Hurricane Sandy: Frankenstorm LIVE Coverage

Hurricane Sandy continues to move northward, and is projected to slam into the eastern seaboard on Monday evening.

Hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers had been ordered to evacuate and the city’s mass transit system was shut down on Sunday as officials braced for storm surges of up to 11 feet from approaching Hurricane Sandy.

Hurricane Sandy is a massive, late-season tropical cyclone that has affected Jamaica, Cuba, The Bahamas, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and the United States, and is currently threatening the East Coast of the United States and Eastern Canada. The 18th tropical cyclone, 18th named storm, and 10th hurricane of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season, Sandy developed from an elongated tropical wave in the western Caribbean Sea on October 22. It became a tropical depression, quickly strengthened, and was upgraded to a tropical storm six hours later. Sandy moved slowly northward toward the Greater Antilles and gradually strengthened.

Is this Hurricane Sandy the product of global warming? as per the Telegraph blog The problem with hurricanes and is that there hasn’t been  enough record in the past so it is difficult to confirm any trend. Maybe in another 20-30  years we’ll know enough data about hurricane to know a trend where global warming was responsible for an increase in the strengths of tropical storms.

I hope that people will draw a lesson from this, I take this as a warning from Mother Nature. Earth will bounce back, it has done this many times in the past but humans might not be able to.
