I suppose their efforts didn't work out, since hurricane Sandy devastated the east coast and outlying islands. Simulations for the storm had waves much lower than the actual result. Predicting weather is a such a complex model, that until we have computing power at the quantum computer level, we may never get a handle on it. Perhaps weather control is the way to go? (a fringe science clouded in conspiracy theories to the point of making the idea ludicrous.)

For the time being, reinforcing tried and true sandbanking and diversion techniques should be explored.
