The National Hurricane Center now says tropical force winds from Sandy extended 820 miles at its widest, down from an earlier estimate of 1,000 miles. Its pure kinetic energy for storm surge and wave “destruction potential” reached a 5.8 on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's 0 to 6 scale, the highest measured.
