  1. Pouring rain here.
  2. When will the winds be at their peak?
  3. Just a few drops here in southwest Nassau.
  4. Didn't get a drop of rain here. Both areas of rain missed me to the west and east. It hasn't rained here in 15 days. I'm hoping I get some rain tonight otherwise I'll have to go outside and water my plants.
  5. Strong winds knocked over some of my potted plants but so far not a drop of rain.
  6. Yep, and his other works too.
  7. No one knows how common the 1821 hurricane occurs. It could be a 200 year storm or 500 year storm or more. 6 years earlier in 1815 a hurricane makes landfall in Suffolk County with a track and intensity very similar to the 1938 hurricane as noted by David Ludlum. A category 3 hurricane making landfall in the center of long Island is probably more likely to occur than a category 3 directly over New York City or Nassau County.
  8. Yes, is caused a lot of structural damage. Maybe it maintained it's strength the same way hazel did. I found some of the original newspaper articles of the hurricane for New York City. Links are here: New-York evening post., September 04, 1821, Page 2, Image 2 New-York evening post., September 05, 1821, Page 2, Image 2
  9. The hurricane of September 1821 was estimated to have been a category 4 when it made landfall at Cape May New Jersey and a category 3 when it made a direct hit on New York City. It caused an incredible amount of damage there. The 1821 hurricane was probably the equivalent of the 1938 hurricane but a lot further west. Maybe someone could post a link to the newspaper articles from that time. About 10 years ago I found the newspaper articles from that time and it was definitely interesting reading through the type of damage the hurricane caused.
  10. I was 13 at the time but I do remember damage everywhere in Lynbrook in 1998 from the tornado. I don't think we've had a thunderstorm like that since then.
  11. Currently Heavy sleet mixed with snow. The sidewalks and street aren't covered in snow yet. Only the grass.
  12. Currently Snowing and sleeting in SW Nassau. Ground covered in sleet.
