Hurricane Sandy Passing Over The Bahamas

This impressive photo of Hurricane Sandy over the Bahamas and heading towards the coast of Florida was taken by NASA’s Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument aboard
the Terra satellite on Oct. 25 at 1530 UTC (11:30 a.m. EDT).  You can clearly see the eye of the storm just south of the Bahamas.  According to the Weather Channel, “Confidence is growing that Sandy will be a major threat to portions of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast”.  The impact of this storm, should it hit the mid-Atlantic and, or Northeast states will include heavy rain, damaging winds, flooding and beach erosion.  Sandy is expected to make her impact felt along the east coast beginning on Sunday and continuing through Tuesday as she skirts the coast.  Everyone in the watch area should follow the weather channel and prepare for possible Tropical Storm or Hurricane conditions.  Bottled water and flashlights are essential should Sandy make landfall as predicted.
