HAARP 9.1 Magnitude Alert - "Perfect Storm" to Potentially Hit New York
Posted 26 October 2012 - 03:15 PM
It was a category 1 storm and while most people in the Carolinas are ready/prepared for storms like this people in the northeast, especially NYC, certainly are not. Irene did severe damage up there. I have a college friend from Vermont and she said Irene f'd a lot of stuff up.

I'm just going to say the obvious.
Doesn't a hurricane need warm water?
The water is not warm enough for the storm to strengthen, but it is warmer than it normally it this time of year, so it will not weaken as much as it would in a normal year.
I know this makes me sound like a heart-less asshole, but I'm actually pretty excited to see what happens when a hurricane meets air cold enough to produce snow.
I obviously don't want to see people lose their lives, but from a scientific point of view, I find this storm intriguing.

yea, this could be bad.

never mind... potential for 500 year precipitation mark?
yea, this could be bad.
all depends on the inches/hr
It could be a million year statistical event, but if it falls over the course of 3 weeks...

All kidding aside, this could be bad.

Hurricane Sandy is moving slowly toward the north-northeast and is expected to continue its current path parallel to the Carolinas over the weekend, forecasters say. At some point, it is expected to become what's known as an extratropical storm. Unlike a tropical system like a hurricane, which gets its power from warm ocean waters, extratropical systems are driven by temperature contrasts in the atmosphere. At some point, probably Monday, Sandy will begin to turn back toward the coast and eventually make landfall over Delaware or New Jersey.
Although Sandy is currently a hurricane, it's important not to focus too much on its official category or its precise path. It's a massive system that will affect a huge swath of the eastern U.S., regardless of exactly where it hits or its precise wind speed. For example, tropical storm-force winds can be felt 450 miles away from the storm's center, according to the National Hurricane Center. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has personnel and supplies spread as far west as the Ohio River Valley, said Craig Fugate, the agency's director.
