The HRECOS network took a hard hit from Superstorm Sandy!
Click "Read More" to see a summary of the damage from South to North:
George Washington Bridge and Castle Point stations - unfortunately, both of these stations were taken down before the storm.
Piermont station - the water quality station was destroyed but the weather station survived and recorded data throughout the storm.
Pump Station at Marist College (Poughkeepsie) - the damage wasn't as bad as we feared and there will be no lasting impacts. The pumps failed during the surge and are still out of service. This means the instruments are no longer reading river water and the water quality measurements should not be believed.
Norrie Point Station - the monitoring instruments survived but the transmission equipment was destroyed. It is not clear how quickly we can replace these. No data should be lost, however.
Tivoli Station - the weather station survived and recorded data throughout the storm. The water quality stations were not reporting live were still recording data.
All stations north of Tivoli were undamaged and recorded data throughout the storm. These stations include Schodack, Albany, and Mohawk Lock 8. There are data gaps for 10/29-11/2 that we will fill in before 11/9 (data was recorded but not transmitted).
