    When Would the Storm Hit Boston?

    While the severity of the storm grabbing attention is still questionable, the storm would affect the Boston area spanning Sunday night through Tuesday.

    The storm, be it Sandy, a hybrid, a nor'easter or a period of rain and wind would advance quickly up the coast and may then stall. Hence, the unusually long period of nasty weather forecast.

    There is a risk of damaging wind, torrential rain, coastal and flash flooding, power outages, downed trees and travel disruptions due to storm ranging from a moderate nor'easter to a hurricane.


    The storm would be nearby during the full moon, a time when astronomical tides are the greatest.

    More details will become available with this storm over the next few days. However, if you have extensive preparations to do as a precaution, waiting until early next week would be too late.
