From New York to Utah: An Eyewitness Account of Hurricane Sandy

Monday night at 7:30, as Hurricane Sandy was passing through the city, Storee Powell talked with New York resident, Chelsey Gensel, a Cache Valley native and USU student majoring in liberal arts.

Sometimes tropical storms are sensationalized by the news. Gensel has the following recommendation for Utahns who are looking for good news sources about what's happening in New York.

"The WSJ [Wall Street Journal] and the New York times have taken down their paywalls so you can get access to their online news coverage. I get most of my news right now on Twitter. I follow the New York Transit Authority and Governor's office."

NASA's Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument on NASA's Aqua spacecraft captured this infrared image of Hurricane Sandy, another weather front to the west and cold air coming down from Canada at 2:17 p.m. EDT Oct. 29.
