MSM is doing the same usual "global warming doom!" hysteria to freak out the populace they do every one of these storms.
Currently this thing has dropped to a category 1 and the center hasn't even made landfall.
News is reporting on power outages - but fails to mention it's because they did a controlled shutdown of the two nuclear reactors along the coast, just to be safe. The storm didn't actually take anything out.
Then they are saying that even though it's category 1 it's basically still a category 4 and CNN just said "just because the wind has decreased a couple miles per hour doesn't mean it isn't as strong as it was when it was category 4".
Uh, no, that's exactly what it means.
Also, category 4 means 155 mph wind.
Category 1 means 74 mph wind.
That's not "a couple miles per hour" decrease that CNN is claiming.
