Hurricane "Sandy" slams..East-Coast US (29.10.12)

Postby Edwardo_Uk » Tuesday, 30 Oct 2012, 03:14

Following days of careful watching and monitoring, this Hurricane has now hit the mainland - quite an unprecedented set-up as two major storm systems collide, bringing with them mayhem in the form of torrential rain, circa 100mph winds, floods, and in places a risk of very-heavy snowfall/blizzards.Not a very nice combination for those in its path! there's no doubting more updates shall reveal more as she pushes further inland..

Here's the current take of this event.

All links below reveal a little more about Hurricane "Sandy", or "Frankenstorm!" take your pick? :shock:
