Sandy to Cause Widespread Disruption and Destruction

October 28, 2012; 3:51 PM ET

Sunday 5 PM

This is a video made late this afternoon showing where Sandy should go and what impacts to expect. The storm is still well out at sea, but it was supposed to be there according to previous forecasts. However, the various computer models have insisted the storm is about to hook to the left and head straight for the coast. The video shows where the storm should be at various times during the next couple of days. Keep in mind that dangerous wind and rain conditions will arrive long before the center reaches or passes you. In fact, the weather will slowly improve right after the center passes, but the damage will have been done. I'll write to you again tomorrow morning.
