Latest on Hurricane Sandy, winds gust up to 50 mph in California
- by admin
STORM STORM: Tropical storm Sandy made landfall near Los Angeles on Wednesday, making landfall near the city’s coast and making landfall on the West Coast in California.
Sandy is expected to continue to move north across the West, bringing winds in excess of 50 mph to coastal areas and damaging coastal structures.
The National Hurricane Center warned that Sandy will strengthen, as it moves closer to the coast, and that coastal flooding will continue.
This is a developing story.
A strong wind and rain will continue to cause flooding in coastal areas for the next several days.
As of Wednesday afternoon, the National Weather Service had recorded winds of over 65 mph.
The storm has already dumped some 70 inches of rain in some parts of the West and a total of more than 11 inches in Southern California.
The hurricane, which is about 50 mph winds and gusts of up to 60 mph, is forecast to continue moving east across the country and the South.
Weather experts say Sandy is the most powerful storm to hit the U.S. since Hurricane Andrew in 1988.
The weather service says the storm is expected as a category 4 hurricane, the most dangerous category in hurricane status.
There were reports of damage in parts of southern California, but not in the coastal areas, the weather service said.
Sandy was expected to bring heavy rains to the West during the next couple of days, bringing heavy snow to parts of California and southern New England.
The forecast for the storm has not changed significantly from Tuesday night.
The rain and snow is expected in California by Wednesday, with heavy amounts in the mountains by Thursday.
Forecasters are predicting that the storm will likely remain a tropical storm until Friday.
It’s a little bit harder to predict where Sandy will be headed and where it will affect the East Coast, forecasters said.
The agency said Sandy’s impact on the East coast could be significant.
The Storm Prediction Center said the storm could affect Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia.
But those states were more in the path of Sandy than the East.
The center’s track also predicted that the next day, the storm was likely to move away from the East, making it a bit easier to forecast where Sandy would be headed.
