Earthquake:So as we all know we had an earthquake here on the east coast, and might I say it was the coolest thing i've ever experienced. But who was in the ocean or on the beach when it happened? I would like to know how it felt there!
Hurricane Irene:The East Coast is getting waves from 5-40 foot? Sounds pretty awesome, but who actually has the balls to go out there? I would ride clean 20 foot, but from what i'm hearing the ocean is going be crazy! 50-70 mph on shore winds? that would blow you off your board! So who on here is planning to go out in this? And sad news, but my aunt says Ocean City, MD is most likely going to be evacuated. She is with Ocean City counsel so she would know
I was out on a boat in about 60 feet of water when it hit and didn't feel a damn thing.
I don't think anything is going out surfing in 50-70 knot onshore winds. Might get some waves before or after though...
As far as OCMD being evacuated that sounds awesome to me. There is no way that a 3-4 foot high sea-wall is holding back a full blown hurricane, if it comes to that. And the last thing oc needs is a bunch of tourists in town when emergency crews are trying to work.
Yeah... lots of sand moving.. but no surfing. MOST Nj surfers cant handle 20ft. Unless you frequent hawaii or such.... no matter what you guys say. 7ft. is big.... there calling for 15+! with 50 mph winds. Like said... there will be surfing before and after the storm.
To early to evacuate in my mind. But it's your choice. You'll definitely beat the traffic if it comes to that. But, I think as the week goes on the forecast will put Irene further and further offshore. As of now, I'll be focusing on the clean up on Sunday.
i'm not really liking the latest gfs projections...i'll be bugging out of oc,nj if that forecast holds up over the coming days. for me, irene has ceased to be a potential swell maker & has become a serious concern. evacuation is a real possibility; better safe than sorry & all that (plus i live on the 2nd floor).
the earthquake was "interesting". it was the 2nd one i've felt in my life...the first was in CA when i was about 10. "cool" is not a word i'd use to decribe it..."sickening" or "unnatural" maybe...IMO, the ground just isn't supposed to move that way.
i don't live in oc.. i have a place there.. but i was saying an evacuation is a possibility not that its gonna happen haha.. but who knows what will happen.. it could die out or go east and not even hit the mid alantic! but im with you guys on the clean up it should be awesome
