A Hurricane Headed to the Northeast?


Accuweather floats the possibility:

The worst case scenario for the East Coast involves Sandy paralleling the coast from Florida to the Carolinas this weekend before being drawn inland over the mid-Atlantic or New England early next week.

While the Southeast coast would face heavy rain, strong winds and rough surf, far more serious impacts await communities from Virginia to Maine if this solution pans out.

Reminiscent of the "Perfect Storm" during the week of Halloween 1991, damaging winds and significant storm surge would unfold near and northeast of its center along the coast. Similar to the 1991 storm, these conditions could last for days.

  1. I'm sure the Republicans can "pray" it away from landfall.

  2. @Betty: You must have forgotten Colbert's scientifically proven footage that hurricanes are caused by steamy gay sex. There's no way Republicans can pray *that* away.

  3. This sh*t better blow out to sea before it hits New England. Better yet, slam into New Jersey, then bang a hard right out to sea.
