The preparations have been made...how bad will the storm actually be?
The honest answer is that it's a bit of a wait-and-see proposition, but there are a few things that seem clear and I try to explain them in this video. I think the biggest point I can convey is that the stronger wind gusts with potential to cause damage will occur as just that - gusts. Not a constant blow, but rather bursts of wind that cause damage in various spots at various times, mostly between 8 PM and 2 AM, and especially 11 PM and 2 AM.
