SANDY was a tropical cyclone that severely affected the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern US in late October. It was the largest Atlantic hurricane on record, with winds spanning 1,100 miles (1,800 km)... (see Wikipedia) Global warming makes extreme events like Sandy more probable. The Atlantic ocean gulf current is warmer, giving more energy to the weather system. The sea level is getting higher, making flooding worse. The anomalous jet stream configuration that... More »
