Meanwhile, on the opposite coast...

Gale-force winds downed trees and utility lines and knocked out power to more than 600,000 homes and businesses Thursday as a record-smashing "bomb cyclone" roared across the Northeast.

Blame the bomb cyclone, aka "explosive cyclogenesis." *


A bomb cyclone occurs when the barometric pressure falls at least 24 millibars, or 0.71 inches, within 24 hours. The faster and steeper the drop, known as bombogenesis, the more intense the storm.
Are we Operating right now?
