The brain trust around here evacuated residents from Atlantic City (which was pretty much unscathed) to a shelter 30 miles inland that, you guessed it, flooded. Oy.
One of the local weather talking heads kept saying "Most of us in Philadelphia have never seen a hurricane make landfall. The last time it happened was in 1903".
