""The whole thing is unprecedented," Henry Margusity of AccuWeather told NPR's Melissa Block. "We've never seen anything like this."

For one thing, Sandy is about to start moving the opposite direction from a typical storm system.

Tropical storms in the Atlantic usually make a right turn and head out to sea as they travel north up the coast. But Sandy is expected to turn left and head straight inland."

a safe building is one that is fully enclosed and has plumbing or wiring. Once inside, stay away from showers, sinks and bathtubs, as well as televisions, computers and other electronic equipment. A safe vehicle “is any full enclosed metal-topped vehicle” such as a car, minivan, bus or truck with a hard top. When inside, DO NOT USE electronic devices such as the radio during a storm. Do not take shelter under trees, and stay inside until 30 minutes after you hear the last thunder.

It's been raining A LOT lately. Not just from hurricane Irene about 2 weeks ago, but also from the remnants of Hurricane Lee that traveled up here from Alabama/Louisiana. Lee was just rain storms by the time it arrived, not a hurricane, but after all the rain of Irene, the earth has been incredibly drenched lately.
