Well having obsessively watched Katrina, Rita, and Ike...I can tell you have never ever ever seen an eye like that. That's massive and extremely well-defined. I'm glad I'm half a continent away from it and I'm praying for those who aren't.

Thanks for putting the pictures up Valhall,it really puts it into perspective.

I`ve been reading a few threads here earlier with quite a few people saying its nothing to be really concerned about and the media is just hyping it up etc

Then I watched our news here in Australia,where they said the combination of the Arctic air pushing east and the jet stream running up the coast north could turn this cell into the perfect storm.

Here`s hoping this thing fizzles for the best out come.

I'm waiting on the satellite loop to update to the 10:15 UTC (5:15 ET) image. I want to see what it looks like then. If it looks the same or bigger I think we can skip from triple holy crap to a hands down holy #.

We should have a contest, see which poster in the hurricane zone lasts the longest.

We are still here .. we still have power (as of 6:45 am) and have had a steady rain for over 12 hours. Honestly, at this point, the WORST of it in this area just west of us and south west ... Around Baltimore and DC. They are getting hammered by the rain. It's been 'training' there for 12 hours. Washington DC will flood ... maybe it'll wash away some of the dirt .....

nice to see you guys survived. Must of been scary experience. The last time i had a power outage about 6 week ago, lost all power a;; night and went out side and sat under the moon and it was freezing and i got a cold.

Well, I'm going straight to Holy MoF. While it is slightly less defined due to the strange little protuberance on the east side...it's even bigger. I've included the 4:45 first for comparison. As Delaware governor Malloy stated yesterday..."The last time we saw anything like this was never..."

OMG I just heard on TWC that there are cruise ships that are taking to sea right now WITH passengers!!!


I was watching when Jim Cantore said that. It's a Norwegian ship. I can't believe they went out in the storm like that. Those people are going to be SICK SICK SICK all over the place with those 30 foot waves and the up and down and up and down ...


Other note - the 'eye' is supposed to go right over us here in Wilmington/Philly ... but the news just keeps talking about damage that can happen in NYC. I'm wondering why they are ignoring the 'eye' going into Philly? I understand the worst part of the storm is to the North or East of the eye ... but still ... It's odd to me ....

Anyways, I've never been in an 'EYE' before. Too bad it'll be dark when it goes over. Daylight would have been interesting. I'm told that the eye is really pretty ...

I've been think about you wondering how everything is.

I'm in East TN and feeling the effects here, so I can not imagine what the coast is going thru.

Prayers to you all and check in occasionally if you can!

It's only getting started. The storm hasn't even made landfall yet let alone tracked over us.
We will still be 'in it' until late Tuesday. This is a long term event with the worst yet to come.
The longer the power is on .. the better. The sump pump has to keep going so the
basement doesn't flood AND I need the fridge on for my special food (I have autoimmune
and am on a AI diet). Lots of people need electricity because their meds are refridgerated.

I hope the power stays on.

Last I saw, you guys were supposed to get some snow. Around bristol for sure ....
Up to two feet in N. Virginia and W. Virginia.

Here ... this is the coldest dang hurricane I've ever been in. It's raw and cold and more
like a winter storm than a hurricane. But it's not cold enough for snow. Can you imagine
if it was ALL snow??? We are in the 6-12 inches of rain forecast. One inch of rain can
equal 8 inches of snow .....

That's seriously a freaky thought!

OH geeez,is it too late to stock ice in coolers/eskys for the meds?

Or are the shops pretty much run out of essentials?

To put it in perspective, here's the eye transposed over Delaware and Maryland. It consumes Delaware and most of Maryland.

Not good...explains the definition and growth of the eye though.

It's been a state of emergency for 24 hours. Everything is closed. Even the overhead signs on the highways were taken down. We just have to sit and wait for the next 48 hours like everyone else until it passes over.

We have a lot of rain here but I'm in awe of the rain falling just 1/2 hour west of us and all around Baltimore and DC .... it's like someone is flushing a toilet and is going to give DC a 'swirly' or something. It's just training and training ... has been for a good 12 hours at least ... Either HAARP or something metaphysical .... or it's a really strange coincidence that it's sitting on DC like that.

Yeah, that is another component to this storm I hope inlanders are paying attention to. I have family that lives up above Gatlinburg and they are predicting 15 inches of snow for that area. The size of this thing is mind boggling!

Regarding that cruise ship. CNN has posted video from a Disney Cruise that went thru this storm on the 26th.


CNN PRODUCER NOTE tneyedoc2020 and his wife attended a seven day Disney Cruise. What initially started out as a relaxing trip, transformed into a torrential night on October 26 as the ship and its passengers endured rough waters created by Hurricane Sandy as it sailed past Miami, Florida. He says the video of the rocking cruise ship does not do justice to what they experienced that night.

'There was a moment in the night where they ship tilted so far to the right that the furniture moved across our room. If you think about how far a thirteenth story ship has to tilt for furniture to move, it says a lot,' he said. He says the captain of the ship and its crew members were apologetic for the rough waters the ship went through.

'The captain came on the intercom and said that the weather was far worse than what was predicted in that area, and he told us to stay in our cabins to be safe,' he said. He said that night, which was the sixth day on the Disney Cruise, was a scary experience. 'The ship was rising and dropping into the water pretty dramatically, it was really startling at times,' he said. 'But the crew was doing the best they could, and Disney did give us a 25% discount on our next cruise.'
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer

ireport.cnn.com

I know these ships are built to handle rough seas, but my concern is the part: "the weather was far worse than what was predicted in that area".

I just hope the one that left New York yesterday fairs well.

Which means the eye is right about 115 miles across. The eye! just the eye.

Last night the WC folks were discussing the possibility of this rising intensity as sandy hit the gulf stream waters IIRC..

They were also noticing blip in the radar, that hinted that the eye was reforming.. from your pics, it's evident that both are happening..

Recorded high wind gusts of 40+ from RI to NC..

last storm core winds were rated at 85mph up about 15mph from last night..

Landfall still not forecasted til tonight..

In researching this it appears from reports referenced on wiki that the average eye size is 40 miles across. In the southern hemisphere they have found them 100 to 200+. I haven't found a precedence yet for anything this big in the northern hemisphere.
