U.S. northeast braces for Hurricane Sandy

As Sandy churns its way up the east coast, locals and officials are bracing for the hurricane's arrival. New Jersey governor Chris Christie has already declared a state of emergency. "I have issued today a mandatory evacuation for Sunday at 4:00 pm for the barrier islands, from Sandy Hook South to Cape May. In Atlantic City, I have ordered that the casinos be evacuated no later than 4:00 pm on Sunday." While some took the opportunity for a last swim in the increasingly choppy waters, others have started boarding up their homes and clearing their outdoor areas.

Sandy has been dubbed "Frankenstorm" by some weather watchers because it will combine elements of a tropical cyclone and a winter storm. Forecasters predict Sandy will make landfall between Maryland and southern New England late on Monday.
