If you have friends or family on the East Coast, it can be challenging to get the specific information you need in order to tell if they are safe.

That is why we compiled a series of websites you can use to track Hurricane Sandy for yourself. From storm trackers to people tweeting constant updates, our weather team lets you know where to go.

Storm Trackers

KRCR News Channel 7 uses the National Hurricane Center, which has several useful tools to track Sandy.

These tools include forecasting, maps and an interactive map that lets users zoom to where the storm is specifically hitting.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has also set up a StormCentral page for Hurricane Sandy. This might be the best one-stop-shop for Sandy news if you are looking for one site to continually check on.

The StormCentral page offers the latest storm advisories, satellite images, rainfall forecast graphics, tide and water level predictions, flooding forecasts and NOAA National Weather Service news.

For some hydrometeorological predictions, we recommend the this NOAA website, where you can view the precipitation forecast, atmospheric surface analysis and the latest public advisories.

If you want to watch wind speed, this beautiful wind map was created by two Google computer scientists. If you want to find a specific location, Weather Underground has a hurricane map that lets you zoom by zip code.
