SANDY’s storm surge could be “life-threatening”: NHC

National Hurricane Center (NHC) has described the storm surge threat from Hurricane SANDY as “life-threatening,” ranking the surge and wave “destruction potential” for the hurricane alone, not including the combined force of the hybrid storm, which it could eventually become,  at 5.8 on a scale of 0 to 6.

  • SANDY could be the largest storm ever to hit the United States, said NHC.
  • The massive storm could affect tens of millions of people hundreds of miles along the Atlantic Coast.
  • Some coastal parts of New York and New Jersey could experience surge and waves of up to 11 feet, judging by Hurricane SANDY’s size, said NHC.
  • New York Mayor has ordered the evacuation of more than 375,000 people in low-lying areas.
  • Some 50,000 people in Delaware and 30,000 in Atlantic City, N.J. have also been evacuated.
  • At least 5,000 flights have been cancelled.
  • Flooding caused by the storm surge is expected to be particularly severe because the storm’s arrival coincides with a full moon, which causes higher tides.
  • Up to 284,000 residential properties valued at $88 billion could sustain damage from storm-surge flooding, according to risk analysts CoreLogic, Reuters reported.
  • The massive storm has already claimed at least 66 lives in the Caribbean.
  • The Disaster President has declared States of Emergency for New York and Massachusetts.
  • States of emergency have also been declared by the governors in Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia and the District of Columbia.
