You've probably already noticed the first gusts and showers from Hurricane Sandy, but the enormous storm won't completely make landfall until Monday night.
Forecasters project that the eye of the storm will hit Delaware and Southern New Jersey, but the size of the Hurricane means that areas as far north as New England and as far south as North Carolina will probably be affected by high wind and torrential rains. Areas affected by Hurricane Sandy might experience flooding and power outages.
If you don't already have one, now's a good time to create a disaster preparedness plan for you and your family. You can read the National Hurricane Center's hurricane preparedness tips at www.nhc.noaa.gov/HAW2/english/disaster_prevention.shtml (clicking the link will open it in a new window). The page offers tips on developing a family disaster plan, creating a disaster supply kit, and evacuation.
And most importantly, be safe!
