I recognized that NYC was the center of very seriously sinful movements in the US, but I wondered how God would warn it. It's built on bedrock, and any massive catastrophe would harm too many people, in the hundreds of thousands.

Then there was 9/11 (3000 people), and Sandy. These were warnings. If we don't repent, larger disasters could occur.

Is there any connection between the novel and Robert Wise's 1959 heist flick with the same title which also takes place in NYC (and Hudson, NY)?
