Sandy: Storm rages on
Government's Sandy review team gets one biting review.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced today it had assembled a team to assess how the National Weather Service performed during Sandy.
They held that the distinction was unnecessary and confusing, and that in the court of common sense a storm with hurricane-force winds merited a "hurricane" warning.
Last week, Chris Landsea, Science and Operations Officer at the National Hurricane Center, and one of the nation's most-respected tropical storm specialists, essentially agreed.
The NOAA team is scheduled to begin work Jan. 6.
