"On that note: It must be possible to build houses that can withstand strong winds a flooding."

I live in a 160 year old house built with stone walls a foot and a half thick.

I'm struggling to think how we can build homes that are storm-proof. :P

terrac, generally modern construction quality is shoddy. People in the us are only concerned with square footage(lots of it). We are so used to buying cheap consumer crap for everything that some of us accept that in our houses. Also we ignore history and build in inappropriate places.

On that note: It must be possible to build houses that can withstand strong winds a flooding. Just build low concrete bunkers, sealing them off the water should be easy. Or is it cheaper in the long run to just built cheap houses, let them be destroyed and build them again? I've heard some things about american houses...

The government wants you to be scared and to buy plastic sheeting and duct tape because they own stock in it.

Reporting in from Jersey here, had to evacuate LBI and just basically grabbed as much as possible out of the basement as possible. As for the houses in LBI, all anyone can do is wait and hope for the best.

Subushie and El Chinche, I should've dedicated my Facebook note to y'all, lol. Me, living in the midlands of South Carolina, I never really had to experience a hurricane. However, I do know that my state's coastline (along with Florida and North Carolina) spent a good portion of the 90s getting hit by hurricanes. It's nothing new. It's just a big storm; you spend some time in your basement and enjoy your family and be thankful you're alive. So what if your house gets blown over? Houses can be rebuilt, possessions can be replaced, but you and your loved ones cannot.

The worst thing that's probably gonna happen is Jersey Shore is gonna get washed away and we won't get to watch Snooki be an idiot for a little while. Oh WAH!

Yup El_chinche; It's the east. If anything happened to New York or D.C. that was even 1/4 of the damage we have seen in our time in the south. It would have (probably will) 24hour coverage, about how devastating it is to be without power for 4 days, or how no one could get around because of the four or five days a tree was in the road.

Hunker down; suck down a Bloody Mary, and chill the drat out East Coast. You will be fine.

Having lived in Florida all of my life ( i know..fml) I find the over reactions to this hurricane amusing. My family used to live in Homestead when hurricane Andrew hit (the worst/costliest hurricane in US history before Katrina) granted I was only five at the time, but I still remember that horrible howling sound during the storm and the ensuing anarchy that followed it. Then we moved to the treasure coast only to have to go through the 2004/2005 hurricane seasons. Katrina hit us first before it made it's way to Louisiana. I can't even remember all of the names of the minor hurricanes that have hit us. We rode all of them out. Unless it at least a cat 3 hurricane, no one here will even consider panicking like you guys up north. Irene hardly seems like threat to most people around here. You guys up north will be fine. Just don't do anything stupid and secure all your valuables.

the_windy, where are you? It says you live in Canada, and unless you were vacationing somewhere down south, there's no possible way you could have already been hit by this particular hurricane.

We're Americans! It's nothing we haven't weathered before! Of course, I'm out west and the biggest storm I've seen dropped hail about 1/2 inch in diameter. It hurt, at least.

It's really not that bad. It is only a category 2 with winds right now at 100mph; that will only go lower because it's making landfall. I've been through worse; the most that is gonna happen is some downed trees and power outages that will last less then a week.
