Episode Narrative Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy made landfall near Ocean City, NJ at 8 pm EDT on Monday, October 29th. Sandy was a hybrid storm that allowed for some mid-latitude characteristics, including a large wind field that stretched some 500 miles from the center. This was largely attributed to a 90 mb pressure difference between Sandy's center (945mb) and High pressure (1036mb) in northern Ontario.
In Vermont, a predominant east-northeast wind blew across the region with the strongest winds in northeast Vermont and along some Green Mountain western slope communities. Much of the state witnessed wind gusts of 35 to 45 mph with those western slope communities in the 50-60 mph range. Tree and power line damage was scattered but still left a total of 35,000 residents without power at some point during the storm.
Some of the stronger wind gusts included: 72 mph atop of Mount Mansfield, 61 mph at Vail Hill in Lyndonville, 60 mph in Underhill, 55 mph in Morrisville and 53 mph at Rutland airport in Clarendon.
Event Narrative East-northeast winds of 20 to 30 mph with infrequent gusts of 40 to 50 mph caused some isolated small trees, branches and limbs to be knocked down. Isolated power outages occurred as well.
