Hurricane Sandy Weather Update
Posted 4:45 p.m.
The National Weather Service predicts the weather will remain dangerous overnight and into Tuesday.
The intensity of rain will vary based on rain bands, but we should expect another two to five inches of rain in the next 12 hours, for a total of five to 10 inches in our community.
As Hurricane Sandy makes landfall this evening, it will actually strenghten unlike a typical hurricane. By tomorrow morning, the center of the storm should be near the Mason-Dixon line in the Pennsylvania/Maryland area, but tropical storm force winds will still extend into our area. Winds will reach 55-65 mph for the next 24 hours.
