New York or New Yorkers?" Answer: "New Yorkers...just ask them." That, and the winters, made him move west.

Laughing This storm hopefully won't amount to much. It ain't the southern coast. A proper hurricane is a nasty bit of weather.

Just guffin' you all in the city. Seriously, be careful.

Cool

So far, so good @ 1:00 p.m. here in Central CT. Wind gusts are getting right stiff. Rain is coming down sideways. We're still a couple hours away from the worst of it, though. knock knock

Stay Safe everyone.

I have family in Southeastern New Jersey, and an Aunt who lives right on the Deleware River in Pennsville a few miles down from the Dupont plant (her back yard is the river). I am pretty sure she's left her place and headed inland. This one looks to be nasty.

Saw some live feeds today. Some of LI is already flooded.

Several brothers from another site in the affected areas say it's getting pretty crazy.

Here's one entry-

There's massive flooding all over the shores of LI now. Babylon Village was hit pretty badly. The blocks near the bay over here are pretty wet too (about 1/4 Mi South of me). I'm at about 20' above MSL so I should be ok.

I just finished downing all of my clients' servers and assisting them with disconnecting the rest of their IT equipment. One major electrical/traffic contractor said signals are falling and going offline already. It's chaos.

Here's a pic from Winthrop, MA-




Shocked


Stay safe everyone...........

I was in Ledyard (near New London) for the hurricane in 84 or 85 (didn't take any notes). A lot of trees down, power down, etc. Took the ship up to the sub base in Groton, heavy steel cables and moored her to one of their piers. During the height of the storm the pier was underwater with 90MPH plus winds. Excitement. After the storm the road home was blocked and had to stop at a buddies house to drink mass quantities of beer. Eventually had the wife meet me on the opposite side of the downed trees on the road!

My pal who works at Electric Boat said that it's the first time in his tenure (12 years or so) they've closed the sub yard.

Why you'd need to close the sub yard, I'll never know. What's going to happen, the subs get more underwater? Cool

(Yeah, yeah, I know about all the fissile material... I've been drinking trace amounts of it for years, with no superpowers to show for it, dammit.)

Gettin' dicey here in NE Ohio (well...at least compared to what we usually see around here). We're no where near the center of this thing, but Lake Erie is already gettin' crazy. Drove down to a local lakefront park and saw waves like I've never seen on the lake before in my life - easily 15-20 footers (10 footers are usually a rare event in these parts). A local news station posted this photo of the waves flooding the Rt. 90 East Shoreway

Surprised none of the LA boys have chimed in yet. As I've been following this hurricane, I've remained relatively unafraid for most folks. Being from Louisiana, Hurricane season is usually a good ol' time tracking hurricanes, betting on where it might go, and then riding out the storm is all a part of the fun. As Sandy has remained a Cat. 1, the primary concern for me has been the sheer size of the storm. Cat. 1s are relatively weak storms so their focus is weak. As such, they remain enormous storms that can cause a good bit of damage over an incredibly large area. A Cat. 1 hurricane hitting the south is business as usual. A Cat. 1 hitting the NE is rare to say the least and I'd imagine that the entire area currently affected is completely unused to dealing with storms of this magnitude, especially when a warm air mass like this collides with a cold air mass from the north. When Irene came through last year, tornadoes tore through upstate NY, something none of my friends up there (most of whom are in their 50s) had ever seen before.

Reading through this thread, I'm so glad that everyone who's in the affected area has prepared themselves for the worst, but hoped for the best. Now that the eye has come on shore and the winds dropped dramatically, I'd say the worst of the storm itself is over. I hope everyone is ready for the potential flooding that may come afterwards, particularly with all the run off from the storm flowing into low lying areas right now.

Stay safe everyone, and please do check in!
