TELL US: Sandy, Irene, or Bob? Which Hurricane Was Worse?
Sandy might be retired as a Hurricane name. What about Bob or Irene?
Much of the Northeastern United States slowed down on Monday to watch Hurricane Sandy make its way up the coast toward its eventual landfall on New England.
Throughout the day, residents of the South Shore, Cape Cod and the Islands and elsewhere endured high winds, power outages and in some cases, flooding.
The storm came more than a year after Irene left many Massachusetts communities without power.
And, Hurricane Bob that landed in August 1991 left the Outer Cape without electricity for more than a week.
Which storm do you think was worse – Sandy, Irene or Bob? How did you weather Sandy and the other hurricanes? And, while we're at it, do you think that hurricanes should be called a man's name?
