    The weather channel and grocery stores made up the hurricane

    Always hyping hurricanes and snowstorms up just to get people to watch the channel and buy all the supplies. Then of course it magically gets less strong and veers off course

    spot on with thread

    seems like they always begin coverage with the worst case scenario - only they don't actually say that's what they are doing

    if you believed all of their hyped forecasts, you'd hardly go outside.

    Fully agree with the hyping it but it's kind of difficult for a 350 mile wide storm to veer off course .
    The course just simply shifted to fukking up someone elses life instead of the initially poor souls .

    Grocery stores do not gain from storm hype. It just shifts sales from certain days to others.

    I was in the Dominican Republic last year when a Hurricane came towards us. I was watching one of the US channels and they had a guy standing by the ocean in a raincoat telling us that the winds were close to 100 mph. His hair was blowing, etc. Well I live within walking distance. I have a wind meter. It was 30 mph gusting to 40mph.

    the looters who bought claw hammers and pry bars to remove all the plywood and plastic will have a field day now with easy pickings since all the residents who fell for all this hype and fled will get stuck in monumental traffic jams trying to return to save their belongings. officials will now say you cannot return until the 4" of water recedes in your neighborhood. in the meantime the looters will have already pawned or posted their belongings on e bay or craigs list.

    if you live in a low lying area you are either poor, stupid or both. those people can't evacuate. they have no means or no money to do it.

    a flash flood maybe. but days of steady rain like this may be gives you ample time to escape it. people that don't think by staying they can protect their property. that usually fails.

    First responders in North Carolina are scrambling to rescue residents stranded due to raging flood waters caused by Hurricane Florence.


    Officials in New Bern, a coastal town in Craven County, North Carolina, said at least 150 people were "awaiting rescue" early Friday morning as the dangerous hurricanemoved ashore, packing 90-mph winds.

    For the most part I agree with the OP, however this storm is huge.
    So the winds calm down to a mere 100 MPH, it's crawling at 5 MPH.
    It's going to rain hard for 2 days straight in NC, this is inevitable.

    Usually you get over hype regarding storms, this one is the real deal.
