Tropical Storm Sandy may end up causing more issues on the coast than people might imagine. Sometimes we focus too much on the category of a storm or the line track and not all the impacts associated with tropical systems. This would be a prime example here with Sandy. Even though the storm’s center might stay well offshore the impacts on the coast could be large and long-lasting. I can’t stress enough that if you live in the coastal zone be ready for possible flooding. This large storm combined with it’s long duration and a full moon Monday will lead to very high water. Here’s a look at what might happen this weekend into next week. Now is the time to prepare.
