The video was taken on October 29 at noon, some 16 hours before Hurricane Sandy should make landfall here in the Hudson Valley. It is much worse out now an hour after I shot this video. This is going to be very, very bad by the time high tide comes tonight.
This video was shot at 9:45 a.m. on October 29, approximately at high tide. Note that this is the surge before the storm. Hurricane Sandy has not arrived yet. This is going to be one tough storm.
I can feel it, it’s going to be really, really bad.
In parts of Long Island, the flooding is much worse.
Other than the winds, the storm hasn’t actually arrived in Nyack, NY at 9:35 a.m. However, it’s already started flooding in the River village and it’s going to get worse. So much water will be pushed into the Hudson River that by high tide tonight, the place I took this picture from will likely be underwater.
The timing and possible severity of Hurricane Sandy, aka ‘Frankenstorm‘ brings a flood of worries for the political watchers. Including:
- How will this storm affect election turnout in battleground states such as New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia?
- Federal disaster relief was used by House Republicans as a political football after Hurricane Irene last year. Will they double down, demanding that Democrats and President Obama make drastic budget concessions once again, and hold hostage those affected by the storm?
- What economic impact could this storm possibly have on the economic recovery, specifically on the U.S. East Coast?
Freddie Mac, the taxpayer-owned mortgage giant, made it harder for millions of Americans to refinance their high-interest-rate mortgages for fear it would cut into company profits, present and former Freddie Mac officials disclosed in recent interviews.
What’s the big deal with the new Farm Bill? Most importantly, the House version contains three industry-friendly provisions collectively known as the “Monsanto Rider.” These provisions would make it more difficult to stem the tide of GMO foods hitting store shelves.
Join Cliff Weathers Saturday at 11 a.m. as he discusses the possible political and economic repercussions of a colossus that AccuWeather’s senior meteorologist is predicting to be “a disaster of Biblical proportions.”
After hateful ads implying that Muslims are “savages” were posted in New York subway stations, a Christian group launched its own campaign.
Since 2007 when the owner of Indian Point, Entergy Nuclear Operations, applied to renew its operating licenses for the two nuclear reactors in Buchanan, New York, apocalyptic warnings on both sides of the debate over whether to keep the nuclear facility open have proliferated.
