    Projections put Hurricane Laura making landfall just a few miles east of my location It was suppose to go up the Sabine River between Texas and Louisiana, but at the minute shifted to the east. This caused the majority of damage to be in Southwest Louisiana. Southeast Texas got some damage...

    If things play out as forecast, it looks like Hurricane Florence may equal or best Hurricane Harvey. As of 9/12/2018, the storm is expected to strengthen, then stall as it makes landfall. This is a nightmare situation. If you are in the path of Hurricane Florence, get out, get out, GET...

    For any of those that are sorry it's been a slow hurricane season, check out this beast heading towards Hong Kong. If predictions are correct would be equivalent of CAT 4 storm hitting HK on Sunday. What this has to do with survival: Hong Kong has population of 15 million people and many many...

    I dont guess New Jersey needs too much help. Things may not be as bad as they seem. If relief crews can be turned away because they are non-union workers, then things must not be "that" bad. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/11/02/New-Jersey-Turns-Away-Nonunion-Relief-Crews...

    I understand the peoples frustration, my family and I were without power for 18 days after hurricane Rita. 3 days is nothing compared to 2 1/2 weeks. There is no excuse for this kind of behavior. I think this is a good example of how quickly things can go bad. By throwing eggs the people are...

    Guys and gals, the worst part is about to set in, and that is the depression after the storm. For the people that got flooded, for the people that lost loved ones, there is only 1 path, and that is to rebuild. If you think its bad now just give it a couple of months. Thanksgiving will be...

    Like many other members here on this forum I had to deal with a hurricane this past weekend. I was lucky this time and the impact was rather light, where I live, with the exception of some rain and a few hours of strong wind gusts. Three days before the storm I took a trip to the local walmart...

    I live in upstate NY, near the capital of Albany (You may have heard ''Troy'' on national news yesterday...), and we got hit pretty well with Irene. Fortunately I'm one of the lucky ones whose home isn't under water, but that's only one of the ''new'' worries I got out of this experience. I had...

    June 1 = the first day of hurricane season. If you live in a hurricane prone area, what kind of steps do you take to get ready for the season? Get the generator out and make sure it will crank Get the chainsaw serviced, and buy an extra chain or two Fill up the gas cans Check AA battery...

    Lesson Learned with Generator I live in Texas and the recent cold front is affecting us. We have not lost any power and are doing just fine. We are, however, expecting ice and snow on Friday. With ice comes frozen power lines and ice on trees that break power lines. So I got the generator...
