This will be the biggest weather event Richmond has experienced since Irene, and will likely be considered historic across many states in the Mid Atlantic and Northeast. 

When NASA’s Terra satellite flew over Hurricane Sandy around noon local time on Oct. 25, it captured a visible image of Hurricane Sandy that showed the large extent of the storm.

Sandy has grown since the morning hours on Oct. 25 by about 120 miles in diameter according to satellite data.
