One day ago, I read some news about this super storm Sandy that will hit the east coast. I messaged my husband right away about it. The next day that was Sunday morning his time, he told me that the super storm will pass through later yet. It was raining so hard on Sunday morning his time, I could even hear the rain when the husband went out to check the surroundings. Monday morning his time, he called me immediately when he woke up, he said it is already raining very hard, the sky looks as if it is still dusk. We were still able to chat when I arrived home from the training, and showed me some videos of the storm at the Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, which was said to have the major impact.
This morning my time, night time his time. He told me that the electricity is now fluctuating. My husband is staying at the basement of his house through the night. And this is the update from Live Blog as of 7:00 p.m.
Hurricane Sand, a massive storm described by forecasters as one of the largest to ever hit the United States, has picked up speed and is moving northwest at 28 mph. Maximum sustained winds are 85 mph. The center will soon make landfall near Atlantic City, NJ. The Category 1 hurricane is threatening nearly 50 million people.
