It isn’t as if people didn’t have time to prepare! Why would a person leave their boat in the water and their car parked where it could be flooded?

I don't know if you have ever been to NYC but these are city folk. They have been through "big" storms before but nothing even comes close to the havoc wreaked by this storm. For many in these communities, boats are stored during the winter, in their driveway or at a protected mooring. FWIU, when the strong winds struck, some residents went to their basements, in fear of windows being blown up. The winds were followed by a storm surge - a 10' wall of water that filled up their basements and drove them back upstairs. In a place like Staten Island, there is no where to go.
A statue stands where George Dresch's house once stood.
Jane Caravello and her son Vincent look for personal items after the storm blew the roof off her home in Staten Island.
No one could prepare for such an unprecedented storm.
