Did anyone get 'freaked out?' I think we're all accustomed too the hype by now.

Agreed. I noticed Cantore showed up in a flooded city here interviewing flood victims as they came out on stretchers.

any half wit can figure out the severity of a storm by the blitz of information available,if you've accumulated enough money to have purchased a waterfront home or even one within a flood zone, and with the 48hr forecast ability, don't leave the area...your doing society a favor by removing said dimwit from society. gene pool needs skimming every once in a while.
jim was local some years back, chatted briefly with him in convenience store..he's a tool. class A.

Sheppo reacts the same way if he walks out of Fox studios in NYC, it's raining and somebody isn't there to hold his umbrella.

Was Shep right that storm could kill you?

Maybe me, but not my kids.......I think that was the point. All the hype Shep put into it. I didn't even hear Cantori say that.

Well 20 people have been reported dead so I guess he was correct. Maybe his candid warning made some people actually think and go to higher ground. Every time there is a major storm people who think they can ride it out die.

There were a lot of people that didn't evacuate when they were told to when Katrina hit, were they the "smart ones" for ignoring the hype?

They are still rebuilding here from Sandy, do what you want, if they tell me to go....I'm gone.

Most of you guys got VERY lucky with this one, a few miles west and this thread would have a completely different flavor.

I never paid any attention too winter storms until they started naming them, Who would have ever guessed.

They name them because it changes the deductible on most homeowners policies. Doesn't make the storm any worse then before....

Oh yeah, I'm aware of the underlying intentions.

Shep is a total weenie. Waaaaaay to emotional for the job.

Look at his ratings demographics. Captain Metrosexual.

The thing is that most people forget that all emergency services get suspended during the height of these storms. That means no Fire Dept, EMS or Police.

People who want to take the risk is fine with me. Lived in Florida all my life and will promise you I'm am going to get my family far gone from anything Cat 2 or stronger. All it takes is one gust or one of the many tornadoes that spin up to drop a big tree on your house and hurt someone bad and you have no way to get medical assistance, then what.

Yea sure, they hype it up a bit. They need to, to get people that have never experienced a big storm to get out of harms way. For those that live in flood prone areas you only need to see how fast that storm surge can come one time to get your ass away from that.

You don't know what your talking about. The name has nothing to do with the deductible its how they become classified and if the National Weather Service issues certain warnings for the state or states.

So when your policy states a different deductible for a "named storm" it only pertains to the classification? Seems that how it should be worded.
