Sandy has officially bumped the historic record-holder 1938 hurricane to number TWO in the lowest pressure of a hurricane north of Hatteras.

It is now THE lowest pressure system in recorded history for this area.

That really low pressure eye is supposed to go right over us at 2 AM.
I'm wondering what low pressure will do to the body ...
Especially my autoimmune ridden body. Maybe nothing. Maybe something.
I guess we'll find out.

Meanwhile, Atlantic City's public safety director says most of the city is under water. Willie Glass says the city is basically flooded and it looks like the damage will be worse than the storm of 1962. Fire officials in Pleasantville report at least two rescues from homes surrounded by water and two more rescues are under way.

Garden State Parkway is also shut down in two locations down by Atlantic City due to flooding. They warn to expect more of it will also be closed as the storm approaches.

Norfolk is flooding.

United Illuminating is warning its customers that about 35,500 of them will lose power about noon when a power station gets flooded out.

Another thing to keep an eye on are the inlet bays, when they start receding it is only giving more strenght to what the surge will become at hightide after nightfall. The ocean literally sucks water energy from the inlets and then builds up for the tidal surge.

Saw that and the text is pretty scary as it shows sustained wind speeds at much higher rates than expected for a cat one which we have already said is dangerous info for most ppl who have 'ridden out' much larger events.

I have been in so much pain the past few days, I swear the inside of my bones hurt.

If the power doesn't go out, I am going to sit in a sauna out of desperation.

Just saw that the 3 main power supply chains are reporting upwards of 10k without power now.

Looks like Tx is under the gun now too. From weather channel feed:

Twitter
TWC_Shawn:
#Hail near Goodnight, TX shatters the windshields of 3 of our #TornadoHunt vehicles.

With the size of this monster storm it is hard to tell how far across the US it is going to move.

So much moisture from the south traveling on the hurricane winds meeting with the northern cold front heading down from Canada.

I'm confused here, those tweets are dated April 30th?
Radar shows no significant weather over TX at the moment.

Best of luck to all those 'riding it out' and thanks for all the constant feedback. I'm in South Africa but keeping a close eye on proceedings there.

Right now we are in the middle of a massive lightning storm. The weather has been crazy here for the last few weeks. Constant rain and storms when we're suppose to be having lovely weather.

I inspect buildings for a living and know that tomorrow I will be running about like crazy.

I thought this was an interesting comparison done by BBC News.

From this page:



Hurricane Sandy is huge and its winds could stretch across the eastern third of the US by Monday night, according to the National Hurricane Center. Here's what the storm would look like if its centre were over western Europe:



That is pretty amazing.

I hope that everyone has their insurance paid up because there will be a lot of real estate damaged (if not lost- doesn't look promising for the islands Chincotigue and Assatigue and the other low lying islands.
