I live on Long Island probably 5 feet above sea level. I'm hoping all the news stations are exaggerating. They tend to do that.

And I don't have a generator, no idea how to do that car thing, and no battery-powered air pump. If my fish could talk I'm sure they'd give me thorough tongue-lashing.

I'm hoping I'll be okay though. I only have four platies in my 38 gallon, my 10 gallon's gone, and the rest of my fish are labyrinth fish. Just gonna hope for the best.

There is a LBI and it's a pretty narrow strip of land.

Lbi is in NJ almost straight across from Philly, about 9 miles north of Atlantic City. We spend a lot of time there in the summer. It will be heartbreaking if it gets washed away like they are predicting! I know it's been evacuated as well as Staten Island in NY. Please be safe everyone!!!!

Just saw pictures of my town ( Seaside Heights ) and I'm going to assume we don't have a house anymore.

Good luck to everyone and thank you for your kind words.
