Hurricane Sandy news:
Hurricane Sandy, now a 900-mile megastorm, is forecasted to make landfall late Monday night in Atlantic City, N.J., bringing with it life-threatening storm surges, forceful winds and rainfall that could cripple transportation and leave millions without power.
The size and power of the storm are almost without equal as several systems will combine to wreak havok on a large section of the nation--from North Carolina to New England as far west as the Great Lakes.
Waves 20 to 25 feet are possible on the south side of Lake Michigan Monday night into Wednesday, along with beach erosion and flooding especially southeast of Chicago around Gary, Ind., and Michigan City with waves there as high as 33 feet.
This is unbelievable. Chicago is 800 miles off the Atlantic Coast and they're talking about 20-33 foot waves caused by this monster hurricane.
Readers in the Northeast, please play it safe. If they tell you to leave your home, LEAVE.
