Sandy: Surge, Wind, Rain, Snow Update

Atlantic City is "mostly flooded" according to local officials. Water levels will only continue to rise through at least 8pm and probably until midnight. Other coastal cities are now being flooded.

Here are the latest forecasts from my colleagues at AccuWeather:

Storm Surge. Water (with waves + tides) will reach as 
far as 30' above sea level in places!
Note the characterization of "Devastating."

Ground-Level Wind Gusts
Wind gusts will likely be over 100 mph at the tops of high rise
buildings in and around NY-Newark and south into New Jersey
D.C. - Baltimore should have gusts to 75 mph. 

Additional Rainfall and Snowfall. Blizzard in the Mountains
