The country is bracing itself for Hurricane Sandy, as the powerful storm heads to the eastern United States. After killing 41 in Jamaica, Haiti, and Cuba, Hurricane Sandy is expected to enter somewhere near Chesapeake Bay, and cover at least eight states before heading over to Canada. The storm is predicted to merge into a blizzard before then, and shower at least a foot of snow on the unlucky Northeast. Emergency preparations are being implemented, with schools pondering closure, and travelers being warned of delays. Beware, the Frankenstorm is almost here.
