Storm projection for Hurricane Sandy

The Mid Atlantic region is getting ready for this season’s hurricane: Sandy. As of Friday morning (26 October, 2012) the storm is projected to make landfall on the east coast of the United States somewhere between the Chesapeake Bay and Long Island. Meteorologists are also suggesting that Sandy may combine with a nor’easter currently developing to create a much more powerful hybrid storm. Extensive damage, power outages and flooding are expected, with high winds, hurricane-force gusts and torrential rainfall that could last as much as a couple of days.
