Tropical Storm (was hurricane) Sandy

A storm surge warning is currently in place for the east coast of the United States from the late-season tropical storm Sandy. See this advisory and this storm surge forecast issued by the US National Hurricane Centre.

Sandy has already made landfall in Jamaica and Cuba, causing around 40 casualties. A storm surge of up to 2m has been reported in Cuba (see e.g. this Reuters report).

Satellite images of Sandy are available from NASA

On the GDACS website, you can find the results of an experimental storm surge model created by the JRC, which has been run for this event. (An animation from this JRC model is shown below.)
