At Least 35 Ways To Watch Hurricane Sandy

Laneia’s Team Pick:

Are you trapped in an office, unable to watch 24 hr coverage of Hurricane Sandy’s landfall? Or maybe you just want as much Sandy on as many informational screens in your area as possible? Well The Atlantic has kindly compiled a list of 35+ webcams that are currently livestreaming the effects of the hurricane. Unfortunately for spectators, some effects of a hurricane include knocking out power to webcams, so a few of these are useless. But! The view from the New York Times building is pretty stunning/bleak.

Another way to keep up is with Instacane, a site compiling every Instagram photo tagged with #sandy, which means you’re also getting lots of pictures of soup and dogs. Results vary.

longbranch via unclesal — is this even real? i have no idea.

And finally, the super neatest thing is this wind map from hint.fm.

    yep. I can back up that wind chart’s veracity, because status in Eastern Michigan is “windy as fuck”. Also competing with status “bad day to wear hair down.” I’m partial to the latter at the moment, because I’m right next to the door that people insist on using.

    The hurricane’s only a category 1. The main danger is the storm surge. If you’re not on the coast and have a decent house, you’ll be just fine. :)
    I live in Florida, so it’s really nice out right now. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky today! :D
