The Empire State, hurricane-proof?



"If you were Allstate," asks Martin Grace, "who would you rely upon for your weather advice?" The chief forecaster of the AccuWeather.com Hurricane Center, who's warning that the "Northeast is staring down the barrel of a gun" and that its coast is "long overdue for a major hurricane"? Or Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), who declares such concerns "bogus" and is flaying the prominent insurer for its refusal to underwrite such coverage in any quantities New Yorkers happen to demand?
