    What`s weird about that? That`s the best way to keep it safe. That`s normal to see in the Gulf South (where I live) any time a hurricane comes.

    You NE`ers are wimps. Irene`s only a Cat1, and you`re all freaking out. Get back to me when you have multiple Cat3-Cat5 hurricanes a year.

    "You NE`ers are wimps. Irene`s only a Cat1, and you`re all freaking out."

    Yes, when it comes to hurricanes, we are wimps. But, it was forecast to hit us as a Cat 3 when we started freaking out. And, we don`t freak out about temps dropping below 60, or a few inches of snow. It`s all about what you`re used to. Personally, I`ll take 2 feet + of snow in 24 hours over multiple cat 3`s in one year.

    I find it so odd when I think about how people have to load up on supplies, and move into their basement, or stay at a family member`s house until the storm passes. I have never had to worry about that in my life.
    Strange how nothing seems to effect where I live. Even the winter`s aren`t that bad. Worst is the humidity in the summer, but you get used to it. We had an earthquake here last year, but it wasn`t even strong enough to tip over anything. You couldn`t even feel it if you weren`t in a high-rise.

    I remember everyone freaking out about Hurricane Floyd 11 years ago (which ended up being overhyped as a total disaster), and it even followed a near same path as Irene is today. I`m not letting my guard down as there`s still going to be strong winds and flooding, but I think this mass hysteria the weather channel is presenting is a big overreaction.

    @the windy. I agree, I live in North West Arkansas and nothing ever happens here, mild summers and winters, tornadoes seem to always skirt around us, no earth quakes or major disasters ever. I think I need to move.

    most hotels do this- it`s their best chance at saving their furniture...nothing to see here.

    @LazyMe484

    The ocean has salt in it and tends to be cold sometimes- whereas a pool is usually a safer place for kids and is much easier to control then the ocean.

    "You NE`ers are wimps. Irene`s only a Cat1, and you`re all freaking out." Get back to me when you have multiple Cat3-Cat5 hurricanes a year."

    He lives in a place that totally shuts down if there`s a half-inch of snow. If there`s a threat of snow, he and the local lemmings immediately rush to their local market and buy up all the bread and milk.

    Are the residents of areas in New York only a few feet above sea level simply smarter than the average southerner for having the common sense to get out of the way before the storm surge?

    "Get back to me when you have multiple Cat3-Cat5 hurricanes a year."

    If you happen to live on the Gulf Coast, the only years of "multiple Cat 5`s" were 2005, and 2007. The statistics readily available from any number of sources sort of shoots holes in the picture you`re trying to paint about the frequency of storms you claim to suffer through.

    Saves them space, and I`m sure they are made to withstand Chlorine and water. Besides, if a window breaks in the resort they could cause more trouble than they are worth.

    How does that work at all? The rain will overflow the pool and combined with the wind it`ll still float away.

    I was stationed at Camp Lejeune, NC for 4 years. Every years I was there we got at least 1 catagory 2 or 3 hurricane. What`s the big freakin` deal over this cat 1?

    @SarahofBorg

    They`re not floating... they`re on the floor of the pool.. This does actually keep them from flying off as the water weights them down to the bottom of the pool..

    To further explain..

    Doing this prevents damage and loss to their furniture because it sinks to the bottom of the pool, weighted down by the water. When the wind picks up, it will blow across the top layer of water, following the level ground. Some water will splash out in waves, but the furniture at the bottom will remain tightly below the surface.

    "How does that work at all? The rain will overflow the pool and combined with the wind it`ll still float away."

    Nope doesn`t work that way. This is a common practice by resorts in hurricane/tropical cyclones resort areas. The rain water does not get high or deep enough and drains away.

    However if the ocean surge does come up that high enough. Then yes it will move the furniture. At that point the furniture will not matter much by hotel management damage view and insurance will be needed for more than pool side loss.
