Friendly neighborhood meteorologist in training here. Hurricane Sandy hasn't made landfall yet but it's impacts are probably being felt because the storm is freaking huge. I think there's sustained tropical force winds in New Jersey. There's no warnings on it for areas like NY, NJ, PA but I suspect it's because they think it's going to become extratropical (the stuff that normally drives the weather in the mid-latitudes).

@Lene The surface observations say it's raining with a little blustry winds, about 25 knots (28 mph). That will likely increase as the day goes along though.

I know this storm has been overhyped to death because lolmedia but PLEASE everyone in the east coast stay safe and be careful. If you live by water, the storm surge is supposed to be extremely dangerous. Flooding is possible/probable too, and very strong winds.

I live in Philadelphia, which is maybe south of Levittown and so far there's just been the large gusts of wind and some rain.

Sandy isn't expected to hit the tri-state area until this evening so yea..

@PKShota; Suffolk, NY already has flooding (Bayshore was confirmed as one).. and that was reported around 1am this morning.

As of right now..the wind is hitting about 40MPH near Levittown (there is a predicted 60~90MPH by tonight to tomorrow *shrugs*). with rainfall. Just brace yourself and make sure you have batteries and flashlights/lanterns.. LIPA has notified everybody that there may be a 7~10 day power outage in areas across the island. And in case of an emergency.. NCC is the closest shelter for residents of the surrounding area if you need to leave your housing.

hopefully that gives some insight.

Thankfully in TN the only thing we're getting off of this is really strong winds and the temperature has gone down to the 40s during the day compared to 70s last week.

Everyone stay safe further north though! Don't do anything stupid

Thanks guys. If possible I'd like frequent updates regarding anything major in Levittown, because I fear for the safety of a very dear friend.

But I won't leave my prayers to just one person, I hope everyone else on the east coast be well also.

I'm literally right at the edge of the hurricane and the weather is already ridiculous. And it's going to go downhill from here.

9 days of no power.. I finally got power not too long ago. Tree hit my house.. deeply dented my roof.. siding on the side of my house came off.. broken fences... and incredibly long lines for gas.. people are ruthless when somebody tries to cut the line... I have been cooking on a fire pit and cold showers...

Lots of places got hit really hard... Long Beach, NY. got washed by the high tide. Breezy Point got decimated by fires... 1 house caught fire... winds carried the fires to neighboring houses.. over 111 houses burned to the ground because firemen couldnt get to them due to high flooding.

We were lucky and had almost everything working when we came home (we evacuated since we were zone A) despite being hit pretty hard. Only things that weren't working were the heat and hot water since the boiler parts were ruined. The entire first first floor got flooded and we're still trying to clean everything up over a week later. >: This area is a mess; there's tons of ruined belongings outside and the block itself just looks demolished.

Plus there was yesterday's nor'easter that left a ton of snow on the ground and it was so cold omg. Barely got home, ended up not going to my 4-6PM class (I have class 10-6PM that day) since the weather was just horrible. Almost fell like 10 times and nearly froze.

My friend is still without power, heat, and hot water. Plus there's lots of lights and traffic signs not working around where I live so it's scary to go home from class at night. It really stinks being in NY right now. D:

*is warmed*

I'm glad some people didn't lose power or got it back very quickly.. I don't want people to go through that torture. Some of my co-workers are still without power as well... and due to the delays in the snow, they won't get it till next Tuesday at best. FEMA was putting people up in hotels n other housing.. but they don't have enough to house everybody so I hear. Hotels are booked up the wazoo. Its going to take a long while before things recover at least half of the damages or so.

@Mare; Hopefully your friend gets the power n heat back. Its suppose to be in the 60s this weekend.. so that should help a bit.
