This is an open topic.

Please feel free to share both text and images of this Atlantic Ocean storm named Sandy.

As most of the eastern United States residents know there is a storm in the western Atlantic Ocean named Hurricane Sandy (As of the date of this post, Sandy is still classified as a category 1 hurricane.

Although Sandy may soon become a tropical storm or tropical depression, it is still capable of causing some type of damage some where along the eastern United States coast line.

Please feel free to share what you can with the rest of us.

Thanks in advance.

Bruce.

I looked for and was able to view some beach cams earlier...Virginia Beach, etc.
I suspect now the servers for those cams are all over taxed because I am having trouble now
pulling them up. That's to be expected...its happened before.

The scariest warning I've seen is that of the chance of NYC's subways being flooded. I understand they
are being shut down later today. If they do flood, the prediction I read said the transit system could be down
for 1 to 2 months. Then there is BC's servers....and Grinler to be concerned about....a little...:)

Maintainig 40 mph winds with 60 - 70 mph gusts. Eains is still falling.. We had land fall at about 6pm.
The eye should pass by soon and then the tail wrap around as it heads in to central Jersey and then turns north.

Lights keep flickering but are still on.

At my house here in Norwich Connecticut, the winds howled on and off from about 12:00 PM until 6:30 PM.

The worst was around 5:30 PM. We had very little rain and I spent most of my time doing live videos with my cell phone.

We were fortunate not to loose power through out the entire storm, although there was a 30 minute period I went through having my computer booted transfering 3 GB of videos from my phone that I was worried the power would go out during that transfer. However that never happened.

I am one of the fortunate ones to live in a town that has its own utility company and eletrical restoration is often quite quick for us.

Bruce.

In Storrs, CT the wind knocked down a few trees, in fact a small one fell on my house but there was no damage. The worst part was losing power for 25 hours - and I was lucky I got power back so soon.
