Hurricane Sandy: Evacuations launched as Sandy barrels into United States
HOBOKEN, NEW JERSEY: Officials confirmed to Daily News this morning that evacuations for some 50,000 people across New Jersey, to Delaware have been put into place after Hurricane Sandy barreled for the coast — in what several governors have dubbed the ‘Worst storm the east coast has ever seen’.
Initially dubbed ‘Frankenstorm’ the storm itself is expected to strengthen as it continues to barrel through Wilmington making way down south.
N.J Governor Chris Christie:
“Everyone’s saying, ‘This is crap, it isn’t going to happen. The weathermen always get it wrong, so I’m just going to hang out here,’” Christie said. “Please don’t, OK? We have to be prepared for the worst here.” You can follow Sandy’s progress here.
