September 14, 1944, the Great Atlantic Hurricane of 1944, a category 2 hurricane, battered the coast of New Jersey. Nine people were killed, 390 people injured (more than any other state), more than 3,000 homes damaged, and more than 400 homes crushed and completely destroyed. It caused $25 million (1944 USD) in damage. Pictured is the boardwalk in Atlantic City, NJ.

One thing that is never mentioned with these devistating storms is the amount of development that has taken place. Everything is climate change/warming nothing about all the land that has been paved over in the last 50 years. Rain water USED to percolate down through the ground and root system eventually hitting our waterways. Now it runs off roofs, driveways, streets and parking lots right into our storm drains(till they clog with debris) straight into our waterways.

Can't imagine how bad flooding will be after the current "mega warehouse" boom is over. Not to mention all the new required traffic "improvements" that are needed.... sorry my bad I forgot traffic circles fix everything.... o_O

Some recent disaster death tolls in PA in recent times...yet dems demand we spend another $3.5 trillion federal to fight the existential threat of climate change...plus making us pay more for unreliable green energy, electric vehicles, don't eat meat, etc. etc.

1972: Hurricane Agnes - Wikipedia U.S. death toll = 128

1977: Johnstown flood of 1977 - Wikipedia U.S. death toll = 84

2021: Hurricane Ida - Wikipedia U.S. death toll = 96

Pennsylvania's Opioid Epidemic = 4,880 in 2020 alone.

2020 Homicides in Philthy = about 500, in Pitt = about 120.
