From an altitude of 254 statute miles, external cameras on the International Space Station captured views of Hurricane Sandy at 11:16 a.m. Eastern time October 29, 2012 as it barreled toward a landfall along the New Jersey coastline. Significant impacts of storm surge and flooding are expected along the eastern seaboard from the Middle Atlantic states to New England. At the time of the flyover, Sandy was located 260 miles south-southeast of New York City, moving north-northwest at 18 miles an hour with winds measured at 90 miles an hour as a Category 1 hurricane, according to the National Hurricane Center. Landfall along or just south of the southern New Jersey coast is expected late in the evening on October 29 after which a turn to the west-northwest is expected. After moving inland over the mid-Atlantic states, a decrease in forward speed is expected. By mid-week, Sandy, as a post-tropical cyclone, is forecast to move northward and then northeastward across Pennsylvania and New York state dropping significant amounts of rainfall
