       How is that strange? The storm traveled from East to West, we got our share of it Monday into Tuesday, and Monday night is when it sank.

        These vessels did not sink as a result of the remnants (remainder, surviving trace), but as a result of Hurricane Sandy. The remnants moved and are presently to our west and north moving slowly eastward this many days later. We never saw remnants at the date and time these vessels sank, but did see  Sandy’s direct effects (rough seas and winds) as a hurricane during its landfall during this time period. We may see Sandy’s remnants in Northern Maine as wind (still 25kts) and rain over the next day or so.
