Hurricane Sandy hits the Delaware Valley


    Hour 1

    With Hurricane Sandy roaring into the Delaware Valley, Radio Times covers the storm’s approach, the preparations made by residents and public safety officials throughout the region, and the early word of impacts. We’ll start the hour with an update from JOE MIKETTA, Warning Coordination Meteorologist with the Mount Holly, New Jersey, office of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Weather Service. Then, we’ll speak with PAUL YEAGER, longtime meteorologist and forecaster and author of “Weather Whys: Facts, Myths and Oddities.” We’ll get updates from the Jersey Shore from WHYY reporter Phil Gregory and from Manayunk from NewsWorks Community Editor Megan Pinto. And we’ll take listener phone calls about how Sandy is showing up in your neighborhood.
