With TS Irene, here in the Hudson Valley, there was damage I have never seen before. Homes were swept off their foundations and cars completely under water. I myself live in a mountainous area and still had several inches of water downstairs, and I was a lucky one. Some of my neighbors had the downstairs destroyed. I had no power for several days and threw out most of my fridge food. I want to prevent as much as possible loss with my fish tanks. Irene cost me way too much to think this storm is "over rated and "hype". I was not prepared for Irene, ...thinking it was all hype, and it cost me thousands. For me...I will prepare for the worst...don't want to, nor can I afford to go through that again.
