We know the damage a hurricane can inflict all too well; Irene was very hard for many of us in the Albany area, so we know firsthand that any help you can get, you need. There are people who need our help downstate and we want to our best to reach out a hand to those in need - that's why we're doing an S.O.S Day - Show Our Support. Find out how you can help victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Check out these before and after shots of the eastern seaboard before and after Hurricane Sandy. What these maps show are the lights of cities and it's just so shocking to see how many places are without electricity.
The entire northeast is getting plenty of high winds due to Sandy. We found a site that shows a 'live' charting via animation of all the wind blowing in the continental United States. It's shocking to see what a large mass of air the pressure inside Sandy is commanding - and just how widespread it is.
As predicted, Hurricane Sandy created one crazy night. Millions without power, explosions, flooding and at least 18 people dead. Don't let your braggedy friends on Facebook convince you this wasn't a big deal. It was crazy. Here are some pics to sum up what happened. Feel free to share your photos in the comments.
We're going to keep you updated every time there is a change in information or new information about Sandy as she approaches the Albany area. Please keep checking back and refreshing the page to display the latest information.
The photos flooding social media sites such as Twitter and Instagram as well as Facebook are just shocking to see. Lower Manhattan is flooding, the power is out in large parts of NYC as the city takes a beating from Sandy. Also Atlantic City and other cities along the east.
When major storms happen it is a given that meteorologists and news reporters will be out in the thick of things reporting what is going on. When that happens, many times you can also be sure that someone will see that as a perfect opportunity to get their 15 minutes of fame on the television.
