Another storm coming? Forecasters say nor’easter may hit East Coast late next week

northeaster_optOh, no!  There’s another storm headed for the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions but meteorogists say it’s too early to to get worried.

Gulp! Gulp! Where’s the Excedrin?

The storm may affect the regions anywhere between "Election Day (Tuesday) into next Thursday," the National Weather Service's prediction center said in a statement Thursday afternoon.

"Increasing winds along coastal New England and coastal Mid-Atlantic states Tuesday onward may lead to some coastal flooding and beach erosion," it added.

Forecaster Bruce Sullivan told the Huffington Post that the storm wouldn't be as bad as Superstorm Sandy and isn't tropical. But it could include snow in interior New England and New York, beach erosion and high winds for areas hit by Sandy and moderate or heavier rainfall. Winds could be about 30 to 40 mph.

"I wouldn't get too alarmed yet," Sullivan said. "But it's something we're going to be watching over the next few days and fine-tuning. Anything that could hamper clean-up efforts is something that could be watched."

The fact that it's six days out means "there's room for optimism," Sullivan said, but he added: "From what I'm Iooking at, there's a concern."

Heartbreaking to see it coming again, but I guess if we didn't wake up enough with the Franken-storm the first warning that Hashem sent us, we have to suffer another storm, not nice to compare but Pharaoh and the Mitzriyim also didn’t wake up from the Makos, so Hashem had to keep on pounding them with many more hardships till they eventually drowned.

The storm and the warning we just had wasn't very harsh to many of us, even though many suffered and some are still suffering, i.e. no phone service, no electric, long lines at gas stations and after waiting four hours in line they tell us “sorry buddy no more gas left” etc. I don’t get it. Haven't we just lived through a massive storm of destruction, how can we ignore it? Hashem is literally begging us to make big changes in our lives in all aspects; He is trying so hard to wake us up from our deeeeep sleeeep. Why we are still ignoring him? The proof that we are still ignoring him is that he is sending us another storm.

There are sections of the region that were damaged so badly beyond recognition. Houses burned to the ground, basements flooded, structures damaged beyond recognition, no refrigeration, no freezer, no hot water for Erev Shabbos showers, no stability, Thousands are trying to find a place for Shabbos. Boruch Hashem web sites have been set up for Brooklyn and Lakewood to help them, but it’s not enough to handle the thousands who still don’t have power, who will be spending Shabbos in the cold and dark, many are freezing not being able to sleep because it’s so cold without the heating that we have (come to feel as a necessity at) this time of the year.

Just in the past year: Worldwide, we have lost so many Rabonim, Roshai Yeshivas Gedolim, Rebbes, young children, young parents, so many NEW orphans, who are filling up our Shuls and saying Kaddish for their loved ones at such a young age, that’s enough to break my heart and make me cry out to Hashem saying “Hashem we are ready to live like a true Yid” get rid of our bad habits that the Yetzer Hora implanted inside of us.

The list goes on and on, how about the financial situation? NO JOBS, The rising cost of our simple everyday needs, like water, FOOD, batteries, gas, tuition, clothing, many services that we took for granted are becoming unaffordable.

We have entered a new era, a time that the world has changed completely from the way it was for the past 5772 years, our Hishtadlus is almost worthless, don’t we realize that with all the money in the world that thousands of us are ready to spend to get their electricity back on still they are totally helpless? No matter how wealthy we are, we are still helpless? For the big Chachomim (smarty pants) who think they can control Hashem, and the storm will not affect their electricity, by having generators, do they have sufficient gas or oil to run the generators? We all know that the answer is absolutely NOT; to them too, Hashem is sending a message saying “your money is worthless I won't enable you to purchase enough gas or oil to run your generators, because I want you to turn back to me and do Teshuva!!! Help me to bring the Golus to an end hoping to see the Geulah and Moshiach today.”

Take a quick look (online) to what happened at NYU Hospital in NYC they prepared all kind of generators and back ups, but at the end it “all” failed, they had to evacuate hundreds of sick patients.

Now a new storm is being forecasted and if we do real Teshuva we can at least prevent it from hitting our region, I beg you my family and friends, Klal Yisroel of all ages, please wake up now before we lose many more homes etc. before we encounter more tragedies so we can make Hashem proud of our new Derech our new and improved way of life to enable us to see the Bais HaMikdosh instead of another powerful rainstorm Chas VeSholom.

We all can only hope and pray that the east coast doesn't have to feel or go through anymore pain. I'm sure life is extremely tough right now for our fellow Americans but I have faith and hope you all will have some and trust in our country to help get your lives back to normal in a timely fashion. God bless and goidluck
