45. the hype can be sickening... but.....

This storm deserves it. It will be every bit of hazel. Hazel hit sc/nc in 1954 and the terms used to describe its aftermath included "annihilated". Ever pier for 170 miles of coastline was gone. As few homes as there were then, almopst all of them were wiped out.

This has the same basic structure. It is the real deal. It can be a lot worse if the system ends up stalling just offshore, which is what some models are showing.

Trump is largely irrelevant in the planning cycle though. It is largely up to his agencies. Most of FEMA has been gutted through loyalty purges. Those left are bitter and afraid. Even if they want to do a good job, they probably can't.

But what will really frost peoples netherlands will be the lack of effort to clean up and rebuild. This is an administration that sees these storms as buying opportunities. So don't expect a lot of road reconstruction, or emergency electrical/water/sewage infrastructure repairs, or even clean up funds.

That is where the federal gov'ts involvement typically is. Money is behind all of it, and this congress doesn't like emergency funding disaster relief.

Can you imagine the howells from the tea party if the "establishment" wants a lot of money to rebuild the east coast after ignoring texas and florida? It's gonna be a shite show. Nothing will be done before miidterms. That would be the case under a normal admin, but it will be worse under this one.
