According to The Weather Channel, Hurricane Joaquin is currently northeast of the Bahamas, not far from Superstorm Sandy’s previous location in the central Bahamas.
Despite this close proximity, it remains to be seen whether Joaquin will directly strike or spare the U.S. East Coast.
Superstorm Sandy’s biggest impact did not come from rainfall, but according to The Weather Channel, Hurricane Joaquin “appears poised to dump more widespread, torrential rainfall over a much larger area and population than Sandy did.”
