Predictions from Scientist - How Did Hurricane Sandy Begin

Due to a sharply decline of sea ice quantities in the North Atlantic, scientist suggest that this had something to do with the formation of the hurricane. This is all part of global warming. Unusually dry summer and droughts across the Midwest part of the United States. Fires in Texas and Colorado and other extreme weather related disasters in many regions around the world. All suggest a change in our environment, which we have contributed to these changes with air pollution, thinning out the ozone layer.

What Makes Hurricane Sandy Different - Not a Typical Tropical Storm

Hurricanes drift northward as they enter the Atlantic. Winds that travel from west to east normally push the storm eastward out to sea. However, with the case with Hurricane Sandy, a high-pressured cold front over the East Coast slammed into this powerful storm. When they collided, the storm jogged westward as it traveled to the north. The air moved clockwise, giving the atmosphere a different steering pattern.

Sandy is the largest storm to hit the East Coast since 1988. This is when the government satellite technology became into effect.

With the storms slow progress and enormous 940 miles wide size, havoc to approximately two-thirds of the East Coast from Virginia to Massachusetts and up into Canada.

Wind Speeds of Hurricane Sandy hit Virginia Beach at 90 mph and New York at 80 mph, downgrading it to Superstorm Sandy or Frankenstorm (best name for Halloween). As of Oct. 30, 2012, twenty-four states been affected with Sandy storm and eight million people out of power.

Hurricane Sandy has brought in flooding, snowstorms, power outages, 100 homes burnt down in New York. The first time the New York Stock Exchange has closed down for two days since the 1880s.

The subways in New York are closed with debris and water that has flooded the tracks. It will take at least a week to pump all the water out and clean up the mess.
