Hurricane Sandy is a storm that touched us all. From the Caribbean to Canada and the United States of America, the effects of the devastation are not yet fully known and will be with us for some time as the world rebuilds again. Two dramatic captures of the 'wind map' are available from the landfall event in the U.S. (Oct. 29) and as the storm moved inland (Oct 30). A sharp contrast between the major physiographic regions of the US is depicted - the mountain ranges in the West, the central Great and Coastal Plains, and the turbulent Appalachian Mountains and East Coast. They tell a tumultous story of hardship, conflict, unity, and hope.
