Hurricane Sandy could merge with a second storm out of the midwest to become the worst Northeast storm in 100 years, described as a Frankenstorm.
National Weather Service meteorologist Paul Kocin tells Bloomberg: “What we’re seeing in some of our models is a storm at an intensity that we have not seen in this part of the country in the past century … We’re not trying to hype it, this is what we’re seeing in some of our models. It may come in weaker.”
New York City Mayor Bloomberg has told residents in flood-prone areas to be prepared to evacuate before the storm hits around Tuesday of next week.
