NOAA

All eyes are on Hurricane Sandy, which is still a Category 1 hurricane expecting to make landfall in the U.S. on Monday evening.  It is shaping up to be one of the largest hurricanes to ever hit the Eastern U.S. with an impact area of almost 1,000 miles wide.

According to CNN, as of 5p (ET), winds are at 75 mph.  The storm is expected to hit the New Jersey coast line, but North Carolina through Maine will also feel it’s effects.  In fact, in the metro area of New York, the storm surge could be 6-11 feet. In anticipation of that storm surge, evacuations orders have been issued for flood-prone sections of New York City. Officials are warning residents in the storm’s path that power outages could last for several days. Even Public Transit across New York, Philadelphia and New Jersey has already been suspended, affecting 10.8 million commuters.

President Barack Obama has already declared a state of emergency in the District of Columbia ahead of the arrival of Hurricane Sandy, earlier he had declared states of emergency for Maryland, Massachusetts and New York.
