Hurricane Sandy, a huge and slow-moving behemoth of a storm, is making landfall somewhere around New Jersey and is living lived up to every hyped prediction of being an historic hundred year event.

 

We've been following the hurricane closely here at MNN but I wanted to pass on two links that I've been using to monitor its progress.

 

Wind Map is, well, a map of the wind. It gives a quick and comprehensive view on how things are blowing.

 

• Google's Hurricane Sandy Crisis Map is a bit more functional and not only shows how the hurricane is tracking but also shows the location of shelters where people can seek refuge from the storm.

 

Stay safe!
