Wow, gotta love CNN's hyping of a storm that's barely strong enough to be classified as a hurricane.

People in Florida must just be shaking their heads at people in New York.


Ha this one will be worse than most of Floridas hurricanes because it is converging with 2 other storm fronts as well as high tides (full moon).

Nope. Colder waters and less time to grow means it won't be that bad.

They might have a bit of flooding, but it's not going to be anything like they're hyping it up to be.

My brother just recently moved to Sparta, New Jersey. Although right now he is back at his other house in New Hampshire and doesn't have to go back until the storm passes.

I hope everyone is safe and sound from the storm... Except Gary Bettman, Sandy can blow him off for all I care. Perhaps take his minion Bill Daly as well so there is an actual successor rather than a clone of Bettman.

The storm is undergoing extratropical transition, which is to say it is losing its characteristic as a tropical storm and becoming a midlatitude storm. A consequence of that is that the storm becomes much bigger (1000's of km vs 100's of km), and while winds are not as high as a regular hurricane, the damaging high winds cover a much much larger area, and a particular location will experience very strong winds for much longer periods of time compared to a regular hurricane.

Another important difference is that an extratropical storm does not require warm ocean water to sustain itself, so it doesn't necessarily weaken rapidly as hurricanes would. It can in fact strengthen as it extras energy from the north-south contrast in temperature.

Thirdly as the warm moist tropical airmass meets the cold air mass from the north, it can produce an immense amount of rain and snow over a very wide area, much more than what you would normally see in a regular winter storm.

Bottomline is, you can't directly compare this to a regular hurricane. It is much more intensive then storm the area will normally see. Mid-latitude storms with centre pressure of 970mbar kill people and cause billions in damages (such as the halloween noreaster last year). Sandy was forecasted to hit with sub 950mbar pressure. It is currently sitting at 947mbar.

Im glued to CNN right now pretty crazy stuff... A tower crane snapped in half 90 stories up barley hanging on and apparently 3 feet of water in the stock exchange floor. I can only imagine all the electronics they have in there fryed.

I think the latest projections now are the storm in so longer a tropical one and is going to glid across the mid west instead of spin up into Ontario . It might even go up into Sask and Alberta or go all the way to California. Who knows.

High tide + storm surge = the ocean is currently ~14 feet higher than normal right now. The stock exchange, subway, and several streets close to the water all all submerged.

That report is false. It has been confirmed that the NYSE is not flooded.

Water is entering New York's subway system from the East River, but pumps are working. #Sandy. http://on.cnn.com/Pg1gMd
