HURRICANE SANDY ADVISORY NUMBER 24
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL182012
500 AM EDT SUN OCT 28 2012

...SANDY EXPECTED TO BRING STRONG WINDS AND A SIGNIFICANT STORM
SURGE TO THE MID-ATLANTIC STATES AND SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND...


[snip]

DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
AT 500 AM EDT...0900 UTC...THE CENTER OF HURRICANE SANDY WAS LOCATED
NEAR LATITUDE 31.9 NORTH...LONGITUDE 73.3 WEST. SANDY IS MOVING
TOWARD THE NORTHEAST NEAR 13 MPH...20 KM/H...AND THIS GENERAL
MOTION IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE THROUGH TODAY. A TURN TOWARD THE
NORTH AND THEN NORTHWEST IS FORECAST ON MONDAY. ON THE FORECAST
TRACK...THE CENTER OF SANDY WILL MOVE PARALLEL TO THE SOUTHEAST
COAST OF THE UNITED STATES TODAY AND TONIGHT...AND APPROACH THE
COAST OF THE MID-ATLANTIC STATES BY MONDAY NIGHT.

MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS ARE NEAR 75 MPH...120 KM/H...WITH HIGHER
GUSTS. WHILE LITTLE CHANGE IN STRENGTH IS FORECAST DURING THE NEXT
COUPLE OF DAYS...SANDY IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN LARGE AND POWERFUL
UNTIL IT CROSSES THE COASTLINE
.

[snip]

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND...TROPICAL STORM CONDITIONS ARE SPREADING ACROSS THE COAST OF
NORTH CAROLINA IN THE TROPICAL STORM WARNING AREA...AND THESE
SHOULD CONTINUE THROUGH TODAY. GALE FORCE WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO
ARRIVE ALONG PORTIONS OF THE MID-ATLANTIC COAST LATER TODAY...AND
REACH LONG ISLAND AND SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND BY MONDAY MORNING. WINDS
TO NEAR HURRICANE FORCE COULD REACH THE MID-ATLANTIC STATES...
INCLUDING LONG ISLAND...BY LATE MONDAY.


STORM SURGE...THE COMBINATION OF AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS STORM SURGE
AND THE TIDE WILL CAUSE NORMALLY DRY AREAS NEAR THE COAST TO BE
FLOODED BY RISING WATERS. THE WATER COULD REACH THE FOLLOWING
DEPTHS ABOVE GROUND IF THE PEAK SURGE OCCURS AT THE TIME OF HIGH
TIDE...


NC SOUTH OF SURF CITY...1 TO 3 FT
NC NORTH OF SURF CITY INCLUDING PAMLICO/ALBEMARLE SNDS...4 TO 6 FT
SE VA AND DELMARVA INCLUDING LOWER CHESAPEAKE BAY...2 TO 4 FT
UPPER AND MIDDLE CHESAPEAKE BAY...1 TO 2 FT
LONG ISLAND SOUND AND RARITAN BAY...5 TO 10 FT
ELSEWHERE FROM OCEAN CITY MD TO THE CT/RI BORDER...4 TO 8 FT
CT/RI BORDER TO THE SOUTH SHORE OF CAPE COD INCLUDING BUZZARDS
BAY...3 TO 5 FT


SURGE-RELATED FLOODING DEPENDS ON THE RELATIVE TIMING OF THE SURGE
AND THE TIDAL CYCLE...AND CAN VARY GREATLY OVER SHORT DISTANCES.
GIVEN THE LARGE WIND FIELD ASSOCIATED WITH SANDY...ELEVATED WATER
LEVELS COULD SPAN MULTIPLE TIDE CYCLES RESULTING IN REPEATED AND
EXTENDED PERIODS OF COASTAL AND BAYSIDE FLOODING. IN ADDITION...
ELEVATED WATERS COULD OCCUR FAR REMOVED FROM THE CENTER OF SANDY.
FURTHERMORE...THESE CONDITIONS WILL OCCUR REGARDLESS OF WHETHER
SANDY IS A TROPICAL OR POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE. FOR INFORMATION
SPECIFIC TO YOUR AREA...PLEASE SEE PRODUCTS ISSUED BY YOUR LOCAL
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE OFFICE.

This is our local warning. I can see a major highway Rte 95 from my window-it will be interesting to see if weather interupts traffic flow.

High Wind Warning:

Issued at: 12:04 PM EDT on October 28, 2012, expires at: 8:00 PM EDT on October 30, 2012


...
High Wind Warning remains in effect from 8 am Monday to 8 PM EDT Tuesday...

timing...wind gusts over 45 mph are expected by 8 am Monday and wind gusts of 60 to 65 mph are expected Monday afternoon into Tuesday.

Impacts...a prolonged and significant 24-to-36 hour high wind event will take place across the warning area. Coupled with heavy rains from Sandy...the high winds will lead to significant tree damage. Residents...visitors... and businesses across the region should plan for widespread power and communication outages. Precautionary/preparedness actions... Be prepared for extended power outages. If you live near large trees...remain in the lower level of your home or seek shelter elsewhere if possible. Refrain from any unnecessary traveling and stay indoors.

evacuations to the north and south of me, but I am not near any body of water, so I hope I will stay high and dry.

Of course the Media around here is loving this.

Cobwebby,

I am really hoping that you are able to stay high and dry.

It's still not a bad idea to prepare a small bag with essentials like medication, important documents like your passport (in a ziploc or other waterproof bag), a change of clothing, etc. should conditions get suddenly worse. I don't want to be a pessimist, but sometimes drinking water can be cut off to buildings that aren't anywhere near water. This can happen if there is damage to water filtration facilities, and these things can take weeks to repair.

People with four-legged family members have added challenges, but it's good to at least have some sort of plan in mind should you need to evacuate.

Yes, the media is having a heyday -- but this time their dire predictions might actually be accurate.

Take care, and above all stay tuned to what's happening in your immediate vicinity.

Cobwebby,

I'm sure you're already aware of this, but others may not be:

5 p.m. forecast: Hurricane Sandy continues slow trip toward land

'Life-threatening' storm surge flooding expected along coast, National Hurricane Center warns

[snip]

Steady rain should arrive after dark Sunday evening in the Baltimore area, and rain and wind are expected to intensify through Monday morning and afternoon. Heavy rains were already drenching the Eastern Shore Sunday afternoon.

"It's going to be bad from tomorrow morning through Tuesday evening," Jim Lee, a National Weather Service meteorologist, said Sunday. "The peak of the storm, when it will be most severe, is going to be from noon tomorrow until midnight Tuesday."

The storm is expected to dump the most rain along the Maryland coast and Delaware. The Baltimore region should expect about 5 to 10 inches of rain, with more falling in some areas, Lee said.

"Practically every creek in Baltimore City and Baltimore County is going to be out of its banks," Lee said.
Widespread flooding can easily overwhelm sewage treatment and water filtration facilities (depending on where they are). Be alert for any "boil water" advisories even if your water supply isn't cut off.

Emergency Preparedness

Natural disasters such as hurricanes and floods can disrupt your drinking water supply and your wastewater disposal systems. The information below is to help identify some of the issues you may face preparing for, during and after an event that can directly threaten your health and the health of your family. Your source of drinking water and wastewater disposal may be a public water supply or in some cases your own private well and septic.
Getting sleep at times like this can be challenging. I recommend napping if you have a chance so you don't get overly tired when trying to keep up with weather conditions in your area.

Hugs,

Rita

From a Canadian (and especially Toronto) perspective, it's very possible that Sandy is going to create a bit of havoc once the storm reaches the province of Ontario and other parts of Canada. Even though the effects may be minor compared with what is expected to happen in the U.S., I do hope my fellow Canadians are heeding the advice provided by the Red Cross:

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/s ... cross.html
'Frankenstorm' prompts Red Cross warnings in Ontario

72 hours of supplies urged as Sandy expected to head for Canada as post-tropical storm

CBC News

Posted: Oct 28, 2012 1:43 PM ET
Last Updated: Oct 28, 2012 4:04 PM ET

Forecasts of a hybrid storm blending remnants of a post-tropical storm Sandy with already severe weather over Ontario are prompting warnings from relief workers to brace for an emergency by stocking up with at least three days' worth of supplies.

The Canadian Red Cross issued a release Sunday urging Ontario families to ensure they have enough food and water to sustain themselves for at least 72 hours as the weather system, which is lashing the U.S. east coast and North Carolina, continues to lumber towards Ontario with wind speeds of up to 130 km/hr.

Eastern U.S. braces for Hurricane Sandy

Blackouts and flooding could affect many parts of the province, according to Environment Canada. Evacuations are also possible due to the system, which has earned the moniker "Frankenstorm" — a reference to the mix of meteorological factors comprising it.

"Be prepared to take care of yourself and your family for at least 72 hours in an emergency," Mike Morton, the Canadian Red Cross director of disaster management in Ontario, said in a release.

"By taking some time now to store emergency food, water and other supplies, you can provide for your entire family during a power outage or evacuation."


Among items to consider for an emergency kit are:

- Four litres of water per person for each day of a 72-hour period (two litres for drinking, and two litres for washing)
- Enough non-perishable or canned food for each person for 72 hours, as well as enough food for pets
- A manual can opener
- A crank or battery-operated flashlight, with extra batteries
- A crank or battery-operated radio, with extra batteries
- Spare keys for the house and car
- A first aid kit
- Cash in small bills, in case power outages restrict the use of bank machines
- Other special needs items such as medications, baby formula, diapers and equipment for people with disabilities

The Canadian Red Cross recommends keeping the supplies in easy-to-carry containers, such as rolling suitcases *, so they can be easily transported in the event of an evacuation.

(* See Rita's note below)

CBC weather specialist Craig Larkins said Sandy, which is still a Category 1 hurricane, is 1,300 kilometres wide, making it the second-largest tropical storm in the Atlantic since 1988.

Eastern Ontario to bear brunt of weather

"That says a lot — it could actually still take the No. 1 spot," Larkins said Sunday, adding that Sandy will be downgraded to a post-tropical storm as it pushes towards Ontario.

Environment Canada forecasts the worst of the rain and winds to smack the province Monday night and into Tuesday morning. Gusts are expected to be around 90 to 100 km/hr, with the worst winds expected around southeastern and eastern Ontario and in the Hamilton, Niagara and Sarnia regions.

"Toronto will be seeing its fair share of rain as well, part of that separate disturbance that's moving through the province right now, but again the two will merge, so 50 millimetres [of rainfall in Toronto] will climb possibly over the 100 millimetre mark by Wednesday," Larkins said. "So it's a three-day event when we're talking rainfall."

[snip]
Note:

100 km (kilometres) = 62 mph
100 mm (millimetres) is just shy of 4 inches

* Despite the advice given by the Red Cross, rolling suitcases aren't all that practical when there's significant flooding or very high winds. A knapsack probably makes more sense in these conditions -- and especially if someone is carrying a child or animal and/or uses a cane.

It's already pretty soggy in and around Toronto, and any more rain is likely to overwhelm the sewer system in at least some parts of the city. One neighbourhood close to Lake Ontario floods on a regular basis, and I'm sure folks who live there are already busy preparing for more rain.

This is a critical point as Sandy is turning toward the north as predicted. If and when Sandy makes the expected turns northwest and west-northwest later today/tonight, folks will need to pay very close attention to weather conditions in their area and stay tuned for instructions from local officials.
