Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy is a ridiculously huge storm affecting practically the entire east coast. Satellite images kind of do it justice but even more so, here's a comparison image with Hurricane Irene of last year (the fifth costliest hurricane in United States history). Here are some numerical comparisons with Irene and Katrina.


Here's the latest from the National Hurricane Center on Hurricane Sandy.

The New York Times has an interactive map with reports for zip code.

Google has a pretty amazing crisis map.

I've previously mentioned wind map, it should have some interesting images today.

For the New England area, there's the NStar Outage Map. Also, here's a map of storm shelters.

@alertnewengland tweeted this photo.


I have to agree that it's remarkably inspiring, but also a bit pointless and dangerous. It turns out this photo was from September but yes, the tomb is guarded 24/7 through all forms of weather. Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Remains Guarded Through Hurricane Sandy
