    Wait for your next Cat 3 or above hurricane! It has happened in NYC and Long Island before, but its been a while. While 125 mph wind gust is scary, try that as a sustained wind for 30 min-1 hr and 75 mph+ for 16 hours. Then we'll talk.

    Is a microburst anything like a wind sheer? Incredibly frightening. I was in Jersey at the time and the sky was black as night.

    No one blamed Bush for the hurricane idiots, he was blamed for the aftermath. First off it was the Bush administration who was warned about the weather conditions that were to come and who also knew the leevees were garbage and should have contacted someone of his republican homeboys to fix the fence in their own backyard if you will. Instead,they were too g.d. busting up fences in someone else's yard I.e. The fight should have occurred between engineers and the officials responsible for overseeing the leevees. Lets not forget to mention however that it was you alls dear Bush that sent no one to New Orleans for 5 days. Yet we had jets that made it across the world to tsunami affected lands in a number of hrs. You people can say what you would like, but know that President Obama is the best thing that ever happened to this b.s. AMERICA. Bush is the reason why you jerks have no jobs and time to be on here talking foolishness. So for that, thank him! And if you support him that much, remember to talk up for him on judgement day! See how far that gets you! Lol!

    Hey midwesterners,

    We all know the only interesting thing about where you live is the tornados, however we aren't used to this. You sound so uneducated when you act like this isn't a phenomena. The next time you have some newsworthy event in your area we will say "thats nothing, you should come to NYC" haha.
