On October 29, 2012 around 7:30 PM, Sandy made landfall near Brigantine, NJ. Even though it was reclassified as a post-tropical storm hours before landfall, winds were estimated at 80 mph with a central pressure of 945 mb. This is the second lowest pressure on record for any tropical or post-tropical system north of North Carolina, with the top spot going to the 1938 New England hurricane. Sandy's strength was so far reaching that it produced coastal erosion from Maine to Florida, created 20 foot waves on the Great Lakes, and produced a blizzard for the Appalachian mountains that dropped 2-3 feet of snow.
Climate Central has created a special webpage for the one year anniversary of Sandy.
