Dunno if anyone has seen this b4. It's a newspaper print from 1889 I thought it was interesting and shows what will happen again sooner or later. We are actually due for this kind of storm. Over due actually....It's from Sept. 18th 1889.
I forget the name of the island which at one time was located off Long Island NY. It had hotels and the like built on it and no longer exists. Even today dishes from the old hotels wash up on Long Island beaches after storms. Given the crappy construction I've seen all over town, it is a given that someday a "Big One" is going to come along and do some serious damage to OC and the surrounding areas. Unfortunately, my home will probably be one of the ones lost.
