Crash! On October 27, 2012 at 10:50 A.M, Super Storm Sandy left dozens dead, thousands homeless and millions without power. Super Storm Sandy was the 18th named storm of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season. Sandy made landfall in United States at about 8 p.m. on October 29, 2012 in Atlantic City New Jersey. It had winds of 80 miles per hour! Sandy was nicknamed ‘’Frankenstorm’’ as well as “Blizzacane” and “Snoreastern.” Sandy’s water inundated tunnels, subway stations, and sent hospital patients scrambling for safety.
During Sandy, some areas were getting residual rain and snow showers. The airlines had canceled more the 15,000 flights around the world. After the disaster, 125 residents helped by cleaning up tree branches, boardwalks and much more. This disaster happened because it started as a tropical storm with spinning winds. Then they form into thunderstorms. Next, with the rotating of the Earth and the thunderstorm happening, it turned into a Hurricane.
I’ve learned from this disaster that New Jersey will come back. For the future people should always know New Jersey will always stay strong, and always be fun. I learned that New Jersey is strong and we can build again. Nothing can stop us!
