If you lived in the path of Hurricane Sandy coming ashore would you refuse to leave your home?


I am watching the news about Hurricane Sandy and there are stories about people refusing to leave their homes. There are even people out walking around on the beaches and board walks taking pictures even though they are in danger of getting swept away in the rising water. New York City Police are starting to arrest people who refuse to leave areas where water and wind speeds are rising. I am amazed at the boldness of people who have not left areas that are being evacuated. It is surprising that people ignored weather warnings and waited until the last minute to prepare for the storm.

    I agree. Everyone needs to be responsible and make their own choice. Due to skills and supplies, a nurse or Dr. with a whole house generator, food, water, and other supplies would be better off staying put than a gamer living in mom's basement.

    Flaco, no one would have to ask me twice. I'd take a seat on the wing of a plane! Those pictures of the ocean made a believer out of me!

    Great point JThomp42 - I don't think people think about the first responders who as part of their job have to come knock on doors and tell people to leave their homes. They are unable to evacuate with their families because of us.
