The Perfect Storm of 2012?

Katia Sept 7 2011 1515Z

Could Hurricane Sandy, winter storm hybrid, be worse than the “Perfect Storm” of 1991 that slammed the East Coast? Some meteorologists believe so and have grown increasingly concerned, as Hurricane Sandy made landfall Thursday in Cuba and already turned deadly in the Caribbean.

Much of the U.S. East Coast has a good chance of getting blasted by gale-force winds, flooding, heavy rain and maybe even snow early next week by an unusual hybrid of hurricane and winter storm, federal and private forecasters say. Government scientists said Wednesday the storm has a 70 percent chance of smacking the Northeast and mid-Atlantic.

However, regardless of the exact track of Sandy it is likely that significant impacts will be felt over portions of the U.S. East Coast through the weekend and into early next week, the hurricane center reported this morning. It is important to prepare properly for the storm and to take all precautions necessary. I wanted to share a link with everyone courtsey of Ready.gov, it explains helpful safety tips for hurricane preparation: http://www.ready.gov/hurricanes
