Past IEM Features tagged: sandy
Hurricane / Hybrid storm Sandy came ashore Monday evening and brought lots of wind, rain, and storm surge along with it. The featured map is a simple analysis of peak wind speeds reported on Monday. The big caveat with maps like this during big storms is that stations are often knocked offline during the highest impact weather and will miss reporting the highest wind speeds. The highest reported wind speeds were in the 60 to 100 mph range for most of the eastern coast from Virginia to Maine.
