Record wave height recorded during Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy

The highest wave height ever recorded in the western Atlantic Ocean since records began being kept in 1975 was recorded at 8:50pm the night the storm hit. The wave height picked up by New York Harbor buoy #44065 was 32.5 feet. This exceeded the highest wave during Hurricane Irene the year before by some six feet.

Now you know. The big yellow diamond is where buoy #44065 is located.
