Tracking Hurricane Sandy: Handy Maps And Apps
Hurricane Sandy is bearing down on the East Coast of the U.S., bringing sustained wind, heavy rain, and flooding that's forcing roads, bridges and mass transit systems to close from New York City to Washington. We're following the storm's progress and its impacts here on The Two-Way .
The National Weather Service is providing updated forecasts and maps regularly on its website. And there's a close-up, color-coded status of the weather conditions along the East Coast.
We've dug up a few more resources: a selection of storm-tracking maps, graphics and animations from across the web. You can leave links for other web resources in the comments section below.
