Neptune After the Tempest Sandy

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Hurricane Sandy, that is. Since nature has served up a different sort of display today, I will take a little break from the photo road trip I began with the last several pictures and record some scenes of the ongoing storm taken in the midafternoon, At this point it has been raining hard and continuously for about 36 hours and the center of the storm is located nearly 200 miles (320km.) NE. At the peak of the storm surge during the morning high tide the water came up to the edge of the boardwalk (actually, its concrete). Even at "low" tide shown here more than half of the normal beach area is underwater. The Hilton Hotel provides the right frame for the shot and the view is to the SSE. For comparison purposes see photo nos. 74649194 (Hurricane Irene) and 74649191.
