Hurricane sandy is here finally and growing strong. We are continuously monitoring the weather conditions and the updates from various resources.
Last year it was Typhoon Muifa when we were in Shanghai and now we are hearing the Hurricane Sandy Ontario alert. It is already been given the super storm tag. The expected hit is by evening today and we can easily see the change in wind conditions. You can check also weather warning by Canada weather office here. A lot of flights have already cancelled. The meteorology department has issued heavy rainfall and potentially damaging winds warnings to all residents of Ontario. We hope that you all have gathered the necessary food, eatables and aids for coming days.
