Residents of coastal communities affected by Superstorm Sandy in 2012 have been watching the path of Hurricane Joaquin closely – amid fears that history could repeat itself… The superstorm nearly wiped out the entire block and split a house in half. The night of Oct. 29, 2012 remains a vivid memory for those who lived through it… With so many fearing a second Sandy might be heading our way, CBS2 sat down with New Jersey State Climatologist Dr. Dave Robinson to discuss Joaquin. When asked if he saw any similarities to Sandy, Robinson, of Rutgers University, said, "At the moment, no."… Robinson credited "a combination of good models – which of course, still exist – and an atmosphere that didn’t change once it got moving" for the forecast accuracy for Sandy… Despite the differences between Sandy and Joaquin, the storms share at least one thing in common – both tracks move over unseasonably warm water and that could affect Joaquin’s strength as it nears our shores.
