Hurricane Sandy and dying trees.

Hurricane Sandy is predicted to hit the US east coast early next week, somewhere between Chesapeake Bay and Long Island Sound. The central pressure is forecast to be lower than that of the legendary 1938 storm.

This corridor is filled with dead and dying trees. Hurricanes topple trees over by first oversaturating the ground with rain, and then knocking them down with strong winds. This time Sandy will be assisted by the weakened and dead trees, which would cause homes to be crushed by fallen trees, and massive power outages. This area is also filled with nuclear power plants, whose reactors need to be continuously cooled. Disruptions in the power grid would cause a switch to emergency cooling, and we saw how well that worked in Fukushima.

Since I believe that the death of the trees is caused by ozone and GOM poisons from the Gulf of Mexico and the Louisiana sinkhole, potentiated by Fukushima radionuclides, this has the potential to be the first Fuku-enhanced societal disruption in the US. There is a possibility that it could be epic in scope.

EDIT: Even though this continues to appear to be a historic storm, the National Hurricane Center is going to discontinue calling Sandy a “hurricane”, they’re gonna say it’s “windy”:

Mayor Bloomberg of New York is not calling for evacuations.

Sandy is “perfectly safe”, “nothing to worry about”. Sound familiar? “This fish contains a safe amount of cesium”… it’s the same crap!

UPDATE: Bloomberg has called for evacuation of Zone A in NYC:

The GFS model has historically low barometric pressure at landfall. Delaware coast already under water. Strongest winds are to the north of the storm. The GFS has landfall between Atlantic City and Toms River, I would expect it to be slightly south of that. This means NYC, Long Island, and northern New Jersey to feature the strongest winds. Areas directly under the eye may have a long period with lighter winds.

I went on a field trip Friday to 5 different parks in Maryland… the vast majority of the trees still have leaves on them. Some people think the leaves will just blow off, reducing the number of uprooted trees… I disagree. The leaf damage I saw was really damage to the interior of the tree itself, and not just the leaves. Trees and storm surge are the biggest risk here… the huge area of this storm is what is causing the surge in water levels along the coast.

    Very sad news now from Princeton NJ.

    A man was cleaning up damage on his property today when a tree fell on him, killing him.

    It’s still dangerous outside.

    who ever stayed is a idiot pain and simple.

    Multiple houses floated away into the ocean, and many more were destroyed. I am hoping that everyone who decided to stay is still alive.

    Incredible pictures your posting here everyone! …Sorry to hear about everyone’s loses! I wish you the best in the clean up and during the rebuilding process. Luckily it sounds like the vast majority of people heeded the evacuation warnings.

    I was just wondering – was that salt water that got into the Subway tunnels? I would imagine some of it was.

    Fire Island Pines update —
    From Jay Pagano, FIPPOA president:

    At this time we have limited information about the Pines. We have confirmed reports of extensive washovers from the ocean east of the co-ops and a very severe breach from the ocean to the bay just east of the Pines. We know that there is extensive flooding from the bay and the ocean and the bay is experiencing very high tides at this
    time. There is extensive da
    mage to pools and decks of ocean houses from the east end of the community to Coastguard Walk. Our dunes are destroyed along the length of the community.

    There are confirmed reports of houses lost to the ocean elsewhere on Fire Island but none in the Pines.

    Location:Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn

    Was in Rockaway earlier today. The entire boardwalk end to end is either gone or displaced up against buildings that face the beach. Incredible devastation. My friend’s house which is about 3 blocks off the beach and 2 blocks from the bay had a water mark line approx 4 feet off the ground. Cars were floating all over the place last night…apparent by the way they were “parked” today, in all different directions and some on top of or into each other. Tons of sand and debris in the streets for 2-3 blocks in from the beach.
    I know many of people on this board bash JB, but he tweeted a couple of days before the storm that boardwalks from A.C. up to NYC/LI would be gone after Sandy.

  6. Just what I am seeing here, videos and pictures, the square miles involved, .. I will say that this will cost over 200 billion in damages in the end. damages are more than over a 1,500 square mile area ! ! Winds, flood, rain, have taken there toll on property, personal and commercial as well as city and towns government’s that will have to rebuild, many structures that are left standing will have to be destroyed and rebuilt because of salt water damage, including electric wiring damages ! This will either help the economy get legs or it can crush the economy for business being out of service or may go under because of cost to rebuild or not enough insurance ! This in whole is a devastating blow to the economy and to working people who will be filling for unemployment possibly for a long time as many companies will not rebuild ! Insurance companies will take a huge hit, reserve cash will evaporate, as stocks diminish in value !
    Government resources will become very depleted and Congress will have to act !

    • Insurance companies would be forced to sell assets at firesale prices to finance claims, so the gov’t will bail them out… so the Fed will reduce the value of money further, a short-term bump in the economy will be followed by a long-term slide, the same thing we have been seeing.

      • Glad you’re still up and running, .. no problems with eclectic I take it, .. good news, do you have ele, heat or fuel oil ?,… Fans run on ele so many who have fuel oil can not stay warm because of that, even gas one needs the fans to flute the heat throughout the ducks !
        Why I used wood and coal and K-1 space heaters when I lived in N.C. Little more work but when the lines went down and the roads were ice, I was warm and happy, sept my toes would get icey riding in my wrecker/tow-truck all day pulling people out of ditches and snow banks that know how to drive, .. love them folks, …Ching$ Ching$ !

      • I imagine some of the underbelly ones are already sending their cash to offshore banks when this storm looked threatening and have cooked their books, .. but with a second set of books they will ask for Gov. handouts, .. at tax payers expenses, really don’t think many would have many assets to sell in this economy, The EMS says the Liquor store is open !

    CATSKILL — An area that borders the Hudson River and Catskill Creek saw heavy flooding.
    Greene County officials say the flooding Monday night at “The Point” was worse than Irene. Three large docks are pressed against the entrance to Frank Guido’s “Port of Call.”
    Some fourfeet of water ripped through the newly renovated restaurant. Fuel oil is leaking from a former fuel oil business. The Chairman of the Greene County Legislature Wayne Speenburgh called The Point “a mess.” He said it was the highest level it has even been.
    Frank Guido, owner of Port of Call said he had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars rebuilding after Hurricane Irene last year and this storm put his restaurant under four feet of water.

  12. Sorry but here it comes, …

    Mainstream media, ignorant netizens in a total state of denial about looting following superstorm Sandy
    It’s not even nightfall and the looting after superstorm Sandy has already begun. One person in Philadelphia has already been arrested on suspicion of looting, and residents throughout Philly and NYC widely expect a wave of looting to kick off tonight as darkness falls. …

    Now that the storm has passed, the real risk of looting begins tonight (and lasts through the week)
    Superstorm Sandy has passed, causing billions of dollars in damage, flooding New York City, shuttering transportation systems and leaving over ten million people without power. While the storm may have passed, the danger of looting has only just begun. As the sun falls this evening, the combination of darkness, ongoing power outages, and emergency services operating in overload provides the perfect cover for looters and violent criminals to start attacking homes and businesses. …

    People devising looting sprees via Twitter in wake of Hurricane Sandy may find armed resistance waiting for them
    Scores of people are using the social networking site Twitter to plan looting sprees in the wake Hurricane Sandy, though many of them – if they decide to follow through on their threat – could wind up facing the business end of a firearm.
    In fact, the New York National Guard is already preparing for any eventuality, including civil disobedience and looting, according to reports that say the state is planning on deploying nearly 1,200 soldiers for those, and other, purposes.

  13. Something is terribly wrong with the fabric of society when people think a deadly storm is the perfect opportunity to go on a looting spree. These city-dwelling gang bangers are, of course, counting on the citizens along the eastern seaboard being disarmed due to gun control laws. With 911 out of commission and peace officers completely occupied with other emergency tasks, citizens will be left on their own to protect their homes and families. The storm has taken away police protection, and the State has taken away their Second Amendment rights, so what do they have left to protect themselves from these armed looting gangs?

    Absolutely nothing. And the fabric of American culture has devolved so rapidly in recent years, with liars running the government and pedophiles running airport security checkpoints, that the idea of exploiting an emergency situation to rob, loot, rape and pillage innocent citizens actually seems NORMAL to the violent criminal underclass. They see this storm as an opportunity to enrich their own materialism at the expense of someone else who is already being victimized by the storm.

    This is beyond merely criminal: It is a betrayal of the very tenants of law and order in …

    So what that means is the nuclear fuel pool started to heat up and Oyster Creek started to bring in some diesel fire pumps, apparently they got the situation rectified before turning the pumps. They were in a position where they were bringing in diesel fire pumps in order to keep the nuclear fuel pool cool because of all the problems they were having as a result of Sandy

  20. SKorea Probing Falsely Certified Nuclear Parts
    Tuesday, November 6, 2012
    An official says South Korea’s nuclear watchdog is investigating a forgery scandal that is forcing the shutdown of two reactors and sparked fears of unprecedented power shortages this winter.

    Nuclear Safety and Security Commission spokeswoman Shim Eun-jung said Tuesday her agency is checking forged safety certificates and will invite civilian experts to participate.

    South Korea announced Monday that it found five nuclear reactors running with falsely certified components. Officials say two reactors with the highest concentration of those parts have either shut down or will do so Tuesday.

    About 30 percent of South Korea’s electricity comes from nuclear plants and authorities warn electricity reserves could fall dangerously low if those parts aren’t replaced by January. No radioactive leak has occurred.

    Yonhap news agency says prosecutors are investigating the parts suppliers.

    • that was good. the foreign guy at the end. “America is a wonderful idea”. yeah…. and interesting how the community helped itself faster than the gov’t. That’s because that’s how it is supposed to be. We should overthrow the government. They are taking our money when we need it to rebuild and then they are not showing up.

    • I’ve seen on news brief were the Red Cross had only used a very small % of the money raised for Haiti, they say the rest is for long range help there, Meanwhile it’s getting interest in the back.

      Florida settled with the tobacco Company’s about 13 years ago, they held on to the 600 million settlement and a couple years back goverment ran in small print in the business sectiona of papers that anyone having a claim against the tobacco company’s to (gave inf.)
      Most people didn’t know it had ever been in the papers and they waited ten years, people forgot about it, many die, and family’s didn’t know about. Wonder how much interest was made on that money in ten years, how much was not giving out ?
      Just business as usual !

    The show, called “121212: The Concert for Sandy Relief,” will start Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. Eastern time at Madison Square Garden and benefits the Robin Hood Relief Fund. It will be carried on dozens of broadcast and cable TV channels nationally and internationally, including CBS, HBO, VH1 Classic, EPIX, Fuse, AXS TV and G4 and internationally on A&E International, the American Forces Network, Sony Entertainment Television, HBO (Latin America) and 37 MTV channels.

    The music also will be carried on Clear Channel Radio stations and streamed on various websites including Yahoo, YouTube, AOL, Vevo, Hulu and MTV Networks. Event organizers say the show will be accessible to 2 billion people worldwide.,0,5766642.story
