Was going to mention. Here in Orange County Florida they are going to have a Hurricane Prep Expo on June 1st 2013. Here is the link for the info.
Orange County, FL Hurricane Expo
Given Sandy's intensity, scope, overall effects, explosive development and track, as well as being the second hurricane to make landfall in New Jersey in consecutive seasons (and in almost the same spot as Hurricane Irene!),it is unique in Mid-Atlantic hurricane annals for at least the past 400 years. I guess I'll have to add a new section for Sandy when I revise my book, Hurricanes and the Middle Atlantic States.
Incidentally, I recorded a storm peak gust of 65 mph at my Alexandria, VA, home and 6.25 inches rainfall as of noon on Tuesday.
6 O'clock and all is well. The wind has increased to a sustained speed of 40+ mph, had trouble standing by the wall. Now have low tide, next high tide, 12 midnight.
Rain has stopped as has the wind--Highest wind so far has been 17mph--Everyone be safe--------------------
High tide has come and gone with the waves splashing over the sea wall. The wind has picked up and got this photo, the highest I saw today.
It's 10 am and my handheld wind meter's battery died. Still, we're back in business. Water is splashing over the sea wall and the highest reading was in excess of 31 mph.
High tide is at 11.30 am at 10.4 ft. With the surge, no idea where it will go. cheers
It's 11.00pm just about 20 minutes before high tide and the waves are close to the top of the granite wall but not yet to the top of the concrete. Saw winds in excess of 25 mph with driving rain.
I have a friend that has made the illadvised decision to ride out Sandy in their Long Island home. Am allready hearing reports from them that they are having problems with storm surge!
