Hurricane #Sandy Making Landfall – 10/29/12

Currently – Winds: 90 mph | Pressure 940 mb | Location: 38.8N 74.4W (30 miles East-southeast of Cape May New Jersey and 40 miles South of Atlantic City New Jersey) | Moving Northwest at 28 mph. Tropical storm force winds extend out 485 miles and Hurricane force winds out 175 miles from the center.

Sandy is still off shore at this time. She is continuing to head to the north-northwest at 28 mph. Sandy is headed for Cape May New Jersey and the Delaware Bay area. Reminder: When we talk about landfall, we are speaking of the center of the storm. Sandy is large and as many of you know, her winds and rains have been felt much of the day. So the center is not that important.
