I am from Long Island and went through several hurricanes, with far less damage. This storm was very different. That said, for decades, the National Weather service has been predicting that NY was overdue for a major hurricane. Did anyone heed their warnings? Lots of talk, plenty of meetings ... no action.
I am trying to get a handle on the situation.
I said on another post City living is mostly foreign to me.
Here in the sticks more than one neighbor has chain saws,winches,chains, generators, and sump pumps...?
If need be we drive 50 100 or 150 miles to pick up supplies with a pickup we filled with gas before the storm hit?
Not sure why but there seems to be more people prepared out in the sticks.
Maybe becuase they are aware if something happens they are on their own?
Overall, I’m not sure what a indivual can do in a survival situation if they didn’t ALREADY prepare for it?
There was also a lot of talk about New Orleans getting exactly what Katrina delivered.
