Another post-season analysis change: Hurricane Sandy has now been upgraded to a Category 3 hurricane (only the 2nd major hurricane of the year), with max sustained winds at 115 mph around landfall near Cuba. Damage reported on the Wikipedia page is also up to over 70 billion dollars in the US alone.

The post-storm analysis is worth reading; it's really detailed and also goes into the controversy of the lack of hurricane warnings, along with proposals of changing the warning system to prevent what happened with Sandy from happening again, where hurricane warnings weren't issued due to small meteorological differences that officially didn't make it a hurricane at the exact time of landfall.

Sandy went into the history books to join the likes of Katrina.

However, I do not think any other Atlantic hurricane is anywhere close to Sandy´s fascination meteorology and everything that goes along with it.



The destruction aside, I´m actually really looking forward to this year´s Atlantic tropical cyclone season.

I just love those beauties.

Sandy was truly an amazing storm to watch develop and watching it take its historic path... Too bad we can't appreciate the fascination that Mother Nature sends us without the chance of lives being ruined.,.

Honestly I hope to see the beauty of a cat 5 fish storm... But it is human nature for people to want a cat 5 to make landfall somewhere where you don't live just like the ancient Romans liked watching slaves get eaten in arenas... And why wwe and UFC fighting is popular...

I agree; Katrina was undoubtedly a devastating hurricane that lives on in the history books, but Sandy was by far more meteorologically fascinating to watch unfold - there haven't been many cases in recorded history when a hurricane was captured in a similar fashion and forced NW, intensifying as it approached landfall in the Northeast which by itself is a rarity, producing a blizzard, a flooding rainstorm, and an extreme windstorm at the same time. The NWS report actually upgraded Sandy to a category 2 storm when it intensified on 10/29 hours before landfall. Unfortunately such a storm doesn't come without extreme devastation and loss of life...

meh... katrina went from a category 3 storm (already stronger than sandy was along the east coast) to a near-record setting category 5 in just 9 hours. i think people forget some of the anomalies as time passes. or maybe the fact that wilma just a short time later shattered all those records make people forget.

to me, the most incredible thing about sandy was that parts of virginia were simultaneously under hurricane warnings and blizzard warnings at the same time. i sure can't remember another time when a state had a hurricane warning and blizzard warning posted at the same time.

It's much more common for tropical cyclones to deepen that fast than tropical cyclones get shot to the NW after being far away from the Mid Atlantic and Northeast coasts. Such extreme path, does not seem to have happened before since records have been kept.

There are or there is even model guidance for RI, rapid intensification.

But at any rate your thoughts and opinion are as valid as any other.

I agree. I was driving around my area today are remembering how many trees have been lost the last few years between the 2010 nor Easter, Irene and of ourse sandy. Plus the beating the beaches took from sandy was unlike anything I've seen in my 29 years in the area.
