Coast for Coast – December 1st 6:00pm – 10:00pm

The Monterey History and Art Association is a proud sponsor of "Coast for Coast" fundraiser for hurricane Sandy victims. at the Museum of Monterey, 5 Custom House Plaza (across from Fisherman's Wharf) in Monterey December 1st from 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm $25 at the door, all proceeds going to the American Red Cross to help with the damages from Sandy. The gigantic storm named Sandy caused an estimated $50 billion in damage as it inundated lower Manhattan with seawater, rearranged the New Jersey shore and Long Island, and tore up neighborhoods in far-flung areas of New York City's outer boroughs. "It's time to consign to history books a storm that reached 900 miles wide, carried winds speeds of more than 90 mph, caused billions of dollars in damage and claimed at least 55 lives...As far as storm strength, Sandy barely missed the record for hurricanes north of Cape Hatteras. Hurricane Gladys in 1977 has the lowest recorded atmospheric pressure at the center of the storm in that region. Gladys' barometric pressure was 27.73; Sandy's near-record low was 27.76. Category 4 hurricane Gladys wasn't nearly as broad as Sandy, however, and remained off the coast." -By Amy Hubbard October 31, 2012, 9:53 a.m. L.A. TIMES But we, the central coast, are here to help as a community with Domingo Rivera from 102.5 KDON's Morning Madhouse leading the way doing what he does best and that's throwing events.
