Yep...and with the sewers clogged, ground saturated, trees and poles already damaged it isn't going to take a lot to be even more disruptive...hopefully it will go out to sea.

Glad I am not working this month, most of my time is spent in NYC airspace. Good month to sit it out. NJ was already a stink hole.

One of the smallest states and the most populated per square mile. Not the place to be during a storm. Traffic is horrific on a good day. I had to move out of the state and live in Tenn. , Maine and New Mexico to see how nice it can be with out bumper to bumper....

I do not regret moving out.

You have to remember, some cities like Philadelphia have water and sewer systems that are well over 100 years old (Philly's is about 170), and until the 50s it was SOP to simply drain sewage into the rivers ("the solution to pollution is dilution"). Didn't work so well as the cities got bigger. So now we treat wastewater before dumping, but we still have combined sewers, because we have literally several thousand miles of sewer pipe and storm water inlets. All of it goes to the treatment plants, unless heavy rain causes overflow conditions that the plants can't handle. We're working on it, but it is a project of decades.
