Hurricane Sandy’s impact is being felt along the N.C. coast hours before the storm is expected to make landfall near the border between Delaware and Maryland. The storm assaulted a 400-mile path along North Carolina’s coastline on Monday.
Utilities crews have begun repairs along the N.C. coast and are expected to turn their attention to the N.C. mountains which is slated to receive at least eight inches of snow. Utilities crews and rescue personnel will likely be deployed in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast states, where the storm is expected to have the biggest impact and cause millions of dollars worth of damage.
The Piedmont area is under a wind advisory.
