BLOOMSBURG, Pa. (AP) — Up and down the East Coast, residents are stocking up on supplies and utilities are lining up extra crews in preparation for a monster storm barreling north from the Caribbean.
Hurricane Sandy is expected to make landfall early Tuesday near the Delaware coast. It's forecast to collide with two winter weather systems as it moves inland, creating a hybrid monster storm that could bring nearly a foot of rain, high winds and up to 2 feet of snow.
Experts say the storm could be stronger than Hurricane Irene and hit many of the same places as the devastating storm last year.
In Bloomsburg, Pa., Heather Peters and her husband bought a kerosene heater, 12 gallons of water, paper plates, batteries, flashlights and a lantern. She says, "I'm not screwing around this time."
