Radio Smart Talk for Monday, December 31:

Hurricane Sandy devastated the East Coast in October.

As part of witf’s Top Stories of 2012 series, Radio Smart Talk looks back at the largest Atlantic tropical storm ever and its aftermath.

Forecasters were tracking Sandy for more than a week in the Atlantic Ocean.  Even up until the time the storm made landfall, it was difficult to tell where it would track, although they knew the storm was huge.

Pennsylvanians prepared for the worst.  Fortunately the storm tracked a little more south than expected and the state was spared the extensive damage New Jersey and New York got.  Pennsylvania still had thousands of power outages and other repercussions from the storm.

After Sandy hit, the talk turned to whether it was a sign of a changing climate.  One of the world’s foremost experts on climate change, Dr. Michael Mann of Penn State, appeared on Radio Smart Talk.

You can hear Sandy’s story on Monday’s program. Listen to the show:
