    by the way the 1938 hurricane was a category 5. the most powerful one ever to strike the continental u.s. just research it instead of looking at those lame pictures of a hubcap rolling by and a some thin branches in the middle of the road. yes, a couple of roofs fell on cars but they should be insured. probably not though. wow, a canopy fell off a restaurant. maybe 45 minutes to put back up. devastating. the flooding while annoying is about 2 or 3" looking at those pics. when water reaches the top of those stop signs then maybe you have something.

    Those hurricanes do look awful, so for that I apologize.

    Reading up on them quick, I do believe most of the damage were in coastal communities where winds were the strongest. Flooding and major rain fall was mostly the issues in central MA. None of those Hurricanes stayed at Cat 4 or 5 by the time they reached that far inland. Not to mention 80 years ago I'm sure people didn't evacuate like they do today. If people stayed during these current hurricanes down south many more people would have died, like Katrina. But people have learned to not fuck with these storms and they're much better off leaving. I'm sure very few left New England during those storms back then which led to more deaths, especially since infrastructure was not nearly as good back then (roads/homes).

    I over exaggerated central MA being immune to storms, but these people down south get hit with hurricanes multiple times a year and while most go by without too much damage, you shouldn't really down play an event where people die. But I do agree with you the sensationalized media ALWAYS takes it too far with their coverage.

    Been trying to figure out for last 10 minute how to respond to this guy. I cant. This guy is a friggin moron. I have friends in the panhandle/Georgia area. Life sucks for them at the moment (it will eventually be ok).

    Hurricanes suck

    At best, we pray for no major damage to our properties and that we are all safe. It just sucks that we cannot use the things we take for granted (electricity, a/c, internet, phone, etc) for a bit

    i'm sure your friends will find their lawn furniture in their neighbors yard and they can gut it out without power if they are without a generator which makes them not that bright. a few shingles on a roof are not a big deal. half a days work. so respond to that. at least i'm not moronic enough to live in florida.

    i know. i went too far. it was bad for a lot of people. way over hyped this time after the storm instead of before it. do not believe that many evacuated from this one though. people live in florida because they do not like snow or cold weather. both are harmless if you stay inside.

    Concrete slabs were all that was left in some parts of Mexico Beach after the hurricane brought strong winds and storm surge.
