Frankenstorm Tracking

At the moment Hurricane Sandy appears destined for landfall at the southern tip of New Jersey around 2am on Tuesday.
Hurricane Sandy will probably grow into a “Frankenstorm” that may become the worst to hit the U.S. Northeast in 100 years if current forecasts are correct. Sandy may combine with a second storm coming out of the Midwest to create a system that would rival the New England hurricane of 1938 in intensity, said Paul Kocin, a National Weather Service meteorologist in College Park, Maryland. The hurricane currently passing the Bahamas has killed 21 people across the Caribbean, the Associated Press reported, citing local officials.
New York City has already mobilized emergency storm agencies. You may recall that last year Mayor Bloomberg took the unprecedented step of completely closing the subway system and ordering the evacuation of the lowest-lying areas of the city during Hurricane Irene.
