Re: Halloween Hurricane

After living on a barrier island on the South Jersey coast for almost 20 years, the northeasters of fall winter and spring were always the worst storms. Hurricanes would either blow by or land but there was only one high tide. The northeasters which either moved slowly or parked for a few days and spun were the damage producers.. Four or Six high tides drives a lot of water into the back bays and eos a lot of beach erosion.

They are a fact of life for coastal MidAtalntic and Northeast residents not anything new

The Weather Channel has now decided to "hype" the hysrteria by naming these storms. IMHO I beleive in the long run this will be a diservice to people as it will desensitize them on named storms as well as northeasters
