Mega-Storm Sandy From Space

Though downgraded to a post-tropical storm, Sandy continues to pummel the East Coast of the United States. The massive storm has drowned neighborhoods, knocked out power to millions and ignited fires that have burned down tens of homes.

This spectacular image was taken by NOAA’s GOES-13 satellite today at 6:02 a.m. EDT. According to the National Hurricane Center, at 11 a.m. EDT, Sandy was centered halfway between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, moving west at 10 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour.
