NORWALK, Conn. – I’ve got photos of Hurricane Sandy damage at Norwalk’s Calf Pasture Beach but YouTube user WeatherNut27 has something better: time lapse photography of the damage being done, shot from a camera mounted at the Shea McGrath Memorial.

When the sun comes up you can see wave after wave of windy rain coming in, with dramatic variations of light. Finally, the video finishes with a montage of still photographs showing damage at the beach, including a destroyed building.

YouTube is populated by at least 18 videos showing the effects of Sandy coming in, including:

And, if you’d like to see more photos of Calf Pasture Beach damage and/or cleanup, more of mine are below.
