Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy totaly dwarfs Hurricane Irene of 2011 in intensity (on landfall) and size. Hurricane Sandy was a Category 1 hurricane with 90mph winds on landfall, with a minimum pressure of 940mb. Hurricane Sandy was 900+ miles wide. Sandy's maximum sustained wind was 110mph, right before she made landfall in Cuba.

Hurricane Irene

In comparison, Hurricane Irene was a Category 1 hurricane on landfall with 85mph winds when she made landfall on North Carolina's Outer Banks. Hurricane Irene was 700-775 miles wide. Hurricane Irene had a minimum pressure of 943mb when she reached peak strength of 125mph of the coast of Florida.

These two "Superstorms" both were intense storms that cause billions of U.S. dollars of damage to the North Eastern states. These storms also allow for the U.S to prepare for more "Superstorms" in the future.

Thats all for now!

Try comparing sandy and Irene at similar locations. Like sandy by Cuba and Irene by puerto Rico, rather than sandy at Cuba and Irene at nc. The comparison should be between sandy at nc and Irene at nc he Carib or he ne. So paragraph on irene should not say in comparison irene was whatever at nc sine you are compariong ne strikes. Then also use pictures in your post. Make it a tad longer as well. Also use your memory to remember tips. Finally analyze the storms in some way such that your blog entry is unique. All these tips combined should help you greatly wb12.


Thanks GeorigaStormz for the tips. I really appreciated them.

The damages from Sandy are just beginning to be revealed. I think that as more of the NE regains their power we will hear of much more damage. Part of me looks fwd to seeing pics and vids as the NE begins to come back online and another part of me does not want to see it. Kind of like a kid with their hands over their eyes but peeking, lol. A train wreck I just can not turn away from. Having been through so many hurricanes that I have to look at a list to see how many, my heart truly goes out to everybody affected by this storm.

Thanks for the blog Wundergirl!






I'm also looking foward to hearing about the damage that Sandy caused. However, I do hope that everyone affected by Sandy does stay safe. I've gone through many hurricanes myself,(Floyd was the biggest one I've experienced),so I know the feeling of what can happen with hurricanes and their destructive qualities. Thanks for the comment!

Hopefully this is the last storm of the 2012 Season. And the last time the NE has to go through with a storm with such magnitude.


Me too. I hope the NE doesn't have as bad as a storm as Sandy. Thanks for the comment!
