Hurricane Sandy 3

Early reports & photos from Cape May County are alarming. Coastal communities are already underwater, & the main storm surge & most dangerous high tide aren't due until evening.  Coastal flooding in north Jersey has occurred at levels associated with the height of noreasterns.  Sandy projected to come ashore south of Atlantic City. My live cam links have been going down one after another, the remaining working sites apparently so busy I can't get on to them with my slow internet service.

More wind than rain here in Elizabeth. The heavy rain is only about 20 miles south now.

Jersey has had many bad storms over the past fifty years, but none with the devastating tidal surges of the March '62 storm. The tide comes in, stays in, & structures that could withstand a fast-moving storm are battered into rubble.

It all looks pretty bad. Prayers for those in Sandy's path. I'm sure you will get a lot of rain and wind where you are. Stay safe and dry.

Very windy here; we don't expect much rain, just high winds.
