Weather centers across the East Coast predicted a big storm but even they did not forsee three storm fronts converging on the East Coast until a few days ago. Right now Hurricane Sandy is expected to exceed last years devastating Hurricane Irene that caused millions in damage across the Mid Atlantic states and New England. Evacuations across the Hamptons and North Fork are in full effect and residents are urged to remain indoors. Widespread flooding after this mornings high tide emboldened many social photogs to scout out amazing signs of the storm. LIPA is reporting over 40,000 power outages as of 1:30 p.m. today.
