(I'll repeat/expand my last post from the prior thread just to make sure I get the question answered):

"You sure about this? Storm Surge COULD reach 14 feet if this were a class 4 storm."

Believe it. Here's why:

1. Angle of arrival is 90 degrees to the coastline. Very unusual' worst-case scenario (multiple hours of "pushing water" to shore).

2. VERY large storm. Lots of energy to push over a much wider-than-normal swath.
3. Certain areas much more susceptible to flooding that aren't even near the center of circulation due to geography - NYC in particular - due to "funnel" effect of water being driven from a wide bay into a narrow feeder.

Also note this new tweet:

(Dr.) Ryan Maue Ryan Maue ‏[meteorologist PhD] @RyanMaue Largest waves still well offshore, will lag landfall -- tonight's surge looks dire. 45 foot wave/swell east of center pic.twitter.com/pS78EaUA

My elderly parents are in the hurricane strike zone (southern Nassau County LI). To compound things, my father had a small stroke this AM and is now in the hospital 2 miles closer to the shore.

Prayers would be appreciated, if you are so inclined.

What a blow .. Obama and his Sandy press conference .. re: You better do what you’re told or uhhh.. you’re on your own.

Thanks to Sandy for giving the race crowd a pass yesterday.

Thanks for the thread, NN.

Godspeed and Best Wishes to all those in the path of Sandy.

Found the source of the new low pressure reading (re: report on prior thread):

Levi Cowan ‏@TropicalTidbits
Recon pass finding lower pressure yet again, down to 937.5mb extrap. That is a 6mb fall in 1 hour 40 minutes. #Sandy
Link to chart here.

This pretty well CONFIRMS the worst fears from the models last week.

Our local weather channel in South Jersey is saying that he believes the storm will be coming in around 6PM. If it does the surge will beat high tide by 2 hours.

New London CT has already had 1 high tide with this storm. Ferry parking lot was flooded. Tonight’s high tide will be worse.

Lost power for an hour earlier today, but it has come back on. Just windy with a little rain in inland CT. I think we’ll be ok, but the shore is going to be hammered.

Somebody needs to make a graphic of Miss Liberty ducking to get away from the storm. I recall an old animated cartoon, or 3 Stooges/Abbot & Costello movie featuring a scene like that.

I live in NJ, on a cliff above Hoboken. So far not a lot of rain, though the wind makes the walking outside unpleasant.

When the rain comes hard, Hoboken will flood. It always does.

A friend posted a picture from Atlantic City in Instagram that others picked up and have posted on Facebook (went to high school with me in KS of all places). Looks like most of the area is already under water.

Checking in from southern MD. Just rain/wind for now. Kids are out of school today and they’ve already called off school tomorrow. Nearby NAS Pax River is currently on “Installations and tenant commands on mission essential personnel only” status.

From the local television stations here in South Jersey coverage,it doesn't look like much of the Boardwalk is left.

One video showed planks of wood from it floating down the streets.

I will pray.

I was just in the hospital for a couple weeks myself with a MRSA infection and it occurred to me what the consequences would be if the power went out.

I will be praying for him and all those who are hospitalized.

Isn't just FR. NWS sites were timing out while I was trying to gather links for this thread. Finally gave up adding additional local weather links.
