If aren’t near a television you can watch a live stream of The Weather Channel here.
Sandy is currently on track to make landfall sometime in the next 2 to 3 hours, bringing a storm surge of 6 or more feet, as much or more than a foot of rain in some locations, and in the Appalachians it will bring between 1 to 3 feet of snow with whiteout conditions. The Great Lakes are also expected to see a signification rise in water level.
In other words — ooga booga!
If you or someone you know is in the path of the storm, stay safe!
