It was being called Superstorm Sandy when it made landfall at about 8pm in New Jersey. It wreaked havoc along the northeastern seaboard. Since then it was downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone, but forecasters warned it was still packing destructive force. 

Sandy has been a strange storm. It combined with another system over Virginia to bring heavy snow. Some areas were expected to receive as much as 60 to 90 centimeters of flurries. Sandy is now heading north to northeast, its power dropping as it moves further from the sea. Better weather is expected on Wednesday.


桑蒂颶風在台北時間今天上午,在美東的新澤西州登陸後,造成嚴重災情。目前桑蒂的威力,雖已減弱為溫帶風暴,但氣象預報顯示,桑蒂還可能為美國東北地區帶來更嚴重的災情。

桑蒂目前朝北北東方向前進,距離海洋越來越遠,威力也將逐漸減弱,美國東岸地區的天氣可望在週三開始好轉。
