May God Have Mercy
BIG, and my prayers are with those affected by this monster storm.
I read of a 13 foot surge of water through lower Manhattan. Incalculable damage.
Storms can be fierce-once upon a few decades ago when I was in the Coast Guard, my ship ran into
three different storms going through the English Channel. Rough, rough weather.
A capstan-if you don't know what it is, just imagine a big heavy metal drum bolted to the deck of a ship which is used to turn/hold lines (big ropes).
After those storms we found that one of our capstans had its top sheared off by the force of the storm.
I can't imagine what is happening to the East Coast. May God keep safe those souls in the storm.
