Is New York About To Be Hit By A Perfect Storm?

Tyler Durden's picture


While John Travolta will always love 'Sandy', New York City (and for that matter much of the Atlantic Coast) may well want to forget the name after the weekend. Tropical Storm Sandy is destined to roll into the mid-Atlantic and New England from Friday but has some extra-special surprises possible with it. As Wunderground notes, if Sandy gets caught up with a trough approaching the Eastern US and then that combines with the fact that Monday is a full moon - meaning astronomical tides will be at their peak, increasing storm surge concerns, we could see a replay for the 1991 'Perfect Storm' that wreaked so much personal and property damage. We hear California is nice this time of year?

Dear Sandy,

Please hit wall street and make your way to the FRB and pay the bernake a visit.

Thanks a bunch,

Time to bail out Manhattan with more taxpayer money. Whisper rumor is that Manhattan banks will receive 250 billion federal reserve notes for each 1/10th of an inch of rain that falls as a consequence of this weather event. The BLS is already making especially seasonal-ly adjustments to employment data based on projections of this future weather event.

Paul Krugman just wrote a letter to President Obama, Timmay Geithner & other high ranking government officials, requesting that U.S. Government Agencies seed these clouds and do anything and everything else in their power to enhance the destructive nature of this storm system, just prior to landfall, in an attempt to facilitate the most catastrophic damage possible, as a stimulative event.

The part that made me most dubious was actually the part about the hurricane. They imply there was something suspicious about no news coverage about a hurricane off the coast on 9/11 which wasn't getting any news play yet no hurricane in that position has ever circled back to hit the coast. Why would there be any coverage of a storm that had zero chance of hitting the coast? Still it raised interesting questions.

I'm guessing that in all the fuss around the storm, some bags of votes for Obama will get accidentally misplaced, and then "discovered" on Weds November 7th.

If they are needed, of course.

Yeah, more. Seek not to understand, nor to read His tongue of naughts and ones, but to do His will. Put aside childish dreams of freedom, folkdom and openness. Obama and Romney are friends of His Bandish Back-up Bank, which is not an openly body, nor of the Banded Rikes of Wineland, but homely, true and of the Lord. His mains that be have looked kindly on them and bought them. This is the up-time, and 'tis time to buy. The Lord's work is being done by those whom He hath set to do it.

Perhaps the best place to follow Sandy (next to ZH of course):


The Northeast U.S. scenario
If Sandy makes landfall farther to the north near Maine and Nova Scotia, heavy rains will be the main threat, since the cold waters will weaken the storm significantly before landfall. The trees have fewer leaves farther to the north, which will reduce the amount of tree damage and power failures compared to a more southerly track. However, given that ocean temperatures along the Northeast U.S. coast are about 5°F above average, there will be an unusually large amount of water vapor available to make heavy rain. If the trough of low pressure approaching the East Coast taps into the large reservoir of cold air over Canada and pulls down a significant amount of Arctic air, the potential exists for the unusually moist air from Sandy to collide with this cold air from Canada and unleash the heaviest October rains ever recorded in the Northeast U.S., Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick. This Northeast U.S. scenario would probably cause damages near $100 million dollars.

The mid-Atlantic U.S. scenario
Landfall Monday along the mid-Atlantic coast on Monday, as predicted by the ECMWF and NOGAPS models, would likely be a billion-dollar disaster. In this scenario, Sandy would be able to bring sustained winds near hurricane force over a wide stretch of heavily populated coast, causing massive power outages, as trees still in leaf fall and take out power lines. Sandy is expected to have tropical storm-force winds that extend out more than 300 miles from the center, which will drive a much larger storm surge than its winds would ordinarily suggest. The full moon is on Monday, which means astronomical tides will be at their peak for the month, increasing potential storm surge flooding. Fresh water flooding from heavy rains would also be a huge concern. Given the ECMWF's consistent handling of Sandy, I believe this mid-Atlantic scenario has a higher probability of occurring than the Northeast U.S. scenario. However, it is likely that the models are overdoing the strength of Sandy at landfall. The models have trouble handling the transition from tropical storm to extratropical storm in these type of situations, and I expect that the 940 mb central pressure of Sandy predicted at landfall Monday in Delaware by the ECMWF model is substantially overdone.

Put no troth in waning or waxing moons, storms, black Mondays or heavenly tokens. Instead, put thy full troth in the Lord and His mains that be. This is an utterly bullish time. He that buyeth what's beloved of Him shall be spared. Buy His cheapings till the Kingdom come. There is a reckoning for all things, though no man understand it and it be spoken in naughts and ones, His tongue. These are the up-times, so take heart! The Lord will spare New York, if only for His street and His mains thereat. Furthermore, its indwellers have every rake to dance and sing His name, as His Bandish Back-up Bank is found there!

Please, God! Serve justice on the filthy scum that has raped the US economy for 200 years. Ten feet of water covering Manhatten would make me the happiest man on earth. And, I'm not a terrorist, muslim, or lunatic. I'm praying......

What California needs is drilling. Lots and lots of oil drilling, onshore and off.

"We hear California is nice this time of year?"

That is definitely not the case. This stuff is not reported by the MSM but I have it on good authority that there are freaks, liberals, the 47% and zombies wandering the streets through a fog of chemtrails looking for illuminati.

Look elsewhere for your places to bunker down.

Oooooh.  Astrologically, with a Mars/Jupiter opposition during a full moon and Lunar Node conjunct Mercury, Sandy the Saint/Slut/Astrologer predicts communications chaos and an event that wreaks of "political/military cover". Hummm....

Monday's full moon in taurus (values, monies) when set for NY time 3:49pm shows an 8th house sun/saturn opp. moon 2nd, with a watery pisces ascendant. . .

quickie analysis says restrictions on that which is valued/monies, including unexpected losses/betrayals, varied amongst the individuals of course, but overall, NY has some sneaky shit outed. . .

fingers crossed, eh Sandy. . . ~.~

A 5 large donation to charity of Barry's choice if he'll release his academic records. If he's running low on cash to repay that 15 large loan from BofA he might release the grades at midnight, Nov. 5th.

It seems to be his solution for everything else. I'm sure it'll
