* BellisariosMaxim: Emmerich has stated that the film was never intended to be scientifically accurate - the credits claim it was based on the book ''The Coming Global Superstorm'', by [[CoastToCoastAM Art Bell]] and [[TheGreys Whitney Striber]].

* MemeticMutation: Some people had the balls to claim a [[https://coedbc.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/ea-statue-main-tweet.jpg?quality=88 screenshot]] of the flood hitting New York City was an actual picture of what was going on during Hurricane Sandy, leading some people who'd never seen the movie to believe it was real.

* WhatAnIdiot: Many people over the course of the film. Most notably the Vice President, who dismisses Jack's advice they begin evacuating people, '''after''' he witnessed Los Angeles get destroyed by tornados.

** Also, the newscast about Americans crossing the border into Mexico--illegally. [[{{Irony}} Yeah.]]


Added DiffLines:

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: The astronaut at the end (after the disaster has destroyed civilization in the northern hemisphere and claimed countless lives) who happily declares that he's never seen the sky so clean. Apparently this is supposed to be the ending's "uplifting" note. ''Hoo'', boy...!

** Tornadoes touched down briefly in Southern California in January 2010.



** Seeing Manhattan flooded and battered by gale-force winds seems a lot grimmer to anyone who was in NYC for Superstorm Sandy.

* HarsherInHindsight:
** Seeing Manhattan flooded In an eerie real-life coincidence to the film, a reporter covering tornadoes in LA was hit and battered killed by gale-force winds a flying billboard. A year later, Anderson Cooper was ''almost decapitated'' by a flying sign while covering Hurricane Dennis.
** Another eerie real-life coincidence was that [[http://www.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/americas/08/07/greenland.ice.island/index.html a giant ice shelf broke off of Antarctica that's three times the size of Manhattan.]] Suddenly, "It's the size of Rhode Island!"
seems a lot grimmer to anyone who was in NYC for Superstorm Sandy.less silly.


Added DiffLines:

** And the film's second act; consisting of New York City being flooded by tidal waves has become rather chilling with Hurricane Sandy rolling through the area and causing floods for real.
