3 Sandy Movies And 2 Satellite Views

October 31st, 2012 at 11:35 am by under Uncategorized, Weather

Here’s a silent time-lapse movie of lower Manhattan from Sunday at 1:00 PM through Tuesday at 2:30 PM. Note the new World Trade Center toward the right and the Brooklyn Bridge running from center screen to left. Movie runs about 3 minutes.

PLEASE NOTE that there is an expletive as this event happens (about 40 seconds in). This movie is the collapse of the front facade of an apartment building in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City.

PLEASE NOTE that there is an expletive toward the beginning of the following video. A group of teenagers were watching the approach of the storm in a residential neighborhood when trees begin to fall…and a fire starts due to a downed power line.

Finally, a couple of satellite pictures; they are both rather large. And rather than present them in a squeezed-down format, I’ve uploaded them to an image-sharing site.

This first one appears to be from Saturday night. Florida is on the lower-left portion of the picture and you can follow the East Coast northward from there. The lights of Hampton Roads appear to have been obscured by the thicker, taller clouds (& rain) that we were experiencing at that time.

And this last picture is from yesterday. It shows the enormous reach of Sandy…all the way up to Greenland, then southeastward to the British Isles.
