Was Sandy the Big One?
A recent report states that Hurricane Sandy was not the "Big One" that the east coast thinks it was. But before we get carried away and scare anyone, it should be mentioned that insurance company Swiss Re created the report that states a hurricane more devastating than Hurricane Sandy could make landfall and create $100 billion worth in damages along the east coast. Actually, it even claims that such a hurricane made landfall back in 1821. However, the tools we have for measuring storms today are obviously much more advanced than the tools used to measure the 1821 Norfolk-Long Island Hurricane. Some of this report is speculation and not fact, and although it’s hard to believe a hurricane causing more damage than Sandy, it is always important to be prepared for anything.
Hopefully no hurricane ever comes close to affecting the northeast the way Sandy did. But when any storm affects your town, big or small, Johnny On The Spot will be right there ready to help with the portable sanitation services required to protect the safety of ordinary people.
Emergency preparedness is key, and Johnny On The Spot can play a large role in ensuring that towns and cities in NJ, NY and PA are kept safe. In emergency situations, Johnny On The Spot will work in conjunction with FEMA efforts to assist affected areas. We will also work alongside city government during non-emergency situations or situations that do not qualify for support from FEMA.
Some Good News This Hurricane Season
Here’s the good news! Even though reports like the one by Swiss Re could have some truth behind them, meteorologists at AccuWeather.com predicted back in May that this hurricane season would be a subdued one.
The meteorologists predicted that just two big storms would make landfall between June and late October. So far, so good. Of course, many of the worst storms tend to take place around September and October.
"If we have a robust El Niño develop, then the numbers will be much lower and this could be one of the least active years in recent memory," AccuWeather.com senior meteorologist Dan Kottlowski said.
Here’s hoping Dan is right, but Johnny On The Spot will be ready, just in case.
