Post-Hurricane Sandy Coordination Message #3 and Happy Thanksgiving Message

Hello to all..

..First and foremost, on behalf of the volunteer staff of WX1BOX, the Amateur Radio Station at the National Weather Service in Taunton Massachusetts and the NWS Taunton weather forecasters, a very Happy Thanksiving to all! We appreciate everyone’s support during the 2012 season and look forward to your continued support for the remainder of 2012 into 2013..
..The following is an updated summary on the impacts on Hurricane Sandy from around the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast United States. This will likely be the last summary regarding Hurricane Sandy’s impacts across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic US region..

We would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving on behalf of the staff of volunteer Amateur Radio Operators at WX1BOX, the Amateur Radio Station at NWS Taunton, and SKYWARN Coordinators across the NWS Taunton coverage area as well as on behalf of the NWS Taunton forecasters. We are all very appreciative of the support we have received all this year and in past years and look forward to your continued support for the remainder of 2012 into 2013. This is also a time to reflect and provide what will likely be a final summary on Hurricane Sandy’s impacts to our region and provide some valuable links on the response and recovery efforts ongoing in the New Jersey, New York City and Long Island New York areas.

Starting in Southern New England, an updated Public Information Statement Storm Summary on Hurricane Sandy was provided on November 8th, 2012. This update has been provided as a link in this post storm coordination message. In addition, a complete updated storm reports summary from the desk at WX1BOX has been provided which also includes reports from various automated non-ASOS/NWS weather station sites of wind gusts of 45 MPH or greater over the region.

Also included in this update are many of the pictures and videos we have received to date except for files that were greater than 100 MB (due to the length of time it would take for viewing). If anyone has pictures or video from Hurricane Sandy from Southern New England, it is not too late to send them as a reply to this email or via the pics at nsradio.org email address. Credit will be given to the spotter/Amateur Radio Operator for providing the picture and video. Work will be done on a Hurricane Sandy storm collage video and will likely be completed in the March 2013 timeframe. This will eventually be made available on the web near this timeframe as well.

As stated previously, while Hurricane Sandy caused hurricane force wind gusts across portions of Southern New England, some of the most significant storm surge flooding particularly in Rhode Island and Marthas Vineyard that rivaled Hurricane Bob, over 1.1 Million power outages over Massachusetts (approx. 390K), Rhode Island (approx. 122K) and Connecticut (approx 600+K), the impact was even worse across New York City, Long Island and New Jersey. Power Outages in this area totaled over 3 Million people with an additional 525,000 without power in Pennsylvania. Storm Surge flooding was historic across New Jersey, New York City and Long Island New York causing severe structural damage and reshaping the coastline due to severe beach erosion. Power Outages in some areas lasted well over a week to 2 weeks. Many areas along the coastline are still in a high impact recovery operation in this region. Donations for those in this area continue to be requested due to the extent of structural damage largely from storm surge but also from hurricane force winds.
