It's the worst storm that ever hit the Jersey Shore.Hurricane Researcher Brian McNoldy at the University of Miami says it beat Hurricane Katrina in power.  Once Sandy ramped up to a Category 1 hurricane and slammed into our beautiful shore-line the storm's integrated kinetic energy was second only to Hurricane Isabel in 2003.

(IKE) Integrated kinetic energy is a new scale designed to better convey the destructive power from both a hurricane's wind and storm surge.  The IKE scale helps explain why Hurricane Sandy created such widespread flooding and damage.
