Sandy washed up

A washed up and commented documentary of the tropical storm Sandy that devastated large parts of Jamaica, Cuba, Haiti, Bahamas, Bermuda, US-Eastcoast, New York City by Monday, October 29th 2012.

Sandy was the largest Atlantic hurricane on record, as measured by diameter, with winds spanning 1,800 km (1,100 miles). Sandy was estimated in early calculations to have caused damage of at least $20 billion (2012 USD). Preliminary estimates of losses that include business interruption surpass $50 billion (2012 USD), which, if confirmed, would make it the second-costliest Atlantic hurricane in history, behind only Hurricane Katrina.

Global warming's influence on the storm is the subject of ongoing media discussion. According to Kevin E. Trenberth of the National Center for Atmospheric Research, "natural variability and weather has provided the perhaps optimal conditions of a hurricane running into extra-tropical conditions to make for a huge intense storm, enhanced by global warming influences." Unusually warm ocean surface temperatures contributed to the size and strength of the storm, and the storm lingered due to a strong blocking pattern. According to their analysis, global warming is expected to continue to increase ocean surface temperatures and the frequency of blocking patterns in the future. Mark Fischetti of Scientific American proposed a more explicit link, arguing that the melting of Arctic ice caused a negative North Atlantic Oscillation, which fueled the expansion of Sandy by pushing the jet stream south.
