NBC Los Angeles – Winter storms unleashed days of downpours on California. These aerial images show the extent of the flooding and effects of the unrelenting winter storms throughout the state, including San Jose, where 14,000 people were evacuated after neighborhoods were inundated with water. Several more weeks remain in California’s wet season, which brings the potential for more damage.

Millions of people in the eastern United States dug out Sunday from a historic blizzard that brought New York and Washington to a standstill, but travel woes look set to persist into another week.

The storm — dubbed “Snowzilla” — killed at least 18 people after it walloped several states from Friday into early Sunday, affecting an estimated 85 million residents who were told to stay in doors and off the roads for their own safety. Forecasters said 26.8 inches (68 centimeters) of snow fell in New York’s Central Park, the second-highest accumulation in the city since records began in 1869, and more than 22 inches paralyzed the capital Washington.

Near-record-breaking snowfall was recorded in other cities up and down the East Coast, with Philadelphia and Baltimore also on the receiving end of some of the worst that Mother Nature could fling at them. (AP)

Sandy: The Largest Storm To Hit The US?

28 10 2012

Hurricane Sandy had killed at least 66 people in the Caribbean islands, including 51 in Haiti.

Forecasters said that Sandy is likely to make U.S. landfall on Monday night between Delaware and the New York/New Jersey area.

Sandy will meet two other winter storms and becomes a rare, hybrid “super storm” created by an Arctic jet stream wrapping itself around a tropical storm.

The monstrous Hurricane Sandy is going to be a very big storm when it hit the United States.

Officials warned millions of people in coastal areas to get out of the way.

It will effect the third of the country from the East Coast to the Great Lakes and 50 to 60 millions of people with heavy of rains, high winds and heavy snow. 

Sandy could cause lots of damage because it could hit big cities like Boston, New York, Baltimore, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia.

This is a disaster.
