All this real-time data from a hurricane is cool, but...

These data sets and images are very interesting and important

for scientific research, but the reality of a hurricane is devastation.

North Carolina was hardest hit, but New Jersey also suffered some

serious damage. Approximately $250 million in damages affected

more than half the state’s population, which made it the single most

costly disaster in the history of the state. The town of Bound Brook

had multiple fires from electrical shorts (below), yet was buried

under 10 feet of water. Downtown

New Brunswick (right) was closed

for 2 days following the Storm.

Here’s a summary of some of the damages:

1) 4 people dead

2) 10,000 evacuated

3) 31,000 with no power for 1 week or more

4) 30,000 with no water for at least 4 days

5) 1.3 million must boil drinking water for three weeks
