    I'm starting a thread for hurricane Henri in case it turns out to be a nasty event. At this writing the hurricane is headed for New England; specifically towards New York's Long Island and Connecticut ... if the computer models are correct.

    I'm creating a specific thread for this weather event because several components can herein be gathered such as flooding damage, power outages, looting, ... . Instead of posting in numerous categories, all things Henri-related can be gathered here. Too, Henri could just head out to sea and this thread just go away. Such matters are in the hands of Higher Powers.

    Henri could be an interesting study in that the big storm is hitting an area where the population density is outrageously high -- way too many people packed into way too small of a region. Another point of interest for the prepping community will be how well these people are prepared; OR, how unprepared they are.

    By the way, this hurricane is named Henri, not Henry, so the pronunciation is "On-ree", French.

    Already, vandalism has occurred against equipment brought in to aid with hurricane preparations. Here is a link to a local station's report on the area's prepping for Henri's landfall. This report was given late last night Friday 20th Aug 2021. The weather reporter notes that the path of the hurricane had moved west, thus targeting more of Long Island.

    Note also in this report that utilities have told the community (specifically the area around Oyster Bay, where the reporter is located) that the power could be out for as much as seven to ten days. Local leaders call this "unacceptable". Hmmmm ..... Mother Nature is never in the negotiation mood. She does as She will.

    "Hurricane Henri could leave millions of people in New England without power for up to 10 days"

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/hurricane-henri-could-leave-millions-163419017.html

    "Power companies have warned of the possibility of extensive outages across New England, and in some areas residents could lose electricity for up to 10 days.

    "Long Island Power Authority, or PSEG-LI, which serves over 1 million people, said some residents should brace for outages of 7-10 days. It also urged people to be prepared.

    "'As the storm makes its way up the coast, employees are preparing for the possibility of high winds that can cause flying debris, and bring down trees and power lines,' Michael Sullivan, senior director of transmission and distribution, said in a statement. 'We encourage our customers to do the same at their homes and businesses.'

    "Eversource, New England's largest energy delivery company with more than 4 million customers, voiced similar concerns to its customers in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.

    "President and CEO Joe Nolan said during a Friday press conference that up to 49% of customers could be without power for several days."

    Bad memories of hurricane Sandy, November 2012:



    Twelve days after Sandy hit, hundreds of thousands were still without electricity, plus there were gas shortages for their vehicles. Power companies however were able to send out electric bills to those customers without power.

    Preppers who live where water supplies can be contaminated need not only water purification methodologies, but also water storage tanks. The people getting ready to get hit by Henri better put back a bunch of water in case electrical feed disruptions shut down clean-water pumping stations.

    The size of tanks we've bought are the 15 gallon plastic barrels. As I've said before, I always put a spigot on them so that accessing the stored water is as easy as turning a knob. If one is storing municipal water, the water is already chlorinated, so there's no real need to add any more chlorine. Adding chlorine is for longer term -- and a little chlorine goes a LONG way, so watch out about that. If you are storing well-water, adding a touch of chlorine may be a good idea. There are all manner of sources online telling you how much to use. One prepper storage item is stocks of bleach. Washing soaps must be put-back also.

    Here's a couple of photos off the web. I have these identical tanks.

    Looks like power company crews are really earning their pay!

    I thought the situation was going to be much worse. Henri was downgraded to a "tropical storm" before making landfall and this no doubt spared New England a lot of damage.

    https://weather.com/safety/hurrican...storm-flooding-power-outages-ny-nj-ct-ri-mass

    "Tens of thousands of people are still without power and flooding rain remains a threat in parts of the Northeast and New England where Henri moved through Sunday.

    "More than 130,000 homes and businesses were without power after the storm made landfall in Rhode Island Sunday afternoon, knocking down trees and power lines and bringing flooding rainfall to some areas.

    "By Monday morning, the number was down to about 58,000, according to poweroutage.us. Rhode Island had the highest number of outages after the storm, followed by Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Jersey."
