Description:By Rob Gutro: NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md.,

Hurricane Sandy (Atlantic Ocean)

”On Oct. 27 at 1907 UTC (3:07 p.m. EDT), NASA's TRMM satellite saw that rain associated with Hurricane Sandy storm's center, was moderate (in green and blue) and falling at a rate of 20 to 40 mm per hour. The heaviest rainfall at the time of this image was falling west of the center at more than 2 inches/50 mm per hour (red).”
"The National Hurricane Center has issued Flood Watches for the U.S. East coast and interior areas because Sandy is huge, slow moving and can drop up to 2 inches of rain per hour."
