Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy is heading north from eastern Cuba, crossing the Bahamas as a Category 2.  Southeast Florida is getting wind and rain:

… Gusty winds and increasing showers…

… Winds…
winds will increase through the rest of the day with gusts to 30 to
40 mph, highest over Metro areas of Southeast Florida as showers
move rapidly through the area. Winds are expected to increase even
more late tonight and especially on Friday as Hurricane Sandy
makes its closest approach to South Florida. Gusts of 40 to 50 mph are
expected on Friday, highest over the Metro areas of Southeast
Florida. A Wind Advisory is in effect for Metro Miami-Dade,
Broward and Palm Beach counties.

The latest forecast is for maximum sustained winds to remain below
tropical storm force. At this time… remain calm and stay informed.

It looks like New Jersey will feel the effects more directly than we will down here.
