This tree, but not it's roots, was just above the high water mark of the storm surge from SuperStorm Sandy.

Although Sandy was recorded as category 1 on the Saffir–Simpson hurricane scale, the size of the storm was so vast at over 1000 miles in diameter, that it's kenetic energy made it the second largest storm ever recorded on the Integrated Kinetic Energy Index.

Tropical systems are officially ranked on one of several tropical cyclone scales according to their maximum sustained winds and in what oceanic basin they are located. Only a few scales of classifications are used officially by the meteorological agencies monitoring the tropical cyclones, but some alternative scales also exist, such as Accumulated cyclone energy, the Power Dissipation Index, the Integrated Kinetic Energy Index, and Hurricane Severity Index.
