I know you're there, but i was on the phone with my buddy in Huntington and he's thoroughly pissed off telling me that this is typical US media fear mongering. He and his family are fine.

Can we really blame a storm for killing two surfers? or can we blame surfing for killing two surfers. And some idiot that went swimming out in the surf in Florida? A guy that had a heart attack doing work in his yard?

This sort of fear peddling if you were to ask me, is insulting to area's actually ravaged by real natural disasters. Not because of the heads up it gives folks, I don't think playing it safe is a bad thing. But when the main goal is commerce.... selling ads, boosting the retail economy on the east coast..... I get a bit angry.

Stay safe cubed.... and thanks for the reports man.
