Remnants of Hurricane Sandy will hit Eastern Ontario tomorrow night: Queen's University expert

2012-11-06

Queen’s University coastal oceanography and engineering expert Ryan Mulligan is available to talk about what is still to come as the remnants of Hurricane Sandy are set to hit eastern Ontario.

“I’m a little confused why the media is saying that was Hurricane Sandy that hit eastern Ontario last night. It really wasn’t, it’s still coming” says Dr. Mulligan. “We did have high winds last night but the core of the storm remnants is still coming. I’m tracking it and it should be hitting Kingston tomorrow night. We still have a few days left of this major weather story.”

Dr. Mulligan has extensively studied Hurricane Irene and is currently writing a paper on the hurricane’s devastating impact.
