Hurricane Sandy

I hope everyone is having a great Monday. This seems to be a very crazy month and election time. I have been keeping myself up to date on Hurricane Sandy, all I can say is that all my prayers go out to everyone in the East Coast. I pray that everyone gets out safely and with no harm.

Hurricane Sandy has been predicted to be the biggest storm in the history of the United States in the East Coast area since the early 1800's. The Hurricane is headed towards Atlantic City, and all of the Jersey Area. They have asked everyone to evacuate, although they receive many hurricanes through out the year, and they know how to prepare, the Mayor has asked that everyone leaves because this one will be a really dangerous storm. There is also a full moon which will make the tide even bigger.

They have just now closed all bridges in Manhattan, the Stock Exchange has been closed for two days now. Prices will skyrocket, gas, food, everything! Especially gas prices. New York City and the Island of Manhattan will most likely put the world on hold. It is so scary. They say that the cleanup cost is estimated to be 20 billion dollars. The most expensive disaster cleanup in history, thus far. This Hurricane is really going to take a toll on the USA. The election candicates, both Romney and Obama even put a hold on their campaings because the Storm is so bad!

14k flights have been cancelled, leaving many travellers stranded, and airlines loosing a lot of money.

It is Monday 2.37pm Mountain Time, the storm hasn't even started yet, and it is already very ugly. This is only the beggining, and it will get even uglier. Its so scary, I pray all of our friends, family, neighbors, and acquaintances are safe. Please pray for those out there, and for their safety. Have a wonderful rest of the day.
