[Yahoo] Scientists warn California could be struck by winter ‘superstorm’ - Page 2

post #11 of 124
This is probably pretty exagerated. I live in Cali and more Places here are either pretty high elevation or completely unflat ground. Most homes in CA simply could not be flooded because they are on hills and they ones that arnt are in huge flat planes that are at least 400ft above sea level. There are only a few valleys and they are probably the only places that really might need to worry.

But hey if they didnt exagerate they would make less ad revenue.

Notice in the article how the scientist says the storm could last up to 40 days? Are they trying to say it could be of biblical proportions? This is just more global warming hype, nothing more.

You fellas had better start living in flats/apartments instead of detached houses. Every time a storm hits america i see flying roofs,garage doors and fallen trees smashing houses on TV :/.

I think what you're seeing are trailer homes.
Houses aren't made to withstand Tornadoes or Hurricanes.

I would rather risk being hit by a flying car than have to live in a building connected to other nasty ass people lol. Who knows what kind of bugs and rodents they are attracting to the building.

On topic, yea Cali sucks but if its destroyed all those Californians will be forced to move.....

....dun dun dun....

....back east!!! (NOOOOOOOOOOOOO)

If a major natural disaster were to strike a certain area of the country, I would hate to have a bunch of posts from me up on the internet saying how great it would be if it happened.

U know, this is probably nothing compared to the tsunami that is supposed to hit CA when the big section of hawaii that is falling away finially falls away competely. Theres always someone saying disaster is going to strike.
