Cool satellite video tracks Sandy’s life and death

To mark the one year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy, the National Weather Service has a special web page that shows the track and forecast models of Sandy.

The page is loaded with lots of information, stats, photos, charts and graphs including storm surge, wind speeds.

Among the facts, the highest wave recorded from Sandy was 32.5 feet! It was recorded about 15 miles southeast of Breezy Point, N.Y.

It also has this very cool satellite video, above, showing the life and death of Sandy. It’s 3 minutes and 23 seconds long, but you can advance the video to the time it smashes Connecticut.

You can find the special Sandy page here.
