Hurricane Sandy

Before the power goes out, there are some resources that you can tap into.

Aside from the usual storm tracking from NOAA is the list of USGS streamgages in the path of the storm. Most allow real-time tracking, as seen above.

Live cameras of the waterfronts at Battery Park City, Hoboken, and a Cape May beach may also be interesting as long as they are still working. In New Brunswick you can see the Rt 27 bridge and Rt 18 just a little too far from where the Raritan usually takes ownership.

For news, Bill McKibben is maintaining a fascinating Twitter feed.

Expect good local coverage from the Cape May County Herald and the Press of Atlantic City.

Also, Hurricane Sandy Speaks.
