Hurricane Sandy

The image shown above shows snow from Hurricane Sandy in West Virginia. Rain from the hurricane becaem snow over the Appalachian Mountians, leading to blizzard conditions over certain areas, which is strange for a hurricane. 1-3 feet of snowfall was observed.

The image above shows flooding in Marblehead, Massachusetts on October 29, 2012. Schools were closed, and many businesses also closed.

Hurricane Sandy was said to have been possibly linked to global warming. Hurricanes usually weaken as they head toward the Atlantic, but Hurricane Sandy didn't, and it kept on moving until it reached to close to the North Pole. To the right shows an example of the damage inflicted by Sandy in Long Beach Island, NY.

Hurricane Sandy, a hurricane that, at it's peak, reached to a Category 3, recently hit areas of Central and North America, near the coast of the Atlantic. Beginning as a tropical storm near Jamaica, it gradually strengthed as it moved toward the USA. It gradually weakened, degenerating into a remnant trough on October 31.
