Better safe than sorry

Question: Did the Authorities in New York overreact to Hurricane Irene?


All that remains of this woman's historic cottage home, is the stairs. 

No! If anything we really needed to learn our lessons from Hurricane Katrina. If there is the possibility of danger and potential loss of life, it is better to evacuate & err on the side of caution. 
Of course it was an inconvenience, but this storm, even as a Category 1, packed a powerful punch and did a huge amount of damage. 42 lives were lost. Billions of dollars of damage.  I commend NYC authorities for doing the responsible thing & preparing for the worst.
