A moment-by-moment account of the largest Atlantic storm system ever recorded--a hurricane like no other. It was the largest storm anyone had ever seen. Initially a tropical storm, Sandy had grown into a hybrid monster. It charged across open ocean, picking up strength with every step, baffling meteorologists and scientists, officials and emergency managers, even the maritime wisdom of sailors and seamen. When the storm made landfall, Sandy was not just enormous, it was also unprecedented. As a result, the entire nation was left flat-footed. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration couldn't issue reliable warnings; the Coast Guard didn't know what to do. Journalist Kathryn Miles takes readers inside the maelstrom, detailing the stories of professionals at the National Hurricane Center and National Weather Service. The characters include a forecaster who risked his job to sound the alarm in New Jersey, the crew of the ill-fated tall ship Bounty, Mayor Bloomberg, Governor Christie, and countless coastal residents whose homes--and lives--were torn apart and then left to wonder. When is the next superstorm coming?
