Gizmodo is ‘live’ updating coverage of Hurricane Sandy. Here’s the latest update:
If you had any doubts about the scale of frankenstorm Sandy, check out NASA’s latest global Earth image to see its size compared to the entire planet. We are now updating this post with images, video and warnings from NASA, NOAA and other sources as they arrive.
Update 17:Latest update from the National Hurricane Center says the storm strength has increased. “The center is expected to landfall along or just south of southern New Jersey coast this evening or tonight.”
New York is flooding already and the storm is not in full force yet. This one could really flood the subway system.
According to NOAA, “Sandy is expected to intensify as it interacts with an upper level system moving from the Great Lakes.” The northeast region “may experience a widespread damaging storm, possibly of historic proportions”.
The agency says “Sandy is expected to slam into the New Jersey coast later monday night, bringing heavy rain and damaging winds” to all areas. They warn that you shouldn’t pay attention to the center of the storm, as all areas will have significant impact.
