You have seen the surfers who go to the beach in the teeth of a major storm, and the drivers who simply won't get off the road against all advisories. Now, watch the guy who had his phone creating vide out his front door, seemingly laughing off the storm until...well, you watch the video.

We think he may be looking at buying a new vehicle depending on how much damage there is, and what kind of insurance he has. If your car is damaged or flooded from the storm, or you know someone who is in that boat, so to speak, read out advice on what to do next here.

        So, individual that still believes in invisible friends; Who's God was it that created inclement weather?
          • 2 Years Ago
          @Renjhano Jorge
          It was God who gave the orders to the inclement weather where to go, and where not to go-when to start and when to stop. God directs and controls inclement weather as he see's fit, and there's nothing a believer or especially a non-believer like you can do about it except pray for mercy.

          And if I must add, that same wind is invisible and you believe in that.

      These events take place in the south at least twice a year every year and we don't go nutso like that. These northners just can't a little wind and rain.

        Wow you're soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo COOL. You are the only person who has ever been in bad weather, and everybody needs to know. Everybody who gets freaked out by storms is so stupid.

        Go easy on us...after all, we can say the exact same thing about southerners too - they get a little bit of snow, less than an inch and all heck breaks loose: Bad car accidents, school closings, etc. I have heard northerners laugh at southerners for this many times because we are used to a couple feet of snow at one time and are still expected to show up for work. For many of us, we have NEVER experienced a hurricane in our entire lives. Especially since many of us live more than an hour from the coastline. I was looking out my window and saying the same thing too: Oh. My. God. The damage was unbelievable in our area (PA). Just because you all have endured hurricanes every year does not make you an authority on them, or give you the right to laugh at others who experience it for the first time. Sheesh.

          I agree with you Ray..these events are a horrible experience...Well said, would like to see some of these folks in feet of snow, cold and shovel at the same time. Hope you and your family are safe.

      That blue car is fine. Probably just a dent in the back. The lighter colored car though...

      All that guy could say about his neighbor's house on fire was "...nothing I can do about that." He wins the prize for utter lack of sympathy. How about calling "911" to report it. NOT the kind of neighbors I would want.
        • 2 Years Ago
        @suannesb
        Actually it is too late to do anything because you are told to leave before the storm. The fire dept wont be able to respond very quickly maybe not at all. Never stand at the windows because the wind can blow the glass in and or a tree can fall through and really do lots of harm to you. I live in Houston, I've been through some storms and some pretty bad ones.

          How do you know they were told to leave?

        1. It was not a house but a tree that was blown over. The fire is surrounded by leaves and in the middle of the street. 2, Not everybody has a cell phone so when the power went out so did the phone. If you will notice when the tree across the street falls it pulls on a power pole and the porch lights of the houses across the street go out whic means a power line was severed and that was probably the one that ignited the tree in the middle of the street

      oh my God! Thanks God for all the Sandy and all the sufferings!

      I hope the neighbors in the house that caught fire were evacuated and these clowns knew it. I wouldn't be standing there laughing and saying "I can't do anything about that" if I thought people in there were going to burn to death.

        Instead of standing there cussing like a little boy...should have using the damn phone to punch in 9-1-1...if the cell towers were working, that is.

        I can't believe they said that on video. I happened to be in that same situation. My power went off at 10:30pm as the storm was raging. I went out on my deck to see if all the neighborhood was out as well. As soon as I open the door I smelled the smoke and heard someone screaming. My neighbor building was on fire. I ran out in the storm to see if I could help. There is no way I would say "nothing i can do about that". The tenants in the building banded together and put the fire out. Thank god, no one was hurt.

      Senseless, selfish idiots. House burning and you say there is nothing you can do about it. Here is an idea...Call 911.

        • 2 Years Ago
        @Jennifer
        That is not a house burning unless it was pulled into the middle of the street. It is a tree that fell and pulled power lines down with it.
        • 2 Years Ago
        @Jennifer
        Call 911 when there is probably over 100 other calls going on at the time. The cops just can't just show up to every house thats getting destroyed. Though I do agree they should have helped them.
          nebro
          • 2 Years Ago
          It was a tree knocking down power lines. Calling 911 is exactly what you do. It's a priority call. Other than that, there was nothing else they could do to help until the winds died down.
