Hurricane Sandy barreling for North Eastern United States
CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA: Weather officials confirmed this morning that Hurricane Sandy remains about 300 miles off the Northeastern coast of the United States.
“Expect it to move very slowly,” said James Franklin of the National Hurricane Center. “The large size of the system and its slow motion will mean a long-lasting event with two to three days of impacts.”
The hurricane itself has already claimed more than two dozen lives in the Caribbean, ripped through Jamaica, and is expected to make a heavy impact on the United States.
