Rush Transcript Summary

A: Oyster Creek Nuclear Generating Station in New Jersey

Bryan Norcross, Hurricane Specialist at The Weather Channel:

  • What we are seeing is a worse storm than we had been predicting
  • We think we are going to see the worse storm ever in some locations
  • Extraordinarily beyond anything really we even imagined as we had been forecasting this for the last week
  • What this is going to mean is that the water is going to be higher pushing against the Jersey Shore than even we had been talking about
  • Anybody left at the Jersey Shore needs to get to the highest place possible
  • It’s going to be like 1962… It was obliterated up and down the Jersey Shore, both from the Bay side and the Ocean side… Obliterated
  • This is just going to be a stunningly spectacular event in the worst possible kind of way

    "It’s going to be like 1962… It was obliterated up and down the Jersey Shore…"

    Ah, yes. 1962. The year I graduated from Teaneck High in New Jersey. Back then they weren't trying to exploit the event on prime time.

    Well, news is a 24 hour business now. Still, i'm saddened for the flooding of people and wildlife. The loss of the HSS Bounty and some of the crew at sea trying to get to safe harbor is pretty sad, too. It was a beautiful vessel. Now is the winter migration for birds using what wetlands they can still find on their way south. Their populations are already so low. Few will count their numbers or even give them a passing thought. Lots of ground nesting animals will flood out, but, at least the nesting season is over. They will go unremarked as well accept by a lone soul here or there. Lots of chemicals are already entering the water from storage facilities. Some NPP's are setting to shut down. Hopefully the storm won't linger too long in any one place with such heavy rains as it is carrying. I hope our enenews blogger, bmurr, living in a ground level apartment just a block from the Jersey shore decided to evacuate after all.

      I'm astounded the Bounty was offshore of Cape Hatteras. It is the graveyard of ships and to go there during a bad storm????

        It was trying to outrun the storm and get south of it. It's actually a replica, of course, but a darn good one and i think it had been damaged from Hurricane Irene, so perhaps they thought to head south.

    There is ALWAYS loss of life and property during a storm. They will pump up the casualty stats by including anyone who, for instance, had a heart attack during the storm. The MSM rarely offers useful information for people wondering about the best action to take. Ever notice how they love to scream doomsday headlines and then publish a picture of some fool standing at the shoreline watching huge waves crashing? The only casualty of the 2011 Japan tsunami on our west coast (that I know of) was a guy who just had to go down to the water to see what all the excitement was about.

    I saw a picture on one of the web sites of a kid jogging along the edge of the surf with the storm surge in the background. Who would let their child go to the beach at a time like this!? My mother made us kids get out of the water when a lightning storm sprang up. Jeez, what a killjoy she could be!

    @amberlight I thought you were going to the storm personally to tell us firsthand what the eye looked like? Why haven't you left yet?
