Hurricane Sandy vs Tropical Storm Irene – I was able to photograph the East Branch of the Pemigewasset River in Lincoln, New Hampshire from the same location during Hurricane Sandy and Tropical Storm Irene. Water levels during Hurricane Sandy did not compare to the raging rapids encountered during Tropical Storm Irene.
I will never forget seeing waves in the East Branch of the Pemi during Irene. Here are a few images from the same location during each storm. They will give you an idea on the water height during each storm.
