Hurricane Sandy, 'Frankenstorm,' threatens East Coast
Hurricane Sandy: Autumn leaves could vanish early as an unusual mix of hurricane and winter storm bears down on New York City and New Jersey.
WASHINGTON — Government forecasters say a big storm that they are calling "Frankenstorm" is likely to blast most of the U.S. East Coast next week.
Forecasters on Thursday said there's a 90 percent chance that the East will get steady gale-force winds, flooding, heavy rain and maybe snow starting Sunday and stretching past Wednesday.
The hurricane part of the storm is likely to come ashore somewhere in New Jersey on Tuesday morning.
