Yellow Alert _East Coast from South Carolina to Maine_Perfect Storm is Brewing!


Although Hurricane Sandy is being reported in MSM, the OTHER facts have just started to surface.  Do you remember the George Cloony movie, “The Perfect Storm”?, well it looks like this is going to happen right now in real time.  There is a narrow, but intense system moving in an east northeast direction, currently in the midwest, there is a system moving south southwest direction from Newfoundland, and Hurricane Sandy moving north northwest.  Here is the graphic as of around 6 PM EDT.

This picture kinda says it all.  There is a substantial likelihood (+90%)these storms will merge. This could mean hurricane force winds over a very significant area for a long period of time.  Wind damage is not only related to the force of the wind, but also the duration an area is exposed to damaging winds.  Therefore damage impacts increase with time and in the face of slowly diminishing winds.

The “convergence zone” is the real concern here as we watch the events unfold.  It appears that the area of concern include NYC and Boston.  The impacts however are going to be significant from Charleston north and significantly inland over Pennsylvania and upstate NY.

Make sure if you are those areas, be prepared for significant and prolonged power outages and significant flooding given especially along the eastern seaboard could be 6-10″ in 24-36 hours. In Western Pennsylvania and Western NY, there could be significant heavy wet snow falls with all the impacts to power that go along with those conditions.

We will post more as warranted.
