    Considering ‘Jersey Shore’, this is proof God does not send hurricanes to punish evil people.

    Granted, the 1991 ‘Perfect Storm’ Hurricane didn’t make landfall… but it sure did hit us with a hurricane level storm surge. My roommate (I was in college) got temporarily trapped on a PATH train (subway between NYC and NJ) when the Hudson river started to pour down the station steps into the tunnels.

    I’m not THAT old, and I remember Hurricane Donna. From Wikipedia:

    September 12, 1960 – Hurricane Donna, the only tropical cyclone to bring hurricane force winds to every state on the East Coast of the United States, passes New Jersey as a Category 2 hurricane while moving at a high speed. Damage is significant along the coastline, but is less than in other states struck directly by Donna. The hurricane causes winds gusts of up to 105 mph (169 km/h), heavy rainfall, and a storm surge of 6 feet (2 m).[27] Well–executed warnings result in no direct deaths, though one indirect death occurs from a heart attack.[1]
