The eastern seaboard of the United States, from Virginia to Massachusetts, is under a state of emergency as Sandy, a snor’eastercane, makes its way inland from the Atlantic Ocean.

The storm formed as Hurricane Sandy from the south collided with a nor’easter from the north, coming ashore in New Jersey and bringing with it heavy rain, storm surges and flooding.

The Instagram community has been sharing photos from the storm–at a rate of nearly 10 each second–with the hashtags #hurricanesandy, #sandy and #frankenstorm.
