52. I would warn people who might be OK.
Edited on Sat Aug-27-11 12:06 PM by kdmorris
Always... I'm sorry, but did I somewhere say that I didn't think that people should be warned about the potential impacts of the storm and shouldn't prepare for the storm?

All I said is that hype surrounding the storm (not the predicted path or predicted intensity) will cause the loss of life next time around. Saying that this is the 'storm of the century" or that it will cause "unprecedented destruction" or "will end life as we know it for months"... is hyperbole and if the media says that about every storm... people will tune it out when they need to listen next time.

Edited to fix grammar.
