Let's not forget about the city of New Orleans. I was there for Hurricane's Betsy, Camille and Katrina.

I pray this hurricane season will be a mild one with no loss of lives and homes.

Well, let's point out the obvious. Almost every one of these states is republican yet the congressmen of these states have voted against the funding of the very programs such as FEMA and other disaster relief programs that they will be asking aid from if they are impacted by a disaster. Tell me how this helps and protects the people in their states during an emergency?

Atlantic city was hardly "devastated" by Sandy. Yes, there was damage to low lying homes and older street level buildings but hardly the devastation that you uninformed article implies!

Shouldn't Mississippi and South Carolina be on this list as well??

What happened to Delaware and Maryland - we're between VA and NJ and even during Sandy when the eye looked for a long time as if it would head up the Delaware River the Weather Channel almost never mentioned us by name, it was if we didn't exist. All that was occasionally mentioned was the Delmarva Peninsula which hardly anyone outside of that even knows what it is. Yes, we have smaller beach areas but we're still ocean coastal and vulnerable with live people.

I have seen both Camille & and Katrina devastate the Mississippi gulf coast + a number of storms that were less destructive, you must have some real dim bulbs in your organization to leave Miss. off this list.,
