From a wire story about Hurricane Isabel:<p>Nothing, however, could compare with the look of the Outer Banks.
``It looks like an atom bomb went off,'' said Reid Harris, a builder who was helping tally the damage in Nags Head. ``The west side of the road is better;
they've all got shingles gone or power lines down, but the houses are still there. Along the beach, every one out of two or three houses is damaged or destroyed. I just can't believe it.'' <p>Mr. Harris hasn't been privy to videos of what happens when an atomic bomb goes off, apparently.

Yeah.<p>I wonder how many people who say something "looks like a war zone" have actually seen a war zone.
