I think it was pretty impressive how accurate the predictions for Superstorm Sandy were up to a week ahead. The hurricane made the left hand turn from the Atlantic into New Jersey just as predicted. I don’t think the storm could have been hyped any more than it was. The east coast was completely devastated but at least we did have time to prepare. The weather models have gotten much better from even ten years ago. The storm also shows just how vulnerable the east coast is to a 14 foot storm surge. I can’t imagine what a 20 foot surge would do to New York.
