It's Official: Sandy Was No Hurricane

The National Weather Service designation affects deductibles on insurance claims and could save property owners money.

The National Weather Service has determined that the massive coastal storm that buried Ocean City under record floods on Oct. 29 was not a hurricane when it made landfall in New Jersey.

Staff writer Richard Degener reports in The Press of Atlantic City that meteorologists have determined that Category 1 Hurricane Sandy was a "post-tropical cyclone" by the time it reached the New Jersey coastline. The designation has an important impact on how insurance companies process claims for storm damage.

The storm caused power outages in all of Chatham Township and most of Chatham Borough. Some residents went without power for a week or more.
