The best Source for Sandy Hurricane Updates is NOAA - I4U News

The best Source for Sandy Hurricane Updates is NOAA - I4U News | Dounya-Geolog | Scoop.it
New York is now sure to be hit by Hurricane Sandy. The Super Storm is accelerating and is expected to bring life-threatening storm surfge and costal hurrican winds. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is the source for the latest Hurricane Sandy updates. The NOAA site features the latest forecasts and satellite images from Sandy. You can stay a step ahead of news outlets by directly looking at the data. Of course some of it is rather nerdy stuff.

Sea-level rise is occurring much faster than scientists expected – exposing millions more Americans to the destructive floods produced by future Sandy-like storms, new research suggests.

Satellite measurements over the last two decades found global sea levels rising 60% faster than the computer projections issued only a few years ago by the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

The faster sea-level rise means the authorities will have to take even more ambitious measures to protect low-lying population centres – such as New York City, Los Angeles or Jacksonville, Florida – or risk exposing millions more people to a destructive combination of storm surges on top of sea-level rise, scientists said.

Scientists earlier this year found sea-level rise had already doubled the annual risk of historic flooding across a widespread area of the United States.
