Re: Halloween Hurricane
If the National Hurricane Center and the weather services were not busy playing games with our tax dollars, the Bounty would have clearly known the risks - it was Thursday for heavens sake. They were in New London, CT. If you haven't been there, it's sheltered and deep, deep enough for HUGE tankers to go way up river.
The navy ships going out to sea are not in the same league as Bounty. They draw much more water, big ships have foundered in the past when huge waves allowed them to touch bottom in a deep trough. Bounty would be in no such danger in the Thames river.
