CENTER OF SANDY MAKES LANDFALL NEAR ATLANTIC CITY

The center of Post-tropical Storm SANDY passed inland between Cape May and Atlantic City Monday evening. The storm caused a record high storm surge, especially along the northern Jersey shore, the Long Island Sound and New York Harbor. The surge reached a record height of 13 feet at the Battery in Lower Manhattan.

    Why hasn’t the NHC issued hurricane warnings? I see t.s. warnings for NC and Bermuda, but VA, DC, MD, DE, NJ etc do not have hurricane warnings… I’m wondering why this is?

      Jay, This is a unique case of a hurricane transforming into a non-tropical storm before reaching the U.S. coast north of North Carolina. The National Weather Service has issued storm warnings, such used for winter storms, for those areas being affected by this post-tropical storm SANDY.
