    Why is it when a hurricane hits, all of the coverage is focused on the beach or barrier island? Why does every news director think the key to hurricane coverage is to dispatch news person to beach with microphone and rain wear, dutifully reporting back that the waves are really big and the wind is really blowing--while just about completely ignoring the havoc occurring in the counties behind the beach?

    Some of the concern in the North is some areas that had already been flooded by previous rains just like Dennis did to us before Floyd. Also the population density is higher there which means potentially more property - they storm may not be quite as strong but that could be part of the reason they may end up with more damage when it is calculated in terms of money.

    I feel very sorry for everyone in Eastern NC who have been in the path of Irene as well as for those along the east coast. Even being 200 plus miles inland from the Outer Banks, I had a large pine tree to fall, pull down an electrical line and land on a 250 gal LP gas tank due to wind gusts in the 40's. Fran hit this area extremely hard with significant damage in Sept '96 when it came through this area and I will never forget it, nor Camille/Agnes (growing up) which hit central VA. It'll take a lot of prayer, patience, energy, elbow grease and time for repairs. Irene, like other strong storms, will go down in the history books, I'm afraid, affecting so many people in numerous states. It will be a major disruption of "normal life" for a long time. It's a life-changing event.

    Ironic? What does that mean? This hurricane is a tragedy. There can be no comparison of regions. Each state has unique geographical features that present different issues in this storm! People have died and more are at risk! Instead of worrying about comparisons, pray for relief, safety, and cooperation.

    ENC gets 10 inches of rain, heavy wind damage, major flooding and nearly 1 million people without power....yet the news media is covering the storm as if it's gonna have the same strength when it hits the NY/NJ area as it did on Saturday. PULEESE!
