Sandy's impact on Ponds

This is more of a request than a discussion. With the expected impact of Hurricane Sandy aka 'Frankenstorm' many ponds will be adversely affected.

Over the past few years, I have been compiling data as to how these tropical and extra-tropical cyclones affect the general health of pond fish, most notably Koi. There is a chance that some of the members of this group reside and service an area that will feel the impact of this particular storm, to a lesser or greater degree. I would appreciate receiving ANY data, no matter how trivial it may seem, on the observed effects, including any behavioral changes in the fish. If fish mortality is observed, I would appreciate such details as size and depth of pond and size of deceased fish. If any Water Tests are performed, the results of these tests would be of enormous value.
I know that this may be overstepping and asking a lot, but the results of this research may provide crucial information for future use. You may post here as a comment or by private message.
