Re: Halloween Hurricane

Doing fine here. Worst appears to be over although system is parked north of Baltimore and needs to move on. High tide with south winds gavels us 3 ft above normal and washed over our piers and docks at 7 bit was manageable. Only one dock box broke cause the owner didn't put holes in the bottom. One more high tide to go and the water is emptying from this AM.

Still no power so running of the batteries. Black cat propane heater getting a workout as the temps are in the low 40s. Glad the wind finally died off. Probably sty tonight and back to work tomorrow.

Haleakula is one tuff gal.

Re: Forked River & LBI Updates

Jim, that is one UGLY photo!

Wilberts and the State Marina are still under water. Definitely a great job by Dave, Dennis and the crew pulling and prepping boats. These guys know what they're doing.

No word on marinas closer to the bay. Evidently Bay Ave is still flooded out. I'm going to try and get down later today to check on my boat if the roads are passable.

Water levels reported by the USGS tide station on Cedar Creek are at 7.25 feet above normal and not dropping. Probably a combination of rain water run off and water trapped in Barnegat Bay. I'd expect water levels on Forked River to be similar.

Long Beach Island didn't fair so well. What I've been hearing out of Shelter Harbor Marina in Beach Haven is pretty dire (see post #203). Evidently Morrisons took a pretty good hit as well. The picture below is a cell phone photo forwarded to me by a friend on the island. I don't have any more details on Morrison's but the photo speaks for itself.

Re: Halloween Hurricane

These photos were just posted by Southwinds marina.

Water looks to be about 2-2 1/2' in the parking lot. Docks under water. Most of the boats who decided to weather the storm there were tied in the lee of the condos. No photos from there so no telling how they made out.

Boats blocked behind the office. I'm wondering how high the water was during the surge. Notice the power boat on the right is shifted off at least one of its stands.


Looking out towards Forked River, the Beach Bar is on the left.

Re: Halloween Hurricane

This storm that was supposed to drop 2-4" of rain and give us 55 mph winds has seemingly just...well.. disappeared. It was almost calm this morning. The skies in The Adirondacks are clearing at present, very little rain has fallen. There's a little wind but Sandy seems to have scooted right by us. Not complaining, mind you, but this was the weirdest darned storm. The idea that a hurricane, packing 90 mph winds could hit NYC, just 250 miles south and then veer off to completely miss us is astounding. We and the folks in Vermont are breathing a sigh of relief that we did not get the "500 year" floods that occurred with Irene last year.

Re: Halloween Hurricane

smurphny,

The worst is probably over, but I don't think you've seen the last of this yet.

Re: Halloween Hurricane

I think it is just headed due north instead of hooking back east up into the St. Lawrence Valley. It has every appearance of clearing out right now. I can't detect wind direction here down in the valley but would bet it's turning west and clearing out. I fully expected to hear the wind howling and the creek roaring this morning and maybe a ride over to the boat to see if it was still on its stands but it was calm as could be...strange.

Re: Halloween Hurricane

This is the first aerial of Long Beach Island New Jersey.

I don't even have words for this.

Re: Halloween Hurricane

I'm delighted to see so many who posted still posting, thus they made it through the storm and have time enough and power to post. Thanks Chef for your updates as the storm came through.

I see a glaring absence of CalebD, who posted that he lived near the red area on the SLOSH map.

I hope his home is OK and that he is too busy and/or no power. Anyone have any contact/knowledge of Caleb?

No Hurricane Warning for What Could Be the Most Expensive Storm in History

Saw this on Accuweather today, a video made before Sandy hit. Part of the article:

AccuWeather CEO Barry Myers urged the National Hurricane Center (NHC) to reverse its decision not to issue hurricane or tropical storm warnings for Sandy north of North Carolina.

"To indicate that there is a landfalling hurricane and to issue warnings about it is the most effective thing that can be done to warn the public," Myers said.....

.....Not issuing such warnings has already led to mixed signals for both public safety officials and the public.

"Mayor Bloomberg was confused at one point over the weekend whether Sandy was a hurricane. If the mayor of the biggest city in the United States was confused, emergency management and others certainly can be confused," Myers added.



Scroll down past the article to see the video.
