Above the Blue Marble: Hurricane Sandy from Space

NASA astronauts high above Earth get an extraordinary look at deadly storms


A year after Hurricane Sandy devastated the U.S. East Coast, we look back at the deadly storm and the unique perspective astronauts had of the swirling hurricane aboard the International Space Station.

"Seeing hurricanes from space is just an amazing thing, because you realize how powerful the forces of nature really are," NASA astronaut Michael Barratt tells SKYE.

You guys ever think about building maybe a mile or two back from the coast instead of right ON an eastern seaboard that's been hit by hurricane after hurricane over the years? They're only going to get worse and ultimately insurance companies will no longer cover your properties.

We move into areas that we should not be in, we build structures too weak to stand up to nature and we allow humanity to over populate....evolution could care less about compassion, if you are dumb, good bye.

Glad I saw this, it shows how these people chose to live on a sandbar. Bad choice, consequences, looking for someone else to foot the bills.

It is good that the people there decided to be Mississippi strong as that helped them to survive and rebuild after the storm.

She is mistaken on two counts: (1) When you have a home equity line of credit you can't get flood insurance reimbursement until the bank inspects your repairs. National Flood insurance pays you whether you have made repairs or not (except when your bank refuses to endorse your refund). Better to have a cash reserve instead of a home equity loan line. (2) portable generators are better when there is a flood. Large whole house generators were flooded under water and didn't work. Portables can be brought up to higher levels in the house until the water recedes and then can be used after the water recedes. Fixed generators on the ground did no good once they were inundated with flood water.
