Keep The Hurricane Sandy States In Your Prayers

Rains, floods, and high winds are bearing down in eastern cities, as Hurricane Sandy moves northward with about 60 million people in its path and seems set to collide with two other weather systems to form one of the worst storms in the U.S. Tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes Sunday. Christian charity Salvation Army said it was mobilized to serve.

With top sustained winds of 75 mph with higher gusts, Hurricane Sandy was moving toward north at 14 mph with its eye swirling about 425 miles southeast of New York City early Monday, according to the National Hurricane Center.
With hurricane-force winds extending up to 175 miles from the storm's center, Sandy is expected to bring life-threatening storm surge, coastal hurricane winds and heavy Appalachian snows to the mid-Atlantic coast, forecasters warned.
The storm is still on track to become a historical storm for the mid-Atlantic and southern New England with New Jersey and New York City bracing for "very dangerous conditions and catastrophic damage," said Alex Sosnowski, senior meteorologist at AccuWeather Inc. The impact from Sandy will reach hundreds of miles from the center of landfall, including areas well inland and well ahead of the storm's landfall Monday night, he added.
States of emergency remain in Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and a coastal county in North Carolina.
