Yes, though they are sandbagging entrances RT @matthewr318: @wunderground I heard the subway system in nyc could flood, is that true?
RT @AndreaButera: List of states w/ states of emergency b/c of #Sandy: MA, MD, VA, NY, NJ, CT, PA & 40 counties in NC. #hurricane
Florida surfers enjoy big waves, courtesy of Hurricane Sandy:
#NYC surge above tide: 1-1.5' above Sunday night; 2-4' Monday morning; potential for 4-8' Monday night into Tuesday morn. #sandy
#NYC wind: gusts up to 70 mph possible, strongest winds are expected Monday afternoon and night. #sandy
#Jersey surge: 3-5 foot tidal surge, 15-20 foot waves; flooding could last 3-5 hours during high tides.
#Jersey wind: 35-45 mph with gusts to 65 mph on Monday and Tuesday, strongest gusts expected on Monday.
#DC, #Baltimore inland flooding: 3-5 inches of rain could cause creeks and steams to rise quickly out of their banks
NHC will not be issuing TS/Hurricane advisories, instead, local offices will handle high wind, flood advisories
Why? Because Sandy is expected to not be tropical at some point. Would be confusing if hurricane warnings disappear.
