If this thing hits New York City think about
People living in high rises with no power or services.
In New Orleans Katrina got inside some of the hotels and knocked out the walls between the rooms, blowing out windows along the way. There was glass falling on to the streets for weeks
The higher you go the faster the winds gets. Rock a bye baby on the tree top when the wind blows the cradle will rock.
If the power mains are flooded with salt water it takes time a lot of time to get them repaired.
The sewers require power. No power, backed up sewers. When the water rushes out of a sewer the metal covers are forced off leaving a huge hole in the street covered with water. Don't walk in something you can't see.
If a building's basement floods the power distribution system, air conditioning controls, communications systems and generators will flood.
Those big advertising signs and awnings don't handle wind very well
Electricity loves water. Many people have died when they walked outside to look at the storm and a hot power line fell into the water they are standing in. Or A wet stick conducts electricity, don't move anything that could have power in it.
The restaurants will be closed, if they lose power they lose the contents of their freezers.
Oh yea, one more thing
If you lose power for more then just a couple of days Just tape the doors of the refrigerator closed with duct tape and throw it away. You will not want to clean it out
