HATTERAS ISLAND, North Carolina (Reuters) – Hurricane Sandy could be the biggest storm to hit the United States mainland when it comes ashore on Monday night, bringing strong winds and dangerous flooding to the East Coast from the mid-Atlantic states to New England, forecasters said on Sunday.
Sandy could have a brutal impact on major cities in the target zone like Boston, New York, Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, one of the most densely populated regions of the country.
New York City’s subway, bus and train service will be suspended on Sunday evening, which could bring the country’s financial nerve center to a standstill.
