...As you all know, it's a lot more complicated than a simple 'Hurricane Sandy'...at least for the US East Coast. Sandy, now a strong and dangerous category 2 hurricane, is pounding The Bahamas with damaging winds and an elevated storm surge threat. Cuba got the brunt with major damage after getting struck by Sandy overnight--which was nearly a major hurricane at the time of landfall. US East Coast, from North Carolina to Maine, should keep progress as odds are increasing that high winds, coastal flooding and flooding rainfall may be the results of Sandy interacting with a trough of low pressure by this weekend into early next week. Florida East Coast will also feel impacts--winds near TS force and minor coastal flooding are possibilities along the state's Atlantic Coastline the next 24 hours. Will keep you updated with this significant hurricane 'Sandy' and potentially historical weather event that may be brewing for the US East Coast in the not-so-far future.
