Watched MANY videos of hurricane chasers and sometimes i DONT seem to get why some people are outside in shorts and some are in pants. I have been outside in T.S. Ida and T.S. Fay and Ida was a COLD and MISRIBLE LATE season hurricane with temps in the low to mid 60s and Fay was WARM and MUGGY!!! Both storms however i was wearing shorts!

The hurricane is supposed to pass through Connecticut on sunday but I’m not sure if I have anything to worry about or not. I’ve lived in CT my entire life so I’m not very familiar with hurricanes. Will I be safe?

Like exactly what time will it start? And from a one through a ten how bad will it be? Also, what are smart things to have while the hurricane is happening? Like if the power goes out….

Okay, I have to admit I’m scared to death of this hurricane everyone’s talking about. I read bunches of articles on it and how New York City is going to be destroyed and this is like, the worst hurricane ever. I live in Southern Connecticut, in the Fairfield County. I am dying to know what the hurricane is going to do to us, and the damage, and if I have a good chance of surviving, lol. I bet I sound crazy, but I’m just really really scared!

Hurricane Irene was a hurricane, but now a tropical storm. What’s the difference between the two?
And what about cyclone and typhoon? Please give me a short comparison,especially their speed. Or anyone can show me a link that explains the comparison.
Are cyclone and tropical cyclone the same???

I live in NJ, about 45 minutes drive west of the shore in central Jersey. I’m really excited about this hurricane as it will be my first. I was originally going to Atlantic City for the weekend to get a closer look but I read now that they’ve put in mandatory evacuation. How can I go about experiencing the storm up close? The only thing I’m worried about during the storm is falling trees and being in wooded areas.

Hurricane Irene is supposed to hit Boston around Sunday, which is where my ship leaves out of. I’m leaving on Friday, so hopefully I’ll miss that, but the predictions say that the hurricane could veer out to sea. If the hurricane is on the path of my ship, what will happen?

Are they going to cancel it in advance? If the water and wind are rough, will we not be able to go out on the deck? Is it going to be scary/will you feel the waves a lot?

What would you do if you lived in a city that’s 20 feet below sea level, turned on the news, and found out that a category 5 hurricane with a 15 foot storm surge was scheduled to hit within next 3-5 days? Would you get out of town any way you could? Or stick around and blame the republicans in Washington (over 955 miles away) for not coming to your rescue afterwards?

lose electricity.
Since that time, the area has had many days that have been very windy.
Why have there been so many windy days this year since Hurricane Ike passed through this summer?

The house was built in 1995 and is roughly 2000 square feet. The straps would connect the roof to the support beams, to prevent the roof from flying off during a hurricane. Google left me empty-handed.
Ballpark figure? 00? 000? I can do paint, and probably tear down drywall and put up new drywall myself, tho I’d have a bit of a learning curve to deal with.

if there was a storm in a hurricane and it hit the oil spill, would it be a huge fireball?
Its more of a hypothetical question. I’m not really assuming or referring to anything.

how the winds have a role in the hurricanes? where do hurricanes occur and what time of year? What types of clouds are in the hurricane the altitude and composition? Can you answer some of these questions?

or do they feel the hurricane should be negotiated with, and talked to?

Why is Australia’s storm being called a cyclone instead of a hurricane when the winds were noted over 180 miles per hour?

I’ve heard cyclones were listed as being 20-30 miles per hour and a hurricane is listed as 70 miles per hour and above.

Could it be location?

a hurricane strikes and a rural area is without food or water. Three crews arrive. One can dispense needed supplies in 10 hours, a second in 15 hours, and a third in 20 hours. How long will it take all three crews working together to dispense food and water?

We’ll all heard of Hurricane Katrina, but what is actually the BIGGEST that’s ever been recorded?
Hurricanes over the US, I mean.

Thanks.

We are thinking of travelling to Puerto Rico this Fall. How is October? Is November better or worse? Is hurricane season a significant risk?
Websites seems to say that November is still hurricane season, but biggest risk is in August, September and October. Anyone have any experience with this?

Automobile related – Broken down car, no insurance, tickets, etc. Decline in Public Assistance – Current TANF benefits and food stamps combined are below the poverty level in every state; in fact, the median TANF benefit for a family of three is approximately one-third of the poverty level. Thus, contrary to popular opinion, welfare does not provide relief from poverty. Divorce – Divorce often leaves one of the spouses homeless. Most often it’s the father, but sometimes it’s the mother and children or everyone involved. Domestic Violence – Battered women who live in poverty are often forced to choose between abusive relationships and homelessness. Drug and Alcohol related problems – Rates of alcohol and drug abuse are disproportionately high among the homeless population. Illness – For families and individuals struggling to pay the rent, a serious illness or disability can start a downward spiral into homelessness, beginning with a lost job, depletion of savings to pay for care, and eventual eviction. Job loss – No income to pay rent. Lack of affordable housing- The lack of affordable housing has lead to high rent burdens (rents which absorb a high proportion of income), overcrowding, and substandard housing. Lack of child support – In families where child support is ordered but not paid, the decrease in income can lead to an inability to pay rent, utilities, or both. Low wages – Declining wages have put housing out of reach for many workers: in every state, more than the minimum wage is required to afford a one- or two-bedroom apartment at Fair Market Rent. Mental Illness – Approximately 20-25% of the single adult homeless population suffer from some form of severe and persistent mental illness. Natural Disaster / Fire – Situations where due to chance a fire, tornado, flood or hurricane renders housing inhabitable. Physical Disabilities – Disabled individuals may be unable to work or find appropriate employment. For those receiving SSI, they often struggle to obtain and maintain stable housing. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder – This disorder is common with veterans and those that have been in violent situations. It can make it difficult to have a stable life. Poverty – Being poor means being an illness, an accident, or a paycheck away from living on the streets. Roommates – When one or more roommates fall through with their end of the bargain, they can be a reason for others becoming homeless. Severe Depression – Can make it impossible for an individual to maintain a stable life. Tragedy – It is surprising how many people just quit functioning because their families died or were killed…sometimes recently…other times 15 years ago…other times 30 years ago. Not only can the above affect adults, it can affect the children and their education. Children deal with not only abuse or neglect, they also may run away. It is estimated that between 1.6 and 1.7 million youth run away or are forced to leave home each year. School is usually sought as a place of safety, unless you are homeless, then there are barriers. These barriers include being unable to meet enrollment requirements (including requirements to provide proof of residency and legal guardianship, and school and health records); high mobility resulting in lack of school stability and educational continuity; lack of transportation; lack of school supplies and clothing; and poor health, fatigue, and hunger. The numbers of who the homeless identify are shocking. The National Homeless Demographics is 45% are single men, 38% are families with children, 14% are single women, 3% are unaccompanied, 49% are African American, 32% are White, 12% are Latino, 4% are Native American, and 3% are Asian.

I’m interested if I can buy a 4×4 pickup that was involved in the floods from the hurricane. Did the dealers or insurance companies scrap all the vehicles? I’m a professional auto technician @ my hometown General Motors dealership for 20 years and I’m not afraid to buy one [if avaliable] and restore it for my own personal use. How would I get in contact with the dealers or insurance companies?

In general, how does a hurricane threat affect the price of oil?
Is supply so low from that area, that it really makes no difference?
