Yup, the hurricane force winds are in a ring around the eye, tropical storm force winds go out from that circle.
Not necessarily the case. Here is quote from the NHC on Sandy.

Quote:
HURRICANE-FORCE WINDS EXTEND OUTWARD UP TO 175 MILES...280 KM... MAINLY SOUTHWEST OF THE CENTER...AND TROPICAL-STORM-FORCE WINDS EXTEND OUTWARD UP TO 485 MILES...780 KM. SUSTAINED WINDS TO TROPICAL STORM FORCE ARE OCCURRING FROM SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND THROUGH LONG ISLAND AND LONG ISLAND SOUND...AND SOUTHWARD ALONG THE COASTS OF NEW JERSEY...DELAWARE...AND EASTERN VIRGINIA...AND INCLUDING ALL OF THE CHESAPEAKE AND DELAWARE BAYS.

Greetings from the Jersey Shore!

Hurricane Tracking 2012-manasquan.jpg

Well, it looks like the storm is accelerating... they are calling for landfall at about 5:00 pm EDT.

The power is getting spotty, with momentary dropouts every few minutes. The wind is gusty -- still one minute, then knock-you-off-your-feet the next.

They say the worst is yet to come. Nothing left to do but wait.

Cat 5 on a Destroyer in the middle of the Atlantic - you had a very good captain, helmsman, and crew. We don't get many hurricanes or Tropical Storms in this area, so anything over a mild breeze is huge

But, well, sandy isn't the largest one I've been through.

Usually that's good news, as far as the overall effect.

This shows 27 mph! That's fast!

But pressure's pretty low...

Brace yourselves. Hope everyone makes it through okay.

Faster it moves, that reduces the rain on your area.

Sandy was a CAT 1, a category 1, storm. The weakest hurricane. It can still kill and damage.

CAT 5 is the strongest.

National Hurricane Center has been talking about changing part of the hurricane scale. Safer-Simpson. Sometimes a cat 3 storm will come ashore with a cat 5 tidal surge. That is why the defintioins may be changed to just include the wind, and them mention the tidal surge as a separate thing. I haven't seen any definate date for this change to happen.

The NOAA did a fly over of this area after Katrina. This link is the photos. They will show you the casino that broke apart and went up onto highway 90.

The damage to Grand Casino in Gulfport, MS. Part of it is on the highway. http://ngs.woc.noaa.gov/storms/katrina/24330930.jpg
