The experience with Hurricane Irene is set forth.
Late last week, Hurricane Irene plowed through the Carolinas and along the   East Coast through New Jersey, New York City , Connecticut, other parts   of New England and Canada.

The rain is literally pounding down right now. The sheets of water coming off the roof are so heavy that you can't see through them and the wind is still howling out there.

Not much else to do since everywhere is closed and the satellite is out.      UPDATE:   Well, after a lot of wind and a lot of rain, the trees are still standing, the power never went out, and everything's already gone pretty much back to normal. …

Irene was reduced to tropical storm status when it hit the northeast, but still did over a billion dollars worth of damage in New York City and various points upstate, not even including a stop in New England.

CNN reports flooding in NY City including the subway. The financial damage? At least a billion or so! So far, not too many fatalities so that's good news (if any news could be called good in the case of a hurricane!). Let's pray things won't get worse from here!      Stay safe, Americans!

Over a million passengers are affected by Irene. 3 airports in NYC & Philadelphia & Boston airports are closed until the tropical storm (downgraded from hurricane) is over. So, if you are in the Eastern coast of U.S., you are not going anywhere for the next 2 days or so!
